SPILCARE ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES PVT LTD | CHENNAI | OIL SPILL DISPERSANTS

SPILCARE DISPERSANTS

The confidence in using the Spilcare range of dispersants - like all new generation dispersants, as a first response to oil Spills is due to the recent breakthroughs in dispersant technology, which eliminate the shortcomings of the earlier generation of dispersants.

Spilcare Dispersants are:

  1. Free of harmful petroleum hydrocarbon solvents.
  2. Free of caustic alkali.
  3. Free from Chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons.
  4. High flash point - > than 95 Deg C.

Usage - Treats oil spills at sea caused by accidents

Spilcare dispersants is used to combat oil spills caused from

  1. Oil tankers, freighters, barges, bulk carriers and other watercraft.
  2. Marine terminals and Refineries.
  3. Offshore oil platforms.

Parameters for a Safe & Efficient Dispersant Response

  1. Sufficient stock of dispersants needs to be kept to treat the most likely size of Spill. It is better to keep the stocks closest to the identified sources of the Spill.

  2. The dispersion of oil will be greatly enhanced especially if the response is rapid, before the oil starts to weather and it reaches a sensitive shoreline.

  3. It is to be checked in the test report, if the dispersant to be used has toxicity test results, which are believable and fall within the required parameters.

  4. Well-designed dispersant spray systems must be used for applying the chemical in the most appropriate manner with optimal droplet size to achieve the best dispersant application rates.

  5. The operators who would be in charge of applying/handling dispersants should be well trained.

APPLICATION OF OIL Spill DISPERSANTS

Spilcare Oil Spill Dispersants can be applied from a range of Backpack, Boat based Systems and Aerial Spray Systems.
