Mercury Regulator Kit


Somerset, NJ (November 1, 2001) Sorbent Products Company (SPC) is introducing the Mercury Regulator Kit to their line of products. SPC has developed this unique kit containing everything
needed to perform this clean up safely.

Many utilities are involved in replacing older gas regulators inside homes, schools and laboratories around the country. Sometimes during the replacement mercury from inside the older
gas regulator attached to the meter spills on the floor.

After a spill, tiny droplets of mercury, which is a silvery-white liquid, can become trapped in cracks, crevices, fabrics and rugs. It can continue to release mercury vapors for years. Preventing continued exposure requires a thorough clean up of every spill of mercury. If not properly recycled, mercury may not be effectively removed from devices such as the thermometers,
switches, relays and other instrumentation. SPC's Mercury Regulator Kit has been specifically designed to meet these needs.

The kit was designed with the help of one of the country's largest public utilities. It contains: Mercury Spill Pads, gloves, booties, various plugs & screws to fit the pipelines, and a variety of bags and a drum liner to seal the mercury filled regulator for transport.

Said SPC President, Mike Hobin, "Our message is, don't go to a home or business to do this sort of repair without an SPC Mercury Regulator Kit. If prevention was ever 90% of the cure, this is that moment. Decontaminating a residence or workplace wili creates adverse scrutiny of the kind a utility never wants to deal with. Show your customers that you thought ahead and were
prepared."
