OILVAC is a range of oil and chemical absorbent products that offer rapid absorption & remediation of environment spills from hydrocarbon and chemicals, both on water and land. It is a field-proven industrial absorbent that is an economical, fast-acting solution to an environmental problem that could otherwise take years to resolve.
The Ecotech Africa Range consists of a choice of five different types of organic fibre absorbents, used for the absorption of hazardous environmental spill with the added advantage of bioremediation of contaminated soil.
How does OILVAC Work?
Ecotech Africa Absorbents comprises of a matrix of capillaries exposing a large surface area to the hydrocarbon or chemical spill.
The high surface tension within these capillaries enables the organic fibre within the product range to hold between 5 to 14 times its own weights in liquids. This gives it the ability to absorb spills which have occurred over vast areas on land and water application.
It will not leach or discharge absorbed pollutants, making it clean and easy to handle. The Ecotech Africa range of products’ high vapour suppression capacity reduces combustion vapours, eliminating the chance of explosion.
The entire Ecotech Africa product range is non-abrasive, non-toxic, non-leaching, non-carcinogenic, and in its natural state is already biodegraded. It can also be used by anybody – it requires minimal protective clothing or specialised training technicians to handle and dispose of the product.
