Fentex has recently consolidated its range of spill tray and absorption materials to achieve compliance with the national Pollution Prevention Guidelines (PPG26). Individuals, private businesses and both large or small companies and commercial organisations are required to meet the pollution recommendations covered by the PPG26 guidelines as relevant to Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales.

Current legislation and recommended good practice requires that provision should be made for a spill tray capacity being provided to accommodate 25% of the total fluid volume of any stored primary container(s).

Fentex’s spill trays help maintain a clean, safe work area environment while preventing pollution or contamination of land, surface waters and groundwater from the run-off of inks, oils, solvents and a wide range of potentially harmful or noxious fluids. There are many applications for spill control equipment, but typical industry sectors that would benefit include motor trade and transport, printing, plastic production and the food industry, together with any areas where hydraulically powered machinery or plant are in use.

In general workshop conditions, spill trays can be used to provide a contained cleaning/dispensing area and can also deal with machinery leaks or the storage of oil contaminated components during breakdowns or servicing of machinery. They help to reduce floor contamination leading to better, safer working conditions, while leaked fluids that would have been lost can be recovered for recycling or re-use.
