The 7 biggest mistakes when emptying spill pallets
It is not uncommon for liquids to leak and this can happen at any time. But what then? How does the liquid get out of the tray?

EQUIPPED FOR ALL EVENTUALITIES WITH DENSORB® ABSORBENT MATERIALS
Being prepared for an emergency means having procedures and response equipment in place at all times. This is especially true when handling liquids that are hazardous to water and the environment, such as oils or chemicals. Things can easily go wrong in everyday tasks such as filling and dispensing, when a container is leaking, or during maintenance work on machines and systems. It is important to prevent even the smallest quantities from entering the environment. With the right absorbent material, you can do this and save money in the process.
Choose the right type for your application
Universal Socks are for use in most liquid cleanup jobs where aggressive chemicals are not likely to be encountered.
Oil-Only Socks & Booms
Oil-Only Socks are especially designed to quickly wick oil-based liquids and fuels. Due to their ability to repel water, these socks are perfect for outdoor placement to absorb hydrocarbons without becoming saturated with rainwater.
Oil-Only Booms are heavy-duty, water repelling sorbents designed to capture and hold oil-based liquids spilled or deposited into waterways. Even when fully saturated, these booms will continue to float.
Hazmat Socks are suited for absorbing acids, bases, and other aggressive liquids. Also able to be used for oil or water-based spills.
DENSORB absorbent socks and booms have been developed for containing leaks and use in areas which are difficult to access. Use DENSORB socks from the Universal range to safely absorb oils, coolants, lubricants, solvents, antifreezes, oil-water emulsions and other aqueous fluids as well as non-aggressive acids and alkalis. The sock contains extremely absorbent polypropylene. Their flexible casing allows absorbent socks to be shaped.
