Absorbent Solutions

Having a clean shop, free of oil, hydraulic fluid, or other chemicals is crucial for productivity. Nothing is worse than having a machine or press go down with a massive oil spill. And if you’re not prepared, it can potentially set you back hours or days with countless financial losses.

That’s why it’s important to always have an absorbent solution ready. The most common way to clean up a nasty spill is with clay granules, also known as Oli-Dri or “Kitty Litter” (and often times used for just that!). Probably the most cost effective route, clay granules soak up fluids and are easily disposed of.

Another option which has become very popular is using absorbent pads, also referred to as “Pig Mats”. These pads (made from meltblown polypropylene) come in a variety of sizes, and are offered in a universal style for picking up any liquid, or an oil-only style meant for - you guessed it - exclusively oil.

Absorbent socks and pillows with a foam filling are also available. These are typically used where a spill/leak is expected, and meant to absorb larger amounts of liquid over time.
