SorbaSolv™ - Engineered to be the only completely water repellent, environmetally-sound lipophilic absorbent material on the market

SorbaSolv™ is a patented recycled cellulose based oil absorbent that has an extremely high absorbency combined with permanent water repellency and oil retention. Effective on water and land, SorbaSolv absorbs oil, greases and other water insoluble organics and contains no toxic, carcinogenic or biologically hazardous materials.

SorbaSolv can be applied as a loose particulate by air, sprayed from a water craft, or incorporated into booms and pillows for various aquatic applications. The captured oil can then be recycled into a usable product or incinerated. SorbaSolv can also be tilled into the ground to help remediate contaminated soil.

Features:
  • The original cellulose absorbent
  • A patented high efficiency oil sorbent (U.S. Patent # 4780518)
  • 97% recycled cellulose fibers
  • Biodegradable, non toxic
Benefits:
  • Absorbs 10 to 20x its own weight
  • Highest absorption rate of any fiber
  • Accelerates bioremediation
  • Effective on land, sea, and fresh water
  • Works in any temperature
  • Absorbed oil will not leach back into the environment
  • Apply as a loose particulate or as a boom or pillow
  • Will not absorb water or sink
  • Can be used as a filter substrate
  • Captured oil can be recycled
  • Safe to incinerate. Low ash. High BTU.
  • Water / Oil Spill Clean Up
  • Land Remediation
  • As a Filter Substrate
  • Additional Information
  • Regulatory Considerations

SorbaSolv booms, pads, and loose particulate are highly effective against large or small oil spills in salt or fresh water. The oil is first contained, absorbed, and recovered using various collection methods. Then, by simply applying pressure and/or compression to the sorbent, the oil is released allowing it to be recycled.

An effective method of site clean up is soil washing. This process separates oil from sandy, high humic and high clay content soil, reducing its leaching potential ten to twenty-fold by incorporating SorbaSolv into the process. Batch mixing with agitation and column elution are the two most effective methods to completely remove and eventually dispose of the pollutant. SorbaSolv is ideal for beach /sand remediation.

By relying on a phase separation process, SorbaSolv will absorb non-water soluble organics from aqueous liquid and vapor mixtures. For years, SorbaSolv has been used as a filter substrate for the removal of oils, solvents, and other water insoluble organics from aqueous waste streams in support of the Clean Water Act.

Refer to the SorbTech Mfg., Inc. STOP-IT! data sheet for additional information on the handling and disposal of oils and other organic wastes. SorbTech Mfg., Inc. supplies a solidifying flocculentSorbTech Mfg., Inc.-FIX™ that will precipitate most acrylic, PVA and other resin emulsion and lattices. The supernatant liquid may be passed through aSorbaSolv™ filter for final clarification prior to discharge.

Allow enough head space in filter for the amount of liquid to be treated. Do NOT treat aggressive acids or caustics without previous neutralization to avoid degradation of media. The use of a coarse screen to remove solids prior to filtering is advised. SorbaSolv™ particulate is very light (10 obs./ft.3) the use of a weighted screen or plate to avoid floating is essential. Final clarification can be detected by the use of Oil Indicating Papers or a turbidity meter. Exhausted media will allow all to pass.
