Solvent Handler Spill Powder
Free Flowing Granule Solvent Handler
Solvent Handler is a free flowing oxygen scavenging granule developed to control hydrocarbon spills. When this virtually dust-free granule is applied, the spilled material is solidified, vapors are eliminated, and flammability risk is reduced. The resulting dry solid granules can easily be swept up, leaving evidence of the spilled liquid.
Solvent Handler is very effective in controlling:
- Flammable Liquids
- Hydraulic Oils
- Brake Oils
- Chlorinated Solvents
- Motor Oils
- Residual flammable liquids or sludge left in containers or storage tanks
- Consult SDS for the spilled material to become familiar with its chemical properties and safety and health requirements.
- Select and wear proper personal protective equipment for the spilled chemical.
- Evacuate area as necessary to ensure safety of personnel.
- Eliminate all sources of ignition and ensure that there is adequate ventilation available before applying product.
- Apply Solvent Handler to spill from the upwind side around its perimeter to dike the liquid, working from the outside of the spill toward the center. Completely blanket the spill, eliminating all wet areas.
- Agitate product on the spill area with non-sparking paddle or scrapper, adding additional Solvent Handler as needed to eliminate all wet areas.
- Check vapor elimination, using a vapor detection device.
- Add additional Solvent Handler product until all vapor is eliminated.
- Dispose of neutralized waste in accordance with Federal, State, and Local environmental regulations.
NOTE: Solvent Handler DOES NOT reduce toxicity. When this virtually dust-free granule is applied, the spilled material is solidified, vapors are eliminated, and flammability risk is reduced. If spilled material is toxic, the treated waste remains toxic and should be treated accordingly.
