Ultra-X-Tex Rolled Fabric - 5'W x 250'L
Allows large volumes of water to pass through while sorbing liquid hydrocarbons, including petroleum, animal and vegetable oils. Cost effective absorbs an average of 20 times its own weight of liquid hydrocarbons. Great for use in oil/water separators, stormwater and wastewater filtration systems and water "polishing" applications. Ultra-X-Tex in fabricated forms can help meet NPDES and TMDL requirements. When used as a filter medium, water passes freely, while adsorption of target hydrocarbons begins on contact. Extremely efficient due to the enormous lipophilic surface area of the altered fibers. Works well as a fibrous supporting matrix for other water conditioning materials such as selective zeolites, activated carbon, zero-valent iron filings, etc. Ultra-X-Tex can be "conditioned" to remove specific chemical compounds. Approximately 85-90% of sorbed oils can be reclaimed from Ultra-X-Tex and the media reused. In bench-scale testing, Ultra-X-Tex has shown promising results in filtering out emulsified oils and hydrocarbons out of a water stream. This characteristic creates opportunities for the use of Ultra-X-Tex in oil/water separation applications and other hydrocarbon filter projects. Ultra-X-Tex is environmentally benign and user-friendly. It does not leach harmful substances into the environment and when incinerated produces minimal residue or ash.
