OIL ERASER IS UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER

SEEN BEFORE

THIS FOAM EATS OIL

Oil Eraser is a new bio-based hydrophobic oleophilic foam that can absorb 80 times its own weight in petrochemicals. 

It's durable, re-usable, and suitable for a variety of environmental and industrial applications. This seemingly impossible product could revolutionize preservation and reclamation efforts.

 

Oil Eraser Is manufactured by Foam Design Inc.

Absorbs 80X in:

Crude Oil

Heavy Oil

Silicone Oil

Light Oil

Octane

Chlorobenzene

Diesel Oil

Toluene

Chloroform

WE GO BELOW THE SURFACE

NEUTRALLY BOUYANT CAGES
TRAP UNDERWATER OIL

The most challenging part of oceanic cleanup is subsurface oil – what looks like a brown cloud, emulsified by wind and waves. Oil Eraser, suspended in plastic cages, forms a barrier, containing this hazard. Water passes through but petrochemicals are captured by the foam.

CONSERVATION OF EVERYTHING

Reclamation process saves water, oil, and foam

 

No wringing, squeezing or spindling. Oil Eraser uses a proprietary eco-friendly solvent to release and reclaim captured oil. Because this process minimizes mechanical wear, Oil Eraser can be re-used indefinitely.

You'll believe it when you see it.

Silicone Oil Filters

For Silicone Oil Separation From Water

Silicone Oil Eraser Filters

Water Warriors Inc., has developed a specialized coating for open cell polyurethane foam material which can selectively retain oil, while allowing water to flow through. The coated foam, Oil Eraser, shows hydrophobicity with the water contact angle of 144° and superoleophilicity with the oil contact angle of 0°.

This allows Silicone oil to be absorbed in the media while allowing water to pass through. 

OIL SPILL CLEAN-UP 

OIl Eraser Sock Booms are able to absorb up to 80X it's weight in petrochemicals.

Oil Eraser Sock Booms

Oil Eraser Sock Booms  can be used in oil spill clean-up situations or for ongoing oil/water separation needs in small or large bodies of water. It is approved by the EPA as an oil absorbent.

 

Because they are hydrophobic, Oil Eraser booms are capable of absorbing 4 times more than conventional clean-up booms. Can be customized to absorb specific materials/pollutants. Various sizes and materials available.

Oil Eraser is a sorbent material and consists solely of the materials listed in section 300.915(g)(1) of the NCP. 

CNC MACHINE PADS

For Cutting Fluid and Oil Separation

CNC Machine Oil Eraser Pads

Oil Eraser CNC Pads are perfect for separating cutting fluid and used oil. This provides a tremendous savings and extends the number of hours of cutting time. This also eliminates any build up which results in a foul odor. 

Emulsified and Surface Oils

Today, oil clean-up typically stops at the surface, with boons attempting to corral a sheet of oil suspended atop the water below leaving a high volume of subsurface oil–what looks like a brown cloud, emulsified by wind and waves. Further, with only 8-9% of the world’s oil pollution coming from offshore drilling leaks and spills, the problem of emulsified oil extends well beyond spill clean-up. Oil Eraser goes below the surface to address the larger need in sustaining and protecting the world’s water sources.

Our ability to coat biomedia with super-oleophilic coatings allows the media to capture free and emulsified oil in the wastewater.  This prevents the oil from floating to the surface of the bioreactor, allowing the  oil to stay immobilized on the biomedia surface, and immersed within the bioreactor liquid, wherein it can be biodegraded by the active bacteria. 

WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Oil Eraser isn't a foam. It's any foam

STORMWATER FILTERS

Stormwater Filters

The Oil Eraser Stormwater Series is specially formulated to capture pollutants in storm drains, reducing downstream impact and cutting water treatment costs. The porosity of the filter can be controlled to allow for different GPMs.

Size/specifications: Various sizes available, including custom sizes.

OIL SORBENT PADS

Clean any oily tool and machine.

Chamoil Wipes

Chamoil wipes are perfect for cleaning tools, hands, machines, and anything else that needs a quick clean-up. No water or soap required, just wipe and go.

Size/specifications: 12″ x 12″ x 1/4″

INLINE FILTERS

Oil Eraser InLine Filters

The Oil Eraser InLine Filter Series is specially formulated to capture petrochemical pollutants. The inline filters, which are packed with Oil Eraser foam, enable the oil to be removed selectively, as the flow goes through the filter. This is a simple way to remove remaining oil after oil and water separators, which usually do not remove all the oil from the water flow.

 

In addition, oil-water separators cannot remove emulsified oil from the water. In-line filters is a simple process, that can be used, and the filter, once saturated, is landfilled. 

Size/specifications: Various sizes available, including custom sizes.

The size of the filter depends on water flowrate.

The following table gives the sizes for various water flowrates:
