There are many different types of wellhead stuffing box containment solutions on the market in the USA, Canada, and throughout the world.
A Stuffing box can come in many sizes, shapes, pressure ratings and most importantly with various sealing arrangements. The primary function of a stuffing box is to seal fluid pressure while the polish rod is stroked by the pumping unit.
With the use of most secondary containment, when a packing leak occurs, the pumping unit will shut down, stop the polish rod from stroking as this stops most of the flow of produced fluids, preventing large environmental spills. Further to the environmental aspects, containments reduce operator and or pumpers service time at each well during any clean up scenario.
Oil & Gas Operators set-up Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Steering Committees to monitor performance in the context of an evolving regulatory, legal and stakeholder landscape. The steering committee advises our senior leaders on issues for consideration in enterprise risk management, stakeholder engagement and regulatory and legal compliance. Part of the ESG programs is to ensure that they have adequate oil spill solutions in place.

Pollution Control Corp.
Pollution Control Corp. has been providing Oilfield and Industrial Containment Systems since 1992. American Pollution Control Corp. (AMPOL) is a full service environmental remediation company and contractor that specializes in inland, nearshore, and offshore emergency response and hazardous waste remediation. Serving oil and gas companies, industrial companies and government agencies, AMPOL provides emergency and nonemergency toxic and hazardous materials containment, collection and assistance with transport and disposal.
AdOil Inc., is a client-first company that develops, manufactures and distributes wellhead containment devices for the oil industry to protect against the financial and environmental costs of wellhead leakage.
The company began as a wellsite inspection firm in 1986 and our inspectors noticed a recurring problem of wellhead seal wear related spillage. This problem was a concern to AdOil Inc. and its customers because of soil and groundwater contamination. Reclamation and disposal costs were skyrocketing, and a need was identified for an effective way to mitigate the risks associated with increasing water-oil ratio (WOR) to avoid soil contamination.
All products currently on the market proved ineffective and difficult to use by the field personnel. AdOil Inc. developed and field tested the TITAN® as a solution in 2002. The TITAN® is durable and operator-friendly product featuring a cast aluminum basin and shatterproof clear view cover. This product arrests all seepage, spills, fluids, and leaks. By addressing common small leaks, heavy leaks and blowouts were eliminated addressed simultaneously. The TITAN® was designed to exceed environmental compliance and reduce oilfield operating costs. A true win-win solution.
Suitable for all oil wells and is paramount in environmentally sensitive areas. Wellhead containment proves to be both cost-effective and environmentally conscious.
