To clean up oil spills, our company has successfully developed HYDROCABS in its Environmental Management Department

HYDROCABS is made from Sphagnum Peat Moss fibers, which have been selected, dried, shaken and bagged. After these operations, a hydrophobic product with the property of absorbing hydrophobic substances such as hydrocarbons, oils, fats, proteins and which repels water is obtained.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ABSORBENT PEAT

MOISTURE AS A DETERMINING FACTOR
IMPORTANT: The variable that differentiates absorbent peat is moisture. This modifies the performance, its useful life and the cost. In the chart below, you can see why HYDROCABS is the most efficient peat in the market.

Industrial absorbents are used to clean oil spills (raw oil and its derivatives) and chemicals, which can lead to soil or water contamination.

There are different types of absorbents: mineral ones, based on clay, such as sepiolites, and organic ones, which are peat-based.

✿ The first ones turn out to be abrasive because they have silica crystals in their composition and so have less absorption power.

✿ Peat based absorbents have great absorption power and bring substantial benefits to the environment. In its natural state, due to its molecular properties, it is oleophilic (it absorbs oils quickly) and hydrophobic (it repels water).

To increase its absorption process, peat fibers are specially treated to absorb and encapsulate oil, solvents, heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides on contact.

COMPARATIVE TABLE OF ABSORBENCE BASED ON 120 LITERS OF RAW PETROLEUM WITH A SPECIFIC GRAVITY OF 0.904

TYPICAL ABSORPTION TIMES ARE THE FOLLOWING:

GASOLINE 2 seconds
DIESEL OIL 5 seconds
MOTOR OIL 20 seconds
BLOOD 30 seconds
LIGHT RAW OIL 60 seconds
HEAVY RAW OIL 90 seconds
GASOLINE 2 seconds

They absorb a high range of chemicals, not just heavy raw oil.
