Granular Absorbents are a traditional industrial absorbent material. Granular or loose absorbents typically consist of small granules or particles that are bulk packaged inside a bag.
EnviroMet is pleased to announce that a couple of changes in packaging have taken place for our two most popular Granular Absorbents, Optisorb and Solid-A-Sorb. Optisorb is now available in a 25 pound bag rather than a 33.3 pound bag. This new bag size is easier to handle and reduces the risk of lifting injury. Selectsorb is now called Solid-A-Sorb. Only the name has changed. Solid-A-Sorb is also packaged in 25 pound bags. Both the Optisorb and the Solid-A-Sorb are stacked 80 bags per pallet. [Read more…]
Gray Universal Socks are now made with a super-absorbent cellulose filler. The cellulose blend comes from a renewable and 100% recycled resource and has been treated with a flame retardant. This is a change from the poly-blend fill material that they were previously made from. The new cellulose material is very thirsty; a single sock can absorb more than a gallon of oils, coolants, solvents or water. Universal Socks are ideal for surrounding spilled fluids or wrapping around leaky machines, conforming around the base and offering a snug fit with no seepage. Contain spills to keep the liquid from spreading to larger areas and becoming slippery hazards. [Read more…]
