Mine site spills require a fast and effective response.

SpillPro on 18 January 2017

What are common spill products for mining sites?

When it comes to mine site spills, a fast and effective response is essential.

Mining sites commonly experience hydraulic oil spills from vehicles and machinery. Left unattended hydrocarbons can reach water dams. They can also pollute industrial areas and nearby environments.

This is why, at SpillPro, we have developed for the mining industry a range of hydrocarbon specific spill kits. Ideal for combating hydrocarbon spills, they are tailored to match the requirements of the mining industry.

We also provide a hydrocarbon absorbent roll which can be used when servicing mining equipment. The roll is simply placed underneath the vehicle as a preventative in case oil is lost during servicing.
