A-510 Oil Spill Dispersant
A-510 Oil Spill Dispersant (Seacare OSD)
A-510 is an internationally approved, low toxicity hydrocarbon based emulsifier, for the dispersal of oil spills on water at sea and hard surfaces on land such as harbours, beaches, shoreline or from decks, oil rig platforms and dock areas.
A-510 has been tested and approved as an effective low toxicity oil dispersant, in accordance with the prevention of pollution of the sea regulations. It is non-toxic and meets the IMO regulations.
A-510 is specially designed to counter specific problems of oil spillage on water. The spillage causes sea pollution and contamination to coastal lines, sides of marine vessels, recreational areas, severe loss to aquatic life, damages to marine food and exposing marine properties to fire hazards.
A-510 contains extra-strong super emulsifying agent and solvent carriers to break up specially tough oil spills which cannot be dispersed by ordinary dispersants.
A-510 is also suitable for tank cleaning and as a general solvent degreaser.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
1. OIL SPILL AT SEA
A-510 should be sprayed neatly on the surfaces of the spilled oil by using low volume and low pressure. Avoid spraying against the direction of wind. The treated surface should then be agitated with a high pressure stream of water. For oil spillage treated from a launch or motor boat, the contaminated area can be agitated by running the boat through it several times.
2. SPILLED OIL ON BEACHES AND OFF-SHORE LINE
Apply A-510 neatly by spraying over spilled areas. Allow sufficient time for the dispersant to penetrate, followed by washing the beach or rocks.
3. OIL SPILL ON SHIP
Prior to applying A-510, remove as much oil as possible. Spray A-510 on the contaminated surface and allow it to work for a few minutes. Disperse the mixture with water under pressure.
4. OTHER SHIPBOARD CLEANING
A-510 can be used as a general cleaner/degreaser for the removal of greases and oil from engine parts, heat exchangers, exhaust stains and light carbon deposits from all hard surfaces. A-510 can also be used for general tank cleaning using spray, injection or circulation methods.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
A-510 is recommended for use in harbours and shipyards, ship cleaning companies, marine vessels, oil refinery terminals etc.
