POLYCHEM DISPERSIT SPC 1000
patent #6,261,463

Product Specifications

DESCRIPTION
 

Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 is an EPA reviewed, NCP listed water based dispersant to be used on oil discharges or oil spills in accordance with the procedures set forth by the U.S. Coast Guard and other governmental agencies. Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 has been included in the NCP Product Schedule for use as a dispersant for oil spills.

Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 is a unique aqueous composition with highly effective emulsifiers, dispersants and a water-soluble coupling solvent. Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 contains no petroleum solvents. Independent testing (J L Ross Env. Ltd.) confirmed that Dispersit has significant effectiveness in fresh and brackish water. Dispersit is particularly well suited for application via a vessel based education system because it maintains effectiveness when diluted with water unlike petroleum based products.

Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 has an overall effectiveness† of 73%, almost 50% better than the EPA requirement and the dominant product and has considerably less aquatic toxicity†† than the dominant petroleum based dispersant. Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 contains no hazardous material and hence is user-friendly and environmentally safe.

LIGHT DUTY
DISPERSING
  A dispersant to oil ratio of 1 part Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 to 50 parts of crude oil or an application rate of 2-6 gallons (7.6 liters -8.1 liters) per ton of oil is recommended.
   
HEAVY DUTY
DISPERSING
  A dispersant to oil ratio of 1:10 to 1:20 or about 45-60 gallons (170-227 liters) dispersant per ton of oil is recommended. This rate is dependent on the type of the spill, weathering, temperature and thickness of the slick. Spray the dispersant on the oil slick by any conventional method: e.g., spray boom with pressure nozzle or rotating atomizers mounted on helicopters or airplanes. A timely application ensures the highest degree of performance.
Polychem Dispersit SPC 1000 may be used for both fresh and sea water.
The dispersant is also effective in minimizing the volatile emissions from the oil spill.
