The Sockit system in action
Adler and Allan’s Sockit system has been shortlisted for the Energy Institute’s Innovation category awards.
Used by the Environment Agency, National Grid, BP and Scottish Power, Sockit is a portable sock like device that harnesses multi-stage filtration, removing hydrocarbons and sediment to almost non-detectable levels as water is being pumped away – on average 99% removal. The system is reusable and recyclable and can be used in a wide range of de-watering applications such as oil tank bunds, trenches and boreholes without slowing the pumping process.
Group sales and marketing manager, Alan Scrafton said: “We are extremely pleased to be shortlisted and of course, hope we win! Sockit is an excellent product that has made a significant impact to the effectiveness of contaminated water clean-up, while reducing cost and logistical issues.”
EI award winners will be announced on the 14th November, at a ceremony in London.
The Sockit system is among the products available on Adler & Allan’s spill care website –
