Albarrie Environmental Services manufactures nonwoven filtration fabrics, liquid filters, and particulate filter bags for all dust collection systems. We're also leading provider of dust collector baghouse services.
Albarrie Industrial Fabrics manufactures technical felts for a wide range of applications and industries, including high temperature and synthetic felts.
Albarrie GeoComposites manufactures, supplies and installs the revolutionary and highly successful SorbWeb™ Plus multi-layer secondary oil containment system.
The SorbWeb™ Plus transformer oil containment system is an effective and reliable passive oil leak and spill management system that provides continuous protection against oil spills and leaks associated with transformers, capacitors, storage tank facilities and other oil-filled equipment. In its passive state the system allows water to move freely through its bottom “Smart Barrier” and pass through without accumulating. However, when oil comes in contact with the “Smart Barrier” it will undergo a physical change by congealing and sealing, turning into an impermeable membrane and preventing oil from escaping the containment area.
A State of the Art Design
SorbWeb™ Plus is a gravity-based subterranean transformer oil containment system that surrounds mineral oil-filled equipment with geosynthetic materials. The system effectively traps oil from catastrophic oil spills and leaks. The critical components of the SorbWeb™ Plus transformer oil containment system include:
This green technology incorporates a state of the art design that allows for full access to the equipment, eliminates the need for sumps and pumps or oil water separators, does not require power to operate, and offers a nearly maintenance free alternative to conventional transformer oil containment approaches.
Albarrie’s innovative SorbWeb™ Plus transformer oil containment system is designed to meet both general and specific secondary containment requirements set out by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States and the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) In Canada. The transformer oil containment system will significantly reduce capital outlays, provide environmental protection and drastically lessen the economic consequences of an oil spill. No other oil containment system comes close to this level of performance and quality. Read the case studies here.
The SorbWeb™ Plus system is designed to allow water to move freely through its “Smart Barrier” without accumulating and pass all the way through and back into the native ground. At the heart of the system is a smart geotextile known as “oilmat”. In the event of a catastrophic transformer failure leading to an oil spill, the oilmat congeals and seals the oil containment system, preventing the oil from passing through.
This revolutionary multi-layer passive system of oil reactive geotextiles, makes it a remarkable leap forward in the containment of mineral oil and the proactive protection of the environment.
This secondary transformer oil containment system has proven real world success! The SorbWeb™ Plus system effectively contained 8 separate oil spills (4 of which were significant) at various sensitive sites in North America reported to us since 2014. These clients were amazed by its outstanding performance, pleased by the optimized remediation costs and impressed overall by the experience.
