TruBind(TM) oil-absorbent cartridges remove oils and other hydrocarbons from industrial wastewater, water-soluble parts-cleaning solvents, and machine tool coolants. The cartridges chemically bind unwanted oil contamination into environmentally sound, polymer-based media. The used absorbent media can then be incinerated, used as fuel, or disposed of in accordance with local regulations. Application tests have shown that the absorbent cartridge maximizes the life of coolants and parts washing solvents.
