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 secondary 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 hydrocarbons come in contact with the “Smart Barrier” it will undergo a physical change by congealing and sealing, turning into an impermeable membrane and thus preventing hydrocarbons from escaping the containment area.
A State of the Art Design
SorbWeb™ Plus is a gravity-based subterranean secondary oil containment system that surrounds oil-filled equipment with geosynthetic materials. The system effectively traps oil from catastrophic oil spills and leaks. The SorbWeb™ Plus secondary oil containment system critical components include:
This green technology incorporates a state of the art design that allows for driveability, eliminates the need for sumps and pumps or oil water separators, does not require power to operate, and offers a virtually maintenance free alternative to conventional spill containment approaches.
Albarrie’s innovative SorbWeb™ Plus 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 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 and its layers are designed to allow water to move freely through its “Smart Barrier” without accumulating and pass all the way through back into the native ground. At the heart of the system is a smart geotextile known as “oilmat”. In the event of a catastrophic equipment 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 system of interlocking oil reactive geotextile fabrics makes this system a truly remarkable leap forward in the containment of hydrocarbons and the proactive protection of the environment.
This secondary oil containment system has proven real world success! The SorbWeb™ Plus system effectively contained 5 separate oil spills (2 of which were significant) at various sensitive sites in North America reported to us within 2014/2015. These clients were amazed by its outstanding performance, pleased by the optimized remediation costs and impressed overall by the experience.
