Loose Absorbents

Need to clean up liquids from various types of surfaces, including small cracks and crevices? Absorbent loose granules are perfect for getting the last of a spill from hard-to-reach places where other absorbents can’t. Use them to remove the slippery sheen residue from spill clean-up, so there are no dangerously sticky floors and less risk of slips and falls. Need to respond to different types of spills? Select granules designed for different liquids, such as Oil Absorbent Granules. With our absorbent granules, you can be sure your spill clean-up is complete.

See why our loose absorbents are ideal as an alternative to clay. Loose granules can absorb up to three times more liquid with ease. Plus, loose absorbents are easier and more cost-effective to store, move and dispose of. And because our loose absorbent products are silica-free, there’s no dust hazard to worry about. You can even choose loose absorbents made from post-consumer recycled content to meet your “green” policy.

A silica-free loose absorbent that combines heavier consistency with high absorbency to pull industrial liquids from your floor.

Absorbent granules are ideal for when absorbent mats, socks and pillows don’t fit the bill. See if you need to add spill absorbent granules to your spill control solution:

FAQ about our Loose Absorbents

What are absorbent loose granules?

Spill absorbent granules can get into hard-to-reach places where other absorbents can’t. Absorbent granules are not in a structured form, like a mat, pillow, pad, sock or boom, so they are perfect for small and awkward spots. Think of them as absorbent kitty litter – you can use as few or as many of the absorbent loose granules as the job requires.

What can I absorb with loose granules?

As with other absorbent products, it depends which granular absorbent you choose. Some spill absorbent granules are designed to absorb and retain coolants, oils, water and solvents, while oil soak up granules are designed specifically to absorb oils.

What are the advantages of absorbent loose granules?

There are lots of benefits to using absorbent loose granules as a spill solution. They get into the small spaces that other absorbent products can’t, such as cracks and crevices around and under machinery. This makes them the ideal final step for spill clean-up. You can also use absorbent loose granules to remove the slippery sheen residue from spill clean-up, meaning you avoid dangerously sticky floors. And oil absorbing granules are perfect in the event of an oil leak.

Can I use absorbent granules outdoors?

It depends. You need to choose granules with a heavy consistency which don’t blow around when used outdoors.

Can I buy “green” absorbent granules?

Yes. Some oil absorbent granule suppliers use a by-product of the paper-making process, which is 100% post-consumer recycled content. This helps you tick the boxes of your company’s green policy.

Are absorbent granules safe for use around employees?

Our absorbent loose granules are silica-free, which means they don’t pose the health hazards associated with breathing in clay dust. Look for products made from perlite and specially formulated to minimise dust. If you are unsure, ask our expert team for advice.
