Oil absorbing pads are a type of absorbent material that is designed to soak up oils and other hydrocarbons from surfaces. They are often used in industrial and automotive settings to clean up spills and leaks, as well as in environmental cleanup efforts. In general, oil absorbing pads can be an effective tool for removing oils from a variety of surfaces, but they are not always the best option for every situation.

One of the main benefits of oil absorbing pads is their ability to quickly and effectively remove oils from a surface. They are made from a variety of materials, such as polypropylene, cellulose, or fiberglass, that are highly absorbent and can soak up large amounts of oil in a short period of time. This makes them a convenient and efficient tool for cleaning up spills and leaks, as they can be placed directly on the affected area and will absorb the oil as it comes into contact with the pad.

However, oil absorbent pads do have some limitations. One of the main drawbacks is that they can only absorb oils and other hydrocarbons, and are not effective at removing other types of contaminants. Additionally, they may not be suitable for use on certain surfaces, such as porous materials or fabrics, as the oils can become trapped in the pores or fibers and be difficult to remove. In these cases, other cleaning methods may be more effective.

Overall, oil absorbent mat can be a useful tool for removing oils from a variety of surfaces, but they are not a one-size-fits-all solution. It is important to consider the specific needs of the situation and choose the most appropriate method for cleaning up spills and leaks. In some cases, oil absorbing pads may be the best option, while in others, other methods may be more effective.

In conclusion, oil absorbent mat can be a useful tool for removing oils from surfaces, but they have some limitations and may not be the best option in every situation. It is important to consider the specific needs of the situation and choose the most appropriate method for cleaning up spills and leaks.In case of oil leakage, oil absorption pads can be used to absorb oil leakage. Oil absorption pads are also called absorption cotton, industrial absorption cotton, and sometimes people simply call them oil absorption cotton. It can be divided into oil absorbent pads, chemical absorbent cotton (also known as chemical absorbent cotton, absorbent cotton) and universal absorbent cotton according to the characteristics of absorbent materials. The oil absorption pads can control and absorb petroleum hydrocarbons, large-scale oil spill accidents at sea, etc. The  oil absorption pads is the most commonly used item to dispose of the leakage after the oil spill. After dehydration and deoiling, the oil absorption pads only absorbs oil, not water, and is specially suitable for absorbing petroleum hydrocarbons, hydrocarbons, etc. (such as petroleum, gasoline, lubricating oil, paint, etc.). This kind of product does not absorb water when it is used on the water surface. After saturation, it floats on the water. It can absorb 10-20 times of its own weight. Usually white. It can be used for the treatment of mechanical oil pollution, drainage ditch oil pollution, warehouse and wharf oil pollution, river oil pollution, etc., to keep the working environment clean and prevent explosion accidents caused by oil and gas volatilization.

What is the difference between oil absorption pads and general adsorbent?

  •  Adsorbent is the key to deal with the leakage of oil and chemicals. Adsorbents used for oil chemical leakage treatment are usually divided into three types Class 1: inorganic adsorbents, such as granular soil, sand, silica, vermiculite, calcium silicate, silica gel, active Alumina, molecular sieve, natural clay, etc. The second is organic adsorbents, such as chaff, sawdust, cotton, rags, straw Corncob fragments, coarse bran, wheat germ powder, degreased corn germ powder, grains with strong water absorption, etc. Type III polypropylene suction Attached cotton, oil absorbent cotton or chemical absorbent cotton. Compared with oil absorbent cotton:Low absorption rate: 1-2 times absorption.Absorption selectivity: good for oil absorption, but poor for paint absorption.

  •  The oil absorbent mat is made of polypropylene fiber material. Comparison with adsorbent:High absorption rate: absorb 20~25 times of its own weight.Fast absorption: calculated in minutes.Low adsorption selectivity: it has a good adsorption effect on oil, organic solvents, hydrocarbons, vegetable oil and other liquids. The cleaning cost is low, saving money and time.The oil absorbent pads is suitable for cleaning, containment and prevention of any possible oil and chemical leakage areas, including manufacturing Transportation industry, petrochemical industry, maritime emergency rescue, port, aviation, public security and fire protection, medical industry, energy and power industry, environmental protection bureau, military, food processing industry, etc Except for places with liquid leakage.

In what environment is the oil absorption pads suitable?

  • The oil absorb pads is suitable for industrial manufacturing and used in all places where liquid leakage or oil and chemicals storage and distribution may occur, including the storage area, around machines and pipelines, near oil tanks and equipment, under trains and trucks, near valves, under aircraft, workbench, etc.

  • oil sorbent mat are suitable for automobile, aircraft and train manufacturers, plastic factories, injection molding factories, mold factories Steel mills, mines, machinery plants, metal processing plants, oil refineries, oil companies, shipbuilding Factories, chemical plants, food processing plants, paper mills, optical fiber factories, cable factories, oil / Chemicals Storage companies, refineries, oil depots, environmental cleaning companies, leakage prevention contractors, fire prevention Department, energy power plant.

  • The oil absorb pads is applicable to maritime oil spill emergency rescue, port terminals, coastal defense, shipping ships Fire prevention department, environmental cleaning company, emergency center, laboratory, school, hospital, disease Control center, power supply department, military organization, municipal water treatment plant, public transportation, automobile Repair, hospitals and other medical institutions, environmental protection bureau, aviation, public security and fire control.

  • Other service industries public and private service industries are also the main users of oil sorbent mat, including power supply departments, industrial and military institutions, municipal water treatment plants, public transport, airport and airline service institutions, and automobile repair. Liquid leakage or overflow in industrial production can cause safety glue, etc., which will cause equipment leakage.

How to deal with the oil absorption pads after use?

Use them as energy. Called "waste to energy", you can use these materials for energy purposes in the form of electricity and / or heat. oil absorbent pads uses waste as a source of fuel. oil absorbent mat can better convert waste into energy because they are likely to contain oil-based products. Garbage power generation is popular in Europe, but not in the United States. oil absorbent mat working principle is to burn waste, then send this energy to the power grid, and then distribute it to local families and enterprises.oil absorbent pads can be used to heat hot water and for steam conversion, and industry uses oil absorbent pads in its industrial processes. The conversion of waste to energy can reduce the amount of waste by about 90%. However, the main disadvantage and minor problem of the United States is that the treatment of this oil suction pad will release dangerous emissions into the air, such as heavy metals, dioxins and acid gases, as well as fine particles. Waste from combustion also has a management process, such as ash that must be treated.
