See the above Spill Kit Chart as to which spill kit you may need? General Purpose (GP), Oil & Fuel or Hazchem.
The two essential differences between any spill kit is what volume of liquid it can absorb, defined in litres and what sort of liquid the spill kit can effectively absorb and safely contain.
There are a number of factors and issues to consider when designing, resourcing and locating spill kits and response equipment. Selecting the right equipment for the appropriate risk response, the amount required for containment/clean-up and how it is to be stored and accessed, are just a few considerations to be addressed.
There are also a range of products available to suit the type and risk, of fluid spilt and components can be altered to suit the particular situation. Determine which liquids may be spilt and then which type of absorbent you require.
Whilst we have a standard range of kits, we can manufacture custom made units to client's requirements.
The basic five types of spill kits in our range are:
General Purpose Spill Kits
These kits have absorbents that will deal with both water based non-hazardous liquids (coolants, water based paints etc) as well as hydrocarbons.
Oil & Fuel Spill Kits
Hydrocarbon kits are designed to recover oils & fuels in and around water and wet conditions without absorbing the water.
Hazchem Spill Kits
Are best for most chemical liquids such as acids, bases and general chemicals but can also still absorb hydrocarbons and general fluids.
Acid/Alkali Neutralizer Spill Kits
Containing specific purpose neutralizer absorbent powders.
Special Fluid Spill Kits
Recommended for specific risk liquids such as body fluids, mercury, formaldehyde etc and contain absorbents to best handle these fluids.
