C.I.Agent Solutions® provided responsible, cost-effective solutions for hydrocarbon management at the UK Power Networks pole storage unit (Stone Street, Kent) in November 2010. UK Power Networks required a pollution prevention solution for its wooden pole stores in place of a more
CIAgent Solutions offers a range of polymer-based, hydrocarbon pollution control products sold under the trade name of C.I.Agent®. C.I.Agent is a dry granular material made up of seven separate non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, non-hazardous polymers designed to solidify and immobilise hydrocarbons within minutes of contact.
Oil spill secondary containment systems
Over the last decade, over 8,000 C.I.Agent Barrier Boom secondary containment systems have been installed in the electrical utility industry. The Barrier Boom is backed by a £2.5m liability insurance policy for all installations.
C.I.Agent Barrier Boom is a revolutionary oil spill secondary containment system that will allow unimpeded flow of water during rainfall events, but will become an impermeable layer in the event of oil loss.
Other applications for oil spill secondary containment with C.I.Agent Barrier Boom include pad-mounted transformers, oil-filled equipment storage areas, bulk fuel and oil storage areas – all without the use of concrete walls, sump pumps, and oil-water separator systems.
Loose granules for oil spills
Our flagship product C.I.Agent instantly solidifies hydrocarbons upon contact, turning them into a non-toxic, non-hazardous mass that floats on water. The rubber-like mass can then easily be disposed of or reused in various industrial applications. C.I.Agent loose granules can be effectively used in oil spill prevention and clean-up.
Filtration fabric for oil removal
C.I.Agent Agent-X is a new generation of smart textiles using embedded technology. Agent-X is made of two layers of a geo-textile with C.I.Agent polymers embedded between the layers. This hybrid creates a filtration fabric that encapsulates hydrocarbons and forces them to unsaturated areas of the fabric.
Agent-X is highly efficient in removing small suspended oil droplets found in mechanical emulsions, making it ideal for oil sheen removal and for final polishing of effluent waters.
Filtration system for water discharge operations
The C.I.Agent EVAC Filtration System uses state-of-the-art filtration technology to remove suspended solids and light sheen from water discharge operations in vaults, manholes, elevator shafts, bilges, tanks and more. Its unique four-layer system adsorbs hydrocarbons, removes large and fine sediment, and polishes the water.
The Pump-It Tube Silt Sack removes 92% sediment when dewatering collection ponds, sumps and more. It attaches easily to pipes and hoses with a Velcro® strip (included). A pipe clamp or heavy zip tie can also be used (not included).
Hydrocarbon removal filters
C.I.Agent Hydrocarbon Flow Filter (HFF) removes hydrocarbons from water to a non-detectable level. The HFF is constructed from a non-woven geotextile fabric in combination with C.I.Agent, a proprietary blend of USDA food-grade polymers.
Hydrocarbon detection strips
C.I.Agent hydrocarbon detection strips can quickly and accurately determine the presence of hydrocarbons in water. When the hydrocarbon detection strip is introduced into a potential hydrocarbon situation, the light blue strip will turn a darker blue if hydrocarbons are present.
Hydrocarbon spill containment
C.I.Agent Quick Deployment Boom (QDB) is a spill containment device for hydrocarbon spills on both land and water. The 1.75in QDB is filled with C.I.Agent, a proprietary blend of USDA food-grade polymers, which encapsulate and solidify hydrocarbons upon contact.
Oil spill rapid response system
C.I.Agent rapid response systems are easy-to-use and easy-to-store packages containing a variety of spill response materials and equipment specifically designed to meet your hazmat needs. C.I.Agent is listed on EPA’s National Contingency Plan Product Schedule.
Sheen and hydrocarbon collection
C.I.Agent Sheen Boom is a device especially designed to collect sheen and hydrocarbons from the surface of water where there are issues with currents and/or wind. The Sheen Boom is constructed from a special high-tensile screen that allows hydrocarbons to enter into the boom and be solidified by a proprietary blend of large and small polymers.
Polyvinyl blanket for hydrocarbon filtration
The C.I.Agent polyvinyl blanket for hydrocarbon filtration in sandy or undetermined subsoils, allows storm water to flow through the blanket windows and C.I.Agent side-wall booms while removing hydrocarbon from the storm water. In the event of a large spill, the side walls completely solidify, keeping the emulsified hydrocarbon from leaching out.
Hydrocarbon spill response bags
The C.I.Agent spill response bag is designed as a ‘rapid spill response system’ for hydrocarbon spills on both land and water. The spill response bag contains several different C.I.Agent polymer devices – a C.I.Agent Quick Deployment Boom, C.I.Agent granules, and C.I.Agent bilge bags - all in a nylon bag that can easily be stored in cars, trucks and emergency vehicles.
