quickly and efficiently neutralizes formaldehyde solution spills.
FNC completely immobilizes concentrated solutions
( 15 – 37% ) within 3 – 10 minutes and eliminates
vapour emissions. The resulting residues are environmentally harmless
and safe to handle. VYTAC FNC is minimally hazardous
and very safe to use. FNC may also be used with
“land farming” techniques, to neutralize ground spills.
It is harmless to vegetation.
FNC is the product of choice for the neutralization of waste formaldehyde solutions in hospitals and medical laboratories.
( Please consult the “institutional applications” infor-mation sheet for further information. )
One liter of VYTAC FNC will neutralize approximately :
670 ml of formaldehyde 37%
2,500 ml of formaldehyde 10%
6,000 ml of formaldehyde 4%
quickly and efficiently absorbs and immobilizes ammonia and formaldehyde solution spills. This product has been developed to be completely compatible with the VYTAC neutralization system. FAS is simple to use. Residues are easy to dispose of. Volatility is reduced, and effective reodourant controls formaldehyde vapour emissions. When used correctly, FAS is 5 to 10 times as cost effective as conventional synthetic adsorbants. FAS is non-toxic and biodegradable. Use 20 – 40 grams per litre of spilled ammonia or formaldehyde solution.
is a concentrated neutralizer for low concentration solutions
of formaldehyde or glutaraldehyde. The proprietary blend of low
toxicity oxygenated sodium salts and activators is effective at
the removal of formaldehyde down to levels of less than 100 ppm.
The fast dissolving powder is optimized for batch and flow through
1 litre of 40,000 ppm Formaldehyde solution will be neutralized with 150 – 160 grams of VYTAC FNC LCX.
is a neutralizer complex for sodium hypochlorite solutions. This
unique formulation is specially balanced to prevent the generation
of hazardous by-products that can occur with standard neutralization
techniques. The built in indicator system shows when the neutralization
is complete, for maximum safety and economy. JCN
is efficient and user friendly. One liter of pure VYTAC
JCN will neutralize approximately:
1.7 litres of Sodium Hypochlorite 12%
3.4 litres of Sodium Hypochlorite 6%
Mercury is a highly toxic material. Its release into the atmosphere
and the water system can have a serious negative impact. The accepted
TLV for mercury vapour is .05 mg / cu. m. of air. When
mercury is spilled, hazardous vapour levels can quickly develop,
thus it is important to treat these spills promptly and effectively.
VYTAC MIS is a unique formulation that transforms
liquid mercury into an immobile solid amalgam, which almost completely
suppresses the emission of mercury vapours. MIS
once activated, works on contact. The solid granules can be easily
and safely removed with pick up tools or vacuum devices. MIS
is also effective on spills in drains and can be used to make
mercury waste safer for transport. Having MIS
on hand is a must for all industries and institutions using mercury.
(Hospitals, electrical component manufacturers, chemical producers
and distributors, educational and industrial laboratories,etc.)
It will require approx. 120 -150 grams of MIS to treat 100 grams(only 8 ml) of mercury.
When mercury is spilled, it can break up into fine particles
that disperse and infiltrate inaccessible area. These particles,
if left untreated, continuously release mercury vapours into the
air. These vapours are heavy and can build up to toxic levels.
While VYTAC MIS will treat any mercury recovered,
further cleanup may require the removal of equipment and furniture.
Shutting down an area can be inconvenient and costly.
VYTAC MVS will provide temporary protection against mercury vapours.
VYTAC MVS has been specially developed to deal with highly dispersed mercury. The chemically activated particles bind to mercury surfaces and absorb mercury vapour. MVS is ideally suited to penetrate inaccessible areas, such as cracks and crevices, where mercury particles can reside. MVS is easy to apply and it effectively suppresses the generation of vapours to well below hazardous levels. It is convenient and safe for workers to use.
is a high performance vapour suppressant and adsorbent formulated
for use on small spills of volatile liquid fuels and organic solvents.
Properly applied, VSP significantly reduces the
flammability of these materials and will allow for safe spill
cleanup and handling. VSP controls vapour emissions, minimizing
inhalation hazards. It can also absorb chlorinated organic solvents.
VSP is non-toxic, non-abrasive and easy to apply.Typically
600 -700 grams of VYTAC VSP will adsorb 1 litre
of solvent. To elevate the flash point of spills to 140 F ( 60
( for safe transport) will require 3.5 – 4.5 Kg of VSP per litre of solvent.
permits institutions to eliminate glutaraldehyde from the waste stream with a simple economical approach. Glutaraldehyde is a widely used equipment disinfectant for the health care industry. Generally available in a 2 percent solution with other additives, these products pose an environmental risk when discharged into the sewage system. GNF is also available in a ready-to-use liquid. To neutralize 1 liter of 2% glutaraldehyde solution requires 160 -200 ml of GNF solution. GNF solution is prepared by dissolving 250 grams of the GNF
