Spill Response Equipment

Prochem Agencies specialises in supplying spill kits Australia wide. They have a wide range of Spill Kit equipment to assist you in handling a spill in the workplace.


General Manager John Colvin says there are a number of components necessary to control, contain and clean up a spill.


"I have noticed that careful consideration is required when determining the location of the spill kit and what type of components should be included in the spill kit.


"Oil pollution equipment includes items such as booms, absorbent materials portable bunds, drain seals, filter bags and socks, and pad and pillows.


"There a many hydrocarbon absorbent materials in the market place including clay, diatomaceous earth, silica, cotton husk, peat moss, paper and coconut hush and most of these materials are used in booms, pillows and socks to either absorb or contain a hydrocarbon spill.


"When you look at the absorbent pads you not only have different coloured pads but the pad may be manufactured from cotton or propylene or some other absorbing material.


"There are a couple of different pillows available including the universal type which are spun bonded poly outer and filled with cellulose fibre. It's ideal for where the spill application is not on water but the area is wet.

"On the other hand the Organic pillows are manufactured from 100% biodegradable outer and filled with cellulose fibre. No good for water applications or where there is evidence of water.


"Booms are available to contain spills and are available either single or double skinned, fitted with floatation booms or stainless steel clips to connect two or three booms together to contain a spill in a creek or dam."


John suggests regularly reviewing and auditing your spill containment equipment to ensure it meets your site specific application.
