Effectively Managing Small Leaks: The Role of Sorbents

Understanding Sorbent Types: Universal, Oil-Only, and HazMat for Varied Applications

Small leaks or spills are more than housekeeping issues; they are a liability. And sorbents are an effective way to contain and clean up these accidents before they become problems quickly.

Typically made of polypropylene, sorbents are commonly offered for three different groups.

Universal for both water-based and oil-based chemicals

Oil-Only for use on water to absorb floating hydrocarbons

HazMat for aggressive, caustic chemicals


DENSORB Sorbents are characterized by their highly absorbent properties. Historically, sorbents have been viewed by the marketplace as commodity items, with each performing at about the same level as the other. But as manufacturing techniques have evolved, higher quality sorbents- like Fine Fibre Sorbents- have been developed.

Fine Fibre Sorbents, as opposed to standard coarse fibre sorbents, are a tightly woven net of eight layers of sorbent material. The resulting product is a superior-performing sorbent in the critical areas of durability, absorption, and chemical retention. Fine Fibre Sorbents resist ripping and tearing, absorb upwards to 16 times their weight, and do this with little or no leakage.

DENIOS DENSORB Fine Fibre Sorbents also come pre-packed in Emergency Spill Kits. These kits come in various spill capacities and feature a mix of sorbent products designed to help you react quickly, efficiently, and effectively to spills ranging from a few ounces to many gallons.

Fine Fiber Sorbents

Oil absorbents: As the name suggests, these absorbents are for hydrocarbon-based liquids such as petrol, diesel and lubricants. Oil absorbents do not filter or demulsify a solution. They do not absorb water, but you can easily apply them in or to water. This type of absorbent is available as DENSORB Absorbent Granules, which absorb oil spillage.

Universal absorbents: Universal absorbents such as DENSORB Absorbent Rolls are ideal for absorbing cooling, solvents, emulsions and non-corrosive liquids and chemicals. Some of these absorbents contain cellulose, which will react when they come into contact with oxidizing or corrosive liquids. Therefore, it is crucial that you check the composition and not use certain products with liquid chemicals that can react with the absorbent material.

Special absorbents: DENIOS also has special absorbents designed for corrosive liquid chemicals such as acids and alkalis. For example, you can use DENSORB Absorbent Socks when the liquid is unknown and you fear it is aggressive.
