OIL & FUEL MARINE BOOM WITH FLOATS S/HOOK 3M X 18CM
Includes internal floats to absorb up to 60 litres with this marine boom used to contain, divert and absorb spills of oils and fuels on water.
This heavy duty, absorbent oil and fuel marine boom is designed for long term deployment or emergency response. Their internal floats permit the boom to float and provide a containment barrier even when fully saturated with oil.
Our large absorbent oil and fuel marine boom is used to control, contain and clean up oil and fuel spills on waterways including bays, harbours, dams, rivers, ponds and drains.
An absorbent oil and fuel marine boom is also ideal to protect shorelines, riverbanks and jetties from oil contamination from boats, ships, rigs, barges or dredges, as well as spills from excavators and earthmoving machinery working near water.
Oil and fuel absorbent booms can also be used on land. With their tough outer mesh sleeve and excellent ability to join and stay linked, they are a heavy-duty option for spill control and containment of oily contaminated water from workshops and washpads, as well as stormwater protection at oil and fuel storage and handling facilities.
Oil and fuel absorbents are made from meltblown polypropylene and are colour-coded white for easy identification. These absorbents are able to absorb up to 20 times their own weight in oil and have a fast-wicking action to clean up spills quickly. Oil and fuel absorbents are hydrophobic, which means they repel water. This makes them ideal for cleaning up oil and fuel spills in wet environments, including ponds, sumps, drains, lakes, rivers, creeks or in the rain.
Actual absorbent capacity will vary depending on liquid viscosity, specific gravity and temperature.
These large marine oil and fuel absorbent booms:
Are a heavy duty, long-term or emergency deployment absorbent boom.
Include internal floats which enable the boom to float and provide a containment barrier even when fully saturated with oil.
Feature a heavy-duty, knitted outer mesh sleeve to provide tensile strength and UV protection.
Are naturally buoyant.
Used booms can be squeezed and re-used.
Feature fast and simple snap hook joiners at each end of the boom to allow multiple booms to be joined together. Joiners are positioned to allow a 300mm overlap between joins, reducing the potential for oil bypass.
Are highly water-repellent and oleophilic (attract oil).
Lightweight and simple to use and deploy without the need for specialised PPE.
Large oil and fuel absorbent marine booms can be ordered individually.
