The Biodegradable BioSok Bilge Sock - Not your Fathers Bilge Sock

The Biodegradable BioSok™ Bilge Sock - Not your Fathers Bilge Sock

Prevent Accidental Leaks of Oil and Gas from Boat Bilges with the Biodegradable BioSok™ Bilge Sock


Despite boaters’ best efforts, motor oils, gasoline, and diesel fuel can often be found leaking in the bilge of personal pleasure craft. The accidental release of these hydrocarbons into waterways and other marine environments when the bilge is pumped is not only against the law, it is extremely hazardous to marine plants and animals.  

To combat the spilled oil, boaters have been deploying common bilge socks filled with manufactured absorbent materials that absorb the oils from the bilge water. While these socks are adequate at removing the oils from the bilge water, they do not actively remediate the spill and require special disposal at the end of their useful life.

BioSok™ is not your common bilge sock. Developed with technology pioneered by NASA, BioSok™ works to both absorb and remediated the spilled oil in the bilge. The active ingredient in BioSok™, PRP™ Powder, attracts naturally occurring microorganisms that literally eat the spilled oil, leaving water and CO2 as the byproduct. And, the absorbent material in BioSok™, a proprietary non-toxic, biodegradable blend of wax, requires no special disposal when spent. 

Interested in selling BioSok™ at your local marina or boaters club, contact sales@kelleyindustrial.com for wholesale pricing.

The Hard Facts about Hardfacing

What is Hardfacing? Hardfacing is a metalworking process of applying tougher metals, high-temperature alloys, ceramics and other overlays to base metals to enhance standard wear, corrosion, hardness and other physical and chemical characteristics of the base metal. When to Hardface? Hardfacing can be applied at during all life-cycles of a fabricated or machines part. Commonly, hardfacing is applied On new parts to increase wear On older, worn-down surface back to tolerance On functional equipment to extend the life of fabricated components as part of maintenance program How is the Hardfacing applied? There are a variety of methods to apply hardfacing. No one method is superior to others, rather the method is recommended based on the intended purpose of the hardfacing. Some of the more common welding methods include: Shield Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) Oxyfuel Welding (OFW) Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) Electrical Welding (ESW) P

Desludging the Desalter, a West Penetone Citrikleen HD Story

Desludging the Desalter, a West Penetone Citrikleen HD Story Desalters are notoriously dirty, difficult to clean systems within any refinery. With time and money on the line, West Penetone exceeded expectations at a local Midwest refinery, completing the turnaround ahead of schedule and under budget. Project Overview Client: Midwest Petrochemical Refinery Vessels to Clean: One, Desalter Vessel Size: 30,000 gallons  Last Cleaning: 2005 Previous Cleaning: Used competitor product which yielded poor results, with sludge over top of walkway Application and Treatment Parameters First Phase: Steam Purge to ready vessel Cleaning Agent(s): Citrikleen HD (900 gallons) , Clean Add II (1000 gallons) Allotted Turnaround Time: 48 hours Results Steam purge was not available due to unexpected limitations on site Total Time to Clean: 33 hours Readings after Cleaning: 0 LEL, 0 Benzene, 0 H2S Sludge Levels: Well below walkway Despite the lack of steam, and adequat

Cleaner, More Efficient Gas Turbines Start with Citrikleen and Citrkleen HD

Cleaner, More Efficient Gas Turbines Start with Citrikleen and Citrkleen HD As natural gas becomes a more cost-effective fuel to power America’s power needs, proper maintenance of gas turbines and their compressors is more critical than ever to ensure efficient, effective, profitable, and uninterrupted power production. The Problem During the general operation of gas turbines, large quantities of air and other particulates pass through the compressors. While this air is filtered, small quantities of dust, aerosols, and water pass through the filters and end up as deposits on the blades. Over time, these deposits decrease the air flow of the compressor resulting in decreased performance and output of the gas turbines. The Solution Citrikleen and Citrikleen HD are concentrated, biodegradable heavy-duty solvents trusted by heavy industry, aerospace, refineries/petrochemical plants and the military to degrease their hardest to clean equipment.
