A spill kit is a contained unit used for the containment, blocking and clean-up of Hazmat spillages.

The type of spill kit that gets used depends on the Hazmat product spilt.

Typically spill kits are classified in the following categories:

  • Oils, Fuels, Petroleum based – A Hydro Carbon (absorbs oil and repels water)  or Oil Spill kit
  • Oils and non-aggressive chemicals – A universal Spill kit
  • Aggressive chemicals & bases – Chemical or Hazmat Spill kit
  • Biological –Bodily Fluids – Biological Waste, Blood, Plasma, Urine

Absolutely! AfriSupply offers a wide variety of spill kits and consumables to suit every industry type, for example portable PVC spill kits in varying sizes for trucks or vehicles, 240L Wheelie bin spill kits for sites, warehouses, forecourts (to name a few), Lab Spill kits, Glass Spill Kits, Biological Spill kits and we are able to customise your requirements.

This depends largely on where the spill kit will be used and how large the spillage is.

There is a common misconception that truck or tanker spill kits are to be used for the actual spill clean-up. Naturally this is impossible as most tankers or trucks carry tons or large volumes of hazmat materials. The key objective of truck/tanker spill kits is firstly to enable the clean –up of day to day spillages, and most importantly in the event of a major spillage, truck/tanker spill kits enable your drivers to quickly respond to containment and blocking off of Hazmat spillages into storm water drains and the containment of a run- away spillages whilst awaiting for your response team from arriving. This greatly reduces the risk, the cost and the impact to both the environment and to the public.

Post purchasing your complete spill kit it is vitally important to ensure that your spill kit is always stocked and ready in the event of a spillage. AfriSupply provides for all types of refills and Spill Consumables.

The SANS 1186 stipulates all transporters and manufacturers, suppliers and industry working with a Hazmat product to ensure that every proactive measure is taken to ensure firstly the prevention, active management and in the event of a spillage the re-active and proper management of spillages.

AfriSupply specialises in a wide variety of Polyethylene spill containment products. Our Spill decks are ideal for the containment and portable bunding of small 25L containers through to the larger 210L drums and IBC tanks.
