Rail Track Matting
Rail-specific spill protection
Despite the utmost care locomotive operation and maintenance can lead to diesel spills that contaminate the environment and place companies at risk of regulatory fines.
SpillPro track matting is a product designed to catch a spill before it reaches the ground. They fit perfectly into the railway tracks and are UV treated to resist the damaging effects of the sun. The super absorbent material can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in diesel.
Where this product can be applied
- Railway repair sidings
- Railway loading and unloading
- Industrial sites with railway facilities
How this product solves problems
- Absorbs spills thus preventing soil contamination
- Will not become saturated with water
Prevention is better than the cure, which is why SpillPro track matting absorbs diesel spills before they contaminate the ground and water systems.
Track matting provides sorbency and spill protection in rail-specific applications. It can absorb 20 x its weight in diesel and is UV stabilised for 3 years.
Benefits of SpillPro's track matting
- 3 layer protection
- UV stabilised
- Super absorbent
- Chemical resistant base
3 Layer Protection
SpillPro's track matting consists of 3 layers: a strong protective top layer made of Polyethylene, a hydrophobic cotton / polypropylene mix, and a chemically resistant base.
The top layer is UV stabilised for 3-years to give protection from the harsh Australian weather conditions.
The active component of SpillPro track matting is the hydrophobic cotton / polypropylene material which can absorb 20 times its weight in diesel but rejects water.
Chemical resistant base
A polyethylene base is resistant to hydrocarbon attack, which prevents spills from migrating through the track matting and into the ground water.
- RTOR25 Oil selective railtrack three ply absorbent matting
SpillPro track matting is laid between the railway tracks under a potential diesel leak. The side panels lay on each side of the railway to provide extra protection.
Any spill from the locomotive falls onto the track matting where it passes through the top mesh layer and into the hydrophobic cotton/polypropylene material. The diesel is absorbed and remains contained by the track matting.
The chemically resistant base ensures no diesel passes into the groundwater below.
- Produced in 25 m lengths with a width of 1.5 m
- Absorbent material is 80% biodegradable
