Cowens Ltd are one of the UK’s leading pollution control equipment manufacturers and service providers. They are the only company to manufacture their own range of patent-pending oil absorbents as well as a full range of containment booms, skimmers, oil water separators and peristaltic pumps.
Over the years they have been a key supplier to Shell, BP, Esso, BNFL, BAe, ABP, Environment Agency and many industrial customers. A growing base of construction and local council customers shows their willingness to offer dedicated products for individual markets.
Of particular interest is their oil on water detector, developed for low cost monitoring or water flows to give early warning of any unwanted oil releases. Its low capital cost makes multiple installations possible, and data logging of signals is now offered.
Their range of portable tanks now extends from the 2½, 6 and 8 tonne Instee self erecting tanks to a 600 litre low profile splash pool, used for containing decontamination wash-down from operators. All stow away extremely compactly, yet can be in use seconds after unpacking. Portable bunds are manufactured to any size and see their new bunded IBC stillage on their website.
Cowens Ltd continue to refine their range of biological clean up agents, with products now available for removing oil from concrete, brickwork, paving tiles, tarmac, gravel and soil. Some of these digest the oil away, leaving no residual chemicals to be washed away. Digesters are also available for improving interceptor performance.
The Cowens Ltd Master Pump has never been more popular, with its mix of a pumping capacity of 20m3/hour, peristaltic action, 9 metres suction head, liquids, sludges, semi-solids and run-dry capability, self priming, and an extensive range of customised drive systems to choose from. Made and serviced in their works, Cowens are fast becoming the one stop shop for pumping expertise. The pump has selectable wetted parts to suit all types of oil, chemical and floodwater applications.
Sales of the Cowens Oil Water Separator have risen again as it proves its value to a host of water decontamination industries. The design has been improved, and lead times eliminated by a decision to keep stocks of this amazing portable water treatment plant. Connected to the FlowWeir skimmer and Master Pump, a perfectly matched package is available for hire or to buy.
The Phoenix range of Polyurethane, fibreglass, rotary moulded and PVC containment booms continue to form the core of their business, and Cowens are noted for their willingness to supply customers with as little as 3 metres of PVC boom, as much as their export orders for over a 1,000 metres of off-shore boom. Development work is running at its highest level, with customer orientated designs and modifications on most orders.
Oilsorb-Ultra is the name of their renown oil absorbent media, manufactured and converted by Cowens into a full range of sorbent products. Developments include a dedicated heavy oil boom, a diesel boom and a permanent buoyancy boom. Their Oilsorb socks have even better wicking power and follow the undulations of your floor to keep leaks contained. As always, the range can be tailored to your needs, so there is no need to pick the closest product from a catalogue, you can have the exact match. Chemical absorbents are equally well covered.
For customers in the North of England and South of Scotland, Cowens Ltd can offer their own clean-up team to supply and operate this rage of equipment and consumables. Complete spill remediation is now available from the experts.
For property developers Cowens provide a comprehensive Site Investigatiopn and Land Remediation Service.
