Absorbent refers to the ability of a substance to take in or soak up another substance, such as a liquid or gas. This property is often used in various industrial and consumer products, including paper towels, diapers, and oil spills cleanup materials. In this article, we will explore the different types of absorbents, their uses and applications, and the factors that affect their absorbency.

lTypes of absorbents: There are several types of absorbents, including natural absorbents, such as cellulose fibers found in paper products, and synthetic absorbents, such as polypropylene found in many consumer products. Another classification is based on the substance that is being absorbed: there are liquid absorbents, gas absorbents, and oil absorbents. Each type of absorbent is designed to be most effective in absorbing a specific substance.

lUses and applications: Absorbents have a wide range of uses and applications, including industrial, commercial, and consumer products. In industry, absorbents are used in the manufacturing process to clean up spills, leaks, and other types of accidents. In commercial settings, absorbents are used to clean up spills in shops, warehouses, and other facilities. Consumer products that utilize absorbents include diapers, sanitary napkins, paper towels, and cleaning products.

lFactors that affect absorbency: There are several factors that affect the absorbency of a substance, including the type and size of the absorbent particles, the temperature and humidity of the environment, and the amount of pressure applied to the absorbent. For example, synthetic absorbents are typically more absorbent than natural absorbents, but they may not be as effective in extreme temperatures. Additionally, the size of the absorbent particles also plays a role in its absorbency, with smaller particles generally being more absorbent than larger ones.

lSynthetic absorbents in oil spills: Synthetic absorbents, such as polypropylene, have been developed specifically for oil spills clean up. These materials have a high affinity for hydrocarbons, which makes them very effective at absorbing oil and other petroleum-based liquids. They are also resistant to chemicals and temperature, which allows them to be used in a wide range of environments, including marine and offshore.

lConclusion: Absorbents are materials that have the ability to take in or soak up another substance, such as a liquid or gas. They come in various forms, such as natural and synthetic, and are designed for a specific substance like liquid or oil. Absorbents have a wide range of uses and applications, including industrial, commercial, and consumer products, and the absorbency can be affected by the temperature and humidity, pressure and the size of the particles.

The most widely used absorbent is the non-woven oil-absorbent cotton formed by pp Non woven oil absorbent cotton.The manufacturing process of polypropylene (PP) adsorption cotton is to first obtain melt blown polypropylene non-woven fabric, and then make various forms of adsorption cotton sheets, adsorption pillows, adsorption strips, adsorption ropes, and oil absorption fences. The technological process of polypropylene melt blown fiber and non-woven fabric is: polypropylene particle feeding → melt extrusion → fiber formation → fiber cooling → netting on spinning board → reinforcement and cloth forming. Oil absorbent cotton is also called absorbent cotton and industrial absorbent cotton. Sometimes people simply call it oil absorbent cotton. According to the characteristics of absorbent materials, it is divided into oil absorbent cotton, chemical absorbent cotton (also known as chemical absorbent cotton, absorbent cotton) and general-purpose absorbent cotton. Oil absorbent cotton can control and adsorb petroleum hydrocarbons, various acids (including hydrofluoric acid), alkaline dangerous chemicals, non corrosive liquids and large-scale oil spills at sea. Adsorption cotton is the most commonly used item for disposal of spills after oil and chemical spills. oil absorbent roll is one of the product forms of oil absorbent cotton, which is faster and more economical to use.

how to deal with the used oil absorbent roll?

After absorbing oil, the felt can extrude the oil, reuse it, and finally treat it with combustion method. The recycled linoleum should be incinerated in an incinerator in time to prevent secondary pollution.

What is the principle of oil absorbent roll?

oil absorbing roll is another product form of oil absorbent cotton, which uses the principle of chemical adsorption. Oil absorbent cotton is made with lipophilic groups, so it has a certain adsorption on oily substances, which is a bit similar to exchange resin.

Characteristics of oil absorbent roll.

lthe specific gravity of oil absorbing roll is light, and it can float on the water surface. Even if the oil absorption is saturated, it will not sink to the bottom, which is conducive to the protection of the sea environment

loil absorber roll is made of non cotton material, which is breathable, porous, has strong oil absorption performance, poor water absorption capacity, and can drain water during oil absorption.

lthe oil absorb roll will not leak after absorbing oil stains, and has good oil retention and can be used repeatedly.

loil sorbent roll is acid and alkali resistant, chemical corrosion resistant, and there is no secondary pollution after combustion treatment.

Basic performance of oil absorbent roll.

lLarge oil absorption (10 to 20 times of self weight).

loil absorbent roll can be suspended, suitable for industry or sea Used on.

lAfter absorbing the leaked liquid, it can be reused after extrusion, saving money.

loil absorbent roll is not easy to have chemical reaction (chemical resistance).

loil absorbent roll will not decompose or deteriorate, is safe and environmentally friendly, does not support combustion, does not rot or mildew.

loil absorb roll can be incinerated or mixed with fuel, and only 0.02% of ash is incinerated at high temperature.

loil sorbent roll does not contain dust and abrasive particles, which will not affect the normal operation of the equipment and damage expensive equipment.
