SorbaSet S™ is a patented acid neutralizer/solidifier specifically formulated to treat spills of mineral and organic acids including, but not limited to: sulfuric, hydrochloric, nitric, phosphoric, chromic, formic, hydrofluoric, and acetic. MOST ACIDS ARE NO LONGER HAZARDOUS.
Amendments to the RCRA regulations enacted on November 8, 1994 prohibit land burial of free liquids, and liquids absorbed on biodegradable substrates or materials that release liquids under pressure.
Absorbing a spill of an acid or alkali leaves behind material just as corrosive, toxic, and reactive as before. Absorbents DO NOT CHANGE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A WASTE! The absorbed waste MUST be neutralized and solidified before landfill burial! If you don't do it, your waste management company must. And they will CHARGE for this treatment, at quite a rate.failure to dispose of these materials properly can lead to severe fines.
This bar graph below demonstrates the retention abilities of solidification vs. absorption. Only the solidified OMNI compounds offer proper retention to meet new regulations for secure land burial.
The SorbaSet™ series are similar to OMNI-KAP™ in having neutralization properties (SorbaSet B™ for alkalis) and high absorption and fume repressing qualities. Universal SorbaSet™ will solidify non-aqueous liquids with a simple addition of water. Pollutants treated with OMNI-KAP™ and the SorbaSet™ series are not as leach resistant as those treated with OMNI-FIX™ and OMNI-TRAP™ media.
US PATENT #4517095 AND #4436645
30 lbs. of SorbaSet S neutralizes and solidifies: 5 qts. 40% Hydrochloric Acid; 3 qts. 40% Hydrofluoric Acid; 7 qts. 40% Nitric Acid; 5 qts. 78% Acetic Acid; 3 qts. 85% Phosphoric Acid. The final neutralization of SorbaSet S is the calcium salt of the acid in an inorganic cementatious matrix. As outlined above, except for Fluoride Acids, this is NO LONGER TOXIC, REACTIVE, OR CORROSIVE.
