Enware Australia’s exceptional Imbiber captures spills and will not release waste into either land or water. Enware SafeEquip has introduced an environmental spill capture system that will not release waste under any conditions once it has been absorbed. The Imbiber Bead super absorbent polymer system, which will absorb a spill without leaking is suitable for usage in waterways as a protective barrier to prevent leakage from land into water or from water on to land.
The spill capture system is effective on hydrocarbons and a wide range of organic chemicals and incorporates a colour indicator that facilitates easy monitoring when it is used as a protection shield in waterways and other areas at all times. Two Imbiber Beads are available in standard packs that measure 18 x 18 cm. Tests have shown that it can absorb a litre of diesel fuel in water over 15 minutes. Imbiber beads are available in different packs, pillows or powder blends to suit varying applications. They can also be incorporated into the trolley-mounted Enware SafeEquip.
Safety stations key features of the product include:
A saturated Imbiber Bead pillow can be squeezed and no organic liquid will drop out. The fully immobilised liquid reduces vapour emissions, the associated health risks of explosion and fire. When squeezed, only water will come out. Less waste is produced for cleanup because Imbiber Beads are selective, unaffected by water and retain spilled hydrocarbons so effectively. Imbiber Beads are part of SafeEquip’s comprehensive range of safety products, including spill containment and dispensing solutions, environmental and worker protection products, bunding and racking systems, multiple drum spill pallets and workstations, bulk container systems, portable spill containment berms, salvage drums and emergency response equipment including customised spill kits, Zeomed spill management systems and shower, eyewash and decontamination solutions.
