Sorbents

Use our Sorb-Tex sorbents for easy spill clean up around machinery or leaking valves. Place the pads, socks or pillows on a spill or place under drips to prevent a larger mess. You can also order fully packaged spill kits for your trucks or facility that provide emergency containment of large spills until back up arrives.

General Purpose absorb both oil and water as well as hydraulic fluid, transmission fluid and coolants. The Oil Only sorbents soak up oil, gas and diesel fluids but not water. An oil only boom, for example, can pick up oil spills and leaks in a pond. Please call if you would like other options than shown below.
