REDUCE COSTS • INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY • IMPROVE SAFETY
Brady SPC - An Environmentally Friendly Company As a socially responsible company, Brady SPC continually strives to reduce waste by reusing 97% of materials. In working to sustain unused materials, Brady SPC replenishes all wasted raw materials and reduces the amount of materials sent to landfills. Brady SPC’s ultimate goal is to eliminate waste, conserve energy, recover resources and continue to work towards a zero waste facility.
WHY IS SPILL CONTROL IMPORTANT?
Beyond the obvious need to protect our environment and to reuse or recycle as often as we can, a proper spill control programme can create a safe and productive work environment for your employees. By complying with EPA and OSHA regulations around spill control we provide our people with conditions that allow for the greatest productivity and the least amount of down time for our facilities.
The cost of non-compliance around this area of regulation can be devastating to any business.
KNOW WHAT YOU’RE ABSORBING
Having the right absorbent for the job makes a big difference. Proper product selection can make your employee’s jobs easier, create a safer work environment, and even save you money! These three easy steps will help you find the correct SPC absorbent product for your application.
Oil Only Absorbents
These absorbents are specialised for oil and other petroleum-based spills including paints and other non-water soluble chemicals. These absorbents will not absorb water and will float indefinitely.
And other oil-based fluids
All-purpose products that clean-up oils, coolants, solvents and water-based fluids anywhere in your facility. Use around machinery, under leaky pipes, in messy traffic areas or for general maintenance projects.
• Vegetable oil
• And other water-based fluids
Surfactant-treated polypropylene absorbents can be used on a wide range of chemicals, including hydrofluoric acid, and are chemically inert, so they will not react with aggressive fluids.
• Aggressive chemicals
• Citric acid
• Sodium hydroxide
• And other unknown chemicals
Benefits From Meltblown Polypropylene
75% of (industrial) companies are still using granular to clean up spills and leaks because they don’t have or know an alternative, or because they believe that granular is the cheapest solution.
At first glance, this may be true but the cost comparison below will show that meltblown polypropylene sorbents are a less costly alternative even though the initial purchase price may be higher.
Alternative Options: Spillfix & Cansorb
