Absorbants

AQUASET

AQUASET is a granular absorbent used to solidify aqueous solutions with low-to-moderate levels of dissolved solids. AQUASET is applied by simply adding it to the waste in a container. AQUASET is a versatile absorbent that is effective as a top-off absorbent in containers of damp or wet wastes to capture and retain moisture which otherwise, through transportation vibrations/stresses and temperature fluctuations, could become a free liquid. The end product is a firm, soft solid.

Recommended Application
  • Water, with less than 0.01M salts or organics
  • Neutralized weak acids
  • Water-miscible organics
  • Slurries – IX Resins; Filter Pre-coat
AQUASET II-G

AQUASET II-G is a versatile absorbent that is used to treat aqueous solutions with extremely high levels of dissolved solids, such as neutralized acids and bases, and organic liquids that are mixed with water and are water soluble or miscible (e.g. alcohols, benzenes, glycols, low-molecular weight ketones). AQUASET II-G is the absorbent of choice for liquids that are too salty or contain levels of organics too high for regular AQUASET. AQUASET II-G is a granular product that may be added to the liquid solution, mixed into a wet material, or placed under it so that it is available to absorb any liquid released.

Recommended Application
  • Neutralized strong acids
  • Neutralized weak acids
  • Water-miscible organics
FLUIDSAP 100

Fluid Tech’s Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) or sodium polyacrylate is used to absorb and solidify a wide variety of aqueous waste waters and sludges making it ideal for spills, or solidifying waste for transportation and disposal. Aqueous wastes solidified using FluidSAP 100 will resist biodegradation and retain liquid under pressure. stabilizing it both chemically and physically.

Recommended Application
  • Water, with less than 0.01M salts or organics
  • Neutralized strong acids
  • Neutralized weak acids
  • Water-miscible organics
Volumetric Efficiency

Volume increase of wastes treated using Fluid Tech products is typically less than 20%. Minimization of volume and weight increases results in container, transportation, and disposal savings as well as reduced generator liability.

Leach Resistance

Fluid Tech products irreversibly bind radioactive and hazardous constituents through naturally occurring ion-exchange mechanisms and form inert solids, effectively stabilizing wastes both chemically and physically. This keeps radioisotopes, heavy metals, and other hazardous constituents from leaching, ensuring both long-term stability and compliance.

Physical Integrity

Wastes solidified with Fluid Tech products maintain their physical integrity through freeze-thaw conditions and vibrational stresses encountered during transportation. This ensures that no incidental or free-standing liquids develop prior to inspection at the final disposition or storage facility.

Adaptability

Fluid Tech products are designed to be stand alone, or used in combination with one another. While each product has its own specific attributes, there is literally no combination of wastes that cannot be solidified.
