  • Peat Sorb is certified SEG incinerable
  • Provides a lower cost solution to its users, virtually eliminating their environmental liabilities, creating a safer, easier working environment for employees
  • Absorbs approx 1 gallon per 1 lb Peat Sorb
  • Absorbs hydrocarbons instantly on land and water
  • We carry sealed double compressed bag, 4 cubic feet.

 

APPLICATION OF PEAT SORB ON LAND:

For a land spill, apply Peat Sorb around the perimeter of the spill. This will prevent the hydrocarbon from spreading further. If a hydrocarbon is present, Peat Sorb changes colour from light brown to black when it comes into contact with the spill. Apply Peat Sorb to the remainder of the spill until it stops changing colour.

Peat Sorb is a highly efficient absorbent, you will require less Peat Sorb than any other product to clean up a spill. Peat Sorb is approximately ten times more efficient than clay based absorbents. One pound of Peat Sorb will absorb approximately 1 U.S. gallon or 4 litres of a hydrocarbon. Absorption rates depend on the viscosity of the hydrocarbon. If the spill occurs outside, apply the Peat Sorb upwind from the spill so that any breezes will aid with the application and the Peat Sorb won’t blow back onto the applicator. Peat Sorb absorbs on contact.

APPLICATION OF PEAT SORB ON WATER:

  • Peat Sorb is hydrophobic and therefore it will float on water.
  • Peat Sorb will float for several days before it starts to re-hydrate.

However, the hydrocarbon absorbed will continue to be locked up inside the Peat Sorb and will not leach out. Peat Sorb is excellent for cleaning up ALL spills, especially along shorelines, for easy and fast removal with skimmers. It also protects natural environments.
