Little leaks in plant machines have been with us since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Many of these leaks are hard for you to find. And with heavy production schedules and tight maintenance budgets, you can’t always afford to shut down just to fix a leak.
So what can you do? You have a guy grab a bag of dirty clay chips and throw them around the leak. While he’s at it, he pitches a few more scoops down for good measure. There you go, at least no one will fall on an oil slick until next time you pull PM on that machine.
But the problem is just beginning. When you throw all that clay around, the grit and dust goes everywhere. It’s no one’s fault, but the loose chips get into the moving parts on your machines and all over your finished product. Dirt and oil may mix just fine . . . but dirt and machines don’t. Stop and think about it for a second. Would you lift the hood of your care and throw a shovel of clay on the engine? Or how about pulling a wheel and rubbing dirt all over the brake lining. Of course you wouldn’t, you’d ruin everything real quick.
Fortunately, there’s a better choice than using damaging clay. "Oil-Zorb" - - - it’s a sock filled with a highly absorbent material and it conforms to practically any machine shape, staying neatly tucked at the base of your equipment.
Each 40 inch "Oil-Zorb" will absorb nearly 2 quarts of fluid. And best of all, it does this absorbing with no effort on your part. You don’t have to shovel it, sweep it, or break your back moving it around. Just lay it in place near the source of a leak and watch it go to work. "Oil-Zorb" was designed to eliminate the dust and grit that you get with clay. Since the absorbent is contained in a tightly-knit sock, the changes for loose dirt flying around are next to nothing.
Insure your machines against premature death. Get a clean and dry shop floor without killing your equipment with dirt.
