Containment Drain System

Award winning drain protection systems for 
hydro transformers, tank farms, refuelling 
facilities, wind farms and solar farms.


IMBIBER BEADS® vs. Polypropylene

Head to head containment testing of the industry benchmark polypropylene vs.IMBIBER BEADS®.


Aged Diluted Bitumen Absorption Test

24hr aged Alberta Oil Sands Diluted Bitumen is tested with IMBIBER BEADS®.

The IMBIBER BEADS® absorb the majority of the Dilbit within the first hour eliminating the liquid phase completely.

In the test 50ml of Dilbit is added to 200ml of water then absorbed by 20ml of IMBIBER BEADS®


Diluted Bitumen Absorption Test

Fresh diluted bitumen from the Alberta Oil Sands is absorbed by IMBIBER BEADS®.

In this test 50ml of Dilbit is added to 200ml of water and then full absorbed by 20ml of IMBIBER BEADS®.

Within the first hour the liquid phase of the dilbit is essentially eliminated.


IMBIBER BEADS® - Tech Museum Award Recipient

Watch this clip to see the IMBIBER BEADS® gravity fed, containment drain system be recognized by the Tech Museum of Innovation for design and performance.

Incorporating IMBIBER BEADS®, the drain systems completely seal the leak path in case of a organic chemical spill without the need for mechanical/moving parts, electricity or human intervention.


Today Show Talks About IMBIBER BEADS®

The Today Show's Al Roker talking about the performance capabilities of IMBIBER BEADS® when responding to water based spills of hydrocarbons.


Performance Testing of Spill Response Technologies

IMBIBER BEADS® were tested head-to-head with polypropylene, one of the more well known spill response products available.

Watch the video to see the capture and containment capabilities of each technology on a 12L spill of Jet Fuel.


Hazardous & Noxious Substances (Xylene) Spill Recovery

IMBIBER BEADS® were part of a 7 year study conducted by the Maritime Disaster Prevention Center and the Japanese Coast Guard. The purpose of the study was to find the most effective technology for responding to Hazardous & Noxious Spills on the open sea.

A list of technologies were used in a series of tests with Japan's 162 most imported/exported chemicals. IMBIBER BEADS® were found to be the only product capable of fully capturing, containing and reducing the rate of vapor release.


Diesel Fuel aBsorption Using IMBIBER BEADS®

In under 30 minutes IMBIBER BEADS® fully capture and contain a Diesel Fuel spill during our test. The liquid phase of the organic chemical has been eliminated greatly reducing the likelihood of combustion or inhalation of toxic fumes by first responders.

The now imbibed liquid cannot be released from the IMBIBER BEADS® providing the best of all disposal alternatives.


Gasoline aBsorption Test Using IMBIBER BEADS®

Watch our Gasoline aBsorption test using IMBIBER BEADS® to fully imbibe the gas spill in under 5 minutes. The complete capture and containment of this gasoline is the first steps in completing the environmental loop using IMBIBER BEADS®.

The aBsorbed gasoline cannot be released from the IMBIBER BEADS® packet by any means including squeezing or cutting in half.


Crude Oil aBsorption Test With IMBIBER BEADS®

Watch IMBIBER BEADS® effortlessly fully capture and contain this Louisiana Sweet Crude Oil eliminating the liquid phase and reducing vapor release of toxic fumes lessening the risk of explosion.

Once aBsorbed the IMBIBER BEADS® will not release the crude oil if squeezed, cut in half or any other methods eliminating the risk of secondary contamination.
