OIL SPILL ON WATER
Where possible, contain any floating spilled oil, using oil booms. If the oil layer is too thick, pump or skim off as much as possible. When most of the spilled oil has been removed or the spilled oil cannot be contained, apply OIL SPILL DISPERSANT TYPE 1 undiluted.
For small spills, spray OIL SPILL DISPERSANT TYPE 1 using a portable hand spray. Allow the product to react with the oil, then disperse the mixture using water from fire hose or other mechanical means.
For large spills, use spraying equipment connected to the side of a motor boat. Ensuring the spray is directed over the spill. Spraying can also be done from an aircraft fitted with spraying equipment.
OIL SPILL ON DECKS AND BEACHES
Remove as much spilled oil as possible with an oil absorbent. Spray undiluted OIL SPILL DISPERSANT TYPE 1 over the spill and allow the product to react with the oil. Disperse the mixture with water from a fire hose. For spills on beaches and on rocks the mixture will be dispersed by natural tidal wash action.
The dosage of OIL SPILL DISPERSANT TYPE 1 depends upon the type and viscosity of the crude oil:
|Crude oil||low||thin||4 – 8%|
|Crude oil||high||thick||6 – 10%|
|Paraffins||5 – 9%|
