What is a super absorber? That is any product that can absorb liquids and hold them in excess of 15 times its own weight.
ENVIRO-BOND 300 is truly a super absorber, since it can absorb aqueous liquids up to 300 times its weight. Once the liquid is absorbed, it cannot be pressed out. ENVIRO-BOND is also environmentally safe. None of its components require listing with EPA.
ENVIRO-BOND 300 / Stabilization
|This reserve pit was built just ½ its usual size because the drilling was done using ENVIRO-BOND 100 super flocculent. The drilling pit contains 6,700 feet of hole, and the solids generated were 50% average by volume. The absorbing polymers were placed to form a seal, absorb, and bond with any water that would otherwise leak from the generated waste solids. ENVIRO-BOND polymer can also be mixed with the drill solids.
||Within one month after the pit was stabilized and covered, a lease road was constructed completely over the top of the reserve pit. Only 950 pounds of ENVIRO-BOND super absorbing polymer was used to perform the very difficult task. The total result was a much reduced volume, and stabilized with an environmentally safe, long lasting material. As you can see, volumes have decreased and stabilization was achieved without increasing the volume.
|When you plan your next well and address your solids management plan, we would like you to consider the ENVIRO-BOND products. ENVIRO-BOND 100 Series and ENVIRO-BOND 300 Series polymers, coupled together, make a good team.
ENVIRO-BOND 300 (AQUEOUS SOLUTION) SERIES POLYMERS
The ENVIRO-BOND 300 Series of Aqueous Solution polymers encapsulate
aqueous solutions such as water, acids, caustics, bases, bodily fluids
and water soluble hydrocarbons such as engine coolant (glycol) and methanol.
Encapsulation, stabilization, immobilization and solidification begin immediately
upon contact between the polymer and the aqueous solution - fast acting
Little or no mixing is required - simple application of the polymer to
the surface of the spill is usually adequate with the polymers having a
typical absorption rate of up to 300 times their own weight in neutral
ENVIRO-BOND polymers have the ability to solidify and stabilize hazardous
liquids, with very small amounts of polymer and render them effectively
and cost efficiently safe for disposal.
The polymers will absorb heavy metals and other dissolved solids that may
be in liquid.
The polymers have an indefinite shelf life and have a microbiological half
life in excess of 400 years.
The polymers will not absorb any free hydrocarbons, but, will absorb virtually
all hydrocarbons that are dissolved in a water phase.
The polymers are heavier than water and will sink to absorb from the bottom
While not soluble in any solution, the polymers will absorb any solution
The absorbed liquid/s will not release as a liquid, but, will only release
the water portion of the absorbed liquid at various rates of evaporation
based upon ambient temperature and humidity.
This reduction of generated mass through evaporation yields a tremendous
reduction in the amount of waste to be disposed of, resulting in a significant
reduction of disposal costs.
The polymers are extremely effective in mixing with all types of sludge's
for the stabilization of liquids contained within the sludge.
The aqueous polymers will not coat out or become ineffective in the presence
of hydrocarbons and will break oil and water emulsions by absorbing the
water phase and leaving the hydrocarbons free.
ENVIRO-BOND 300 Series polymers are available in both Anionic and
Cationic formulations, each having a different capacity for absorption
of either acids or base liquids. The Anionic is recommended for use
with high pH solutions and the Cationic is recommended for use with low
pH solutions, however, either the A or C 300 polymers will work effectively
with either high or low pH solutions if immediate time constraints are
not a consideration.
The Cationic polymers will absorb concentrated acids without any violent
heat of reaction and with only a small amount of off-gassing. This
renders the mass stable from ion exchange and safe for handling.
The same is true of the Anionic polymers with base liquids.
Polymer particle sizes can be provided in either coarse grain for large
spills or fine grain for small spills with a particle range from 0.5mm
to 1mm being the standard shipment size.
Liquid capacity of the 300 polymers is based on fresh water loading and
ratios may vary based on waste product chemistry.
