What are Universal Spill Kits?

Universal Spill Kits are a type of spill control product designed to manage and clean up leaks or spills within the workplace. Unlike standard hydrophobic oil spill kits, these universal kits can be used on various substances, including oils, fuels, and water-based liquids such as coolants and solvents. This makes them a versatile solution for workplaces that handle a range of non-hazardous fluids.

What are the benefits of Universal Spill Kits?

The primary benefit of Universal Spill Kits is their versatility. Unlike standard Hydrophobic spill kits, these universal kits can absorb water-based liquids, making them ideal for workplaces using a wide range of non-hazardous fluids. This means that instead of needing separate kits for different types of spills, you can use a single Universal Spill Kit to handle the most common types of spills.

Which Universal Spill Kits are in the range?

First Mats offers a wide range of Universal Spill Kits to suit different needs. These include the EVO Universal Spill Kits, made in the UK from recycled materials, offering a lower carbon footprint than imported products. The EVO Spill Kits are available in a range of sizes, from a smaller 20 Litre Spill Kit for Vehicles all the way up to a 240 Litre Universal Evo Spill Kit for much larger spillages. Some Universal Spill Kits are also supplied with a drip tray, which can catch drips and leaks to prevent ground contamination.

How To Choose The Right Universal Spill Kit

Choosing the right Universal Spill Kit involves considering several factors.

Spill Kit Capacity

First, you need to consider the absorbing capacity of the kit. This is usually measured in litres, and you should choose a kit that has a capacity large enough to handle the largest spill you anticipate in your workplace. For smaller workplaces or for use with vehicles, a 20-litre kit may be sufficient. For larger workplaces or areas with a higher risk of spills, you may need a kit with up to 240 litres capacity.

Fluid Compatibility

Next, consider the types of fluids in your workplace. While Universal Spill Kits are suitable for most non-hazardous liquids, including oils, fuels, coolants, and solvents, it's important to ensure that your kit is compatible with the specific fluids you use. You can consult our compatibility chart for confirmation.

Spill Kit Type

Finally, consider the physical characteristics of the kit. It should be easily accessible and simple to use in the event of a spill. Some kits come with a drip tray to catch leaks and drips, which can be a useful feature for preventing ground contamination.

Considering these factors, you can choose a Universal Spill Kit that meets your needs and helps you maintain a safe and compliant workplace.

Who are Universal Spill Kits For?

Universal Spill Kits are ideal for a variety of workplaces that handle non-hazardous fluids. This includes manufacturers, production lines, engineers, mechanics, and more. Whether you're dealing with oil, fuel, coolants, or solvents, a Universal Spill Kit can provide a quick and effective response to spills, helping to maintain safety and compliance with UK regulations.

In conclusion, Universal Spill Kits are a versatile and eco-friendly solution for containing spills in the workplace. By choosing a Universal Spill Kit, you can ensure that you're prepared for any type of spill, while also reducing your environmental impact.
