FAQ
 The questions:

 
  1. I want to absorb a viscous liquid (like paint). What material is the most suitable for this?  
  2. A layer of sludge is left behind on the water purification basin because bio-organisms die off. How can I get this off?  
  3. Red diesel oil has accidentally been discharged in the water in the harbour. How do I clear this up quickly?  
  4. I have to store my dangerous substances in accordance with PGS15.  
  5. How can I measure the saturation of the Rhino Rug and when do they need to be replaced?  
  6. A department of our hospital stores desinfactants and cleaners, work stock only. Which sorbent can we use in case of emergency?  
  7. During the production process the machine leaks oil so that the work floor becomes slippery. What can I do about this?  
  8. I want to know how to store a particular substance.  
  9. In our company we have a store for liquefied butane gas. As a result of an environment inspection we are looking for a system that will close off the drain holes adequately so that this product cannot flow into the drains in the event of a leak. Do you have a proposal for this?  
  10. There is a chance that chemicals will be spilt in the laboratory. Are there incident packs available for this?  
  11. How can I best remove floating dirt on water?  
  12. There is oil on top of the cooling fluid in the reservoir. Are there ways to remove this?

  Question:  
  A layer of sludge is left behind on the water purification basin because bio-organisms die off. How can I get this off?  
  Answer:  
  Special skimmers have been developed by Absorbit for this purpose. Ask us about the possibilities that can be specially geared to your particular situation.

  Question:  
  Red diesel oil has accidentally been discharged in the water in the harbour. How do I clear this up quickly?  
  Answer:  
  The diesel oil can be dammed quickly with booms. These are laid in the water around the oil slick to prevent it from becoming bigger. The booms absorb the oil straightaway and remain floating even when saturated. You must lay Oil Only mats inside the booms to clear up the residue.

  Question:  
  I have to store my dangerous substances in accordance with PGS15.  
  Answer:  
  The PGS15 guidelines have been adopted as part of the legislation by many municipalities. Absorbit has both fire resistant cabinets and fire resistant safes for the storage of dangerous substances that all comply with the PGS15 standards and have also been approved by TNO. We will be pleased to visit you to make an inventory and provide sound advice.

  Question:  
  How can I measure the saturation of the Rhino Rug and when do they need to be replaced?  
  Answer:  
  This is due to the quantity and the speed of the spill. Measuring is not necessary, a visual check is effective. When spots appear on the back of the Rhino Rug replacement is needed. Spots appearing when it rains are no reason for replacement. These spots disappear when the water evaporates and they have no effect on the quality and absorption capacity of the material.

  Question:  
  A department of our hospital stores desinfactants and cleaners, work stock only. Which sorbent can we use in case of emergency?  
  Answer:  
  Multi Industrial Sorbents are the right choice for absorbing desinfactants and cleaners. The grey absorption material is suitable for maintenance and it has little fluff (Multi Industrial Ultra Strong). You'll find more information here.

  Question:  
  During the production process the machine leaks oil so that the work floor becomes slippery. What can I do about this?  
  Answer:  
  Drip leakage during a production process is a very commonly occurring problem. You can keep the work floor clean by laying Basic snakes around the machine to absorb the leaks straightaway. The work floor can be kept clean by using Multi Industrial mats or Rhino Rugs. The mats absorb any splashes and retain these so that the floor surface remains clean. You can walk over the mats and there are also mats that can be driven over with a forklift truck!

  Question:  
  I want to know how to store a particular substance.  
  Answer:  
  Storing different substances and combinations of these is subject to different regulations. You will find more information in Wet milieubeheer (Environment control act) and in the PGS 15 (Packaged dangerous substances). You can also inform us of the substances and the quantities to be stored and you will receive advice about how and where you can store the substances without any obligations.

  Question:  
  In our company we have a store for liquefied butane gas. As a result of an environment inspection we are looking for a system that will close off the drain holes adequately so that this product cannot flow into the drains in the event of a leak. Do you have a proposal for this?  
  Answer:  
  The Drainseal mat is suitable for this. The mat prevents the liquid from running into the drain. The unique urethane material allows the mat to stick temporarily to any smooth surface such as stelcon plates and steel drain hole covers.

  Question:  
  There is oil on top of the cooling fluid in the reservoir. Are there ways to remove this?  
  Answer:  
  You can remove oil by using absorbent materials from the Oil Only line. These remain floating on water and cooling fluids even when saturated, and absorb the oil floating on the surface. Absorbent pillows are especially suitable for this purpose. The loop makes it easy to fix the pillow and remove it from the cooling fluid reservoir.
