Seddons launches new pollution range

The Green Rhino range features filtration systems designed for use by the utilities sector when pumping and dewatering trenches, manholes, bunds and excavations. Green Rhino filters remove contaminants that could otherwise pollute navigable water or drainage systems.

The filters range extends from the budget sediment filter, an entry level filter for removing sediment on smaller jobs, to the oil and sediment filter, a multiple use filter which retains 20kg of sediment, 2.5 litres of oil and removes sediment and oil sheen down to 100 microns.

The Green Rhino range also incorporates polymer technology which changes hydrocarbons such as oil, diesel and petrol into a rubber-like solid within minutes, preventing the release of contaminated water or hazardous fluids into the workplace or local environment.

Avoiding contamination

It also includes the EnviroPad spill containment, which has been designed to replace traditional drip trays and absorbent products. It can ‘locks in’ hydrocarbons, solidifying and immobilising hazardous fluids into a dry, solid mass, helping organisations to avoid prosecution and heavy environmental fines for contaminated ground water.The EnviroPad is available in three sizes and large items of plant can be easily wheeled or placed onto it. It is lightweight and can be easily rolled and stored away when not in use.

The Green Rhino range also includes spill kits of various capacities from 15 litres–220 litres which enable emergency response to oil, chemical and hazardous fluid spills in the working environment.

“We’ve introduced  the Green Rhino range following 18 months of consultation and testing with Capture Green Environmental Solutions,” said Neil Beswick, Business Development Director at Seddons (Plant & Engineers) Ltd. “Companies can be fined tens of thousands of pounds for water pollution or other pollution incidents and Green Rhino products provide organisations with a viable means of complying with stringent environmental legislation without running the risk of financial penalties being imposed.”
