Marine Sweeps, Poly Mops and Bilge Socks

Supplier: Global Spill Control

Mops are used on heavier oils that are floating on a water surface. They are often used at marinas or where oil is intercepting the coast. A marine sweep is used to reclaim the final sheen or slick of oil on a river, pond or dam.

Bilge sock small – 40cm x 12cm

High capacity, absorbent bilge socks are perfect to mop up oil and fuel spills which may be floating on water, in bilges of boats or in oil interceptor pits.

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.

  • Use in bilges (or interceptor pits) of all sizes to absorb free oil floating on the surface.
  • Naturally buoyant socks sink to the water level when saturated with hydrocarbons.
  • High capacity absorbency makes bilge sock ideal for quick response mop up of large pooled oil/fuel spills floating on water.
  • Excellent vapour suppressing and water repellent characteristics (hydrophobic).
  • Heavy duty knitted outer mesh sleeve provides tensile strength and UV protection.
  • Eyelets at each end of bilge socks allow connection of multiple socks together or a recovery rope to be attached.
  • High absorbency to weight ratio = lower transport & disposal costs.
  • Tough, durable, non allergenic, non hazardous and dust free.
  • Bilge sock can be squeezed and re-used.
  • Simple and easy to use without the need for specialised PPE.

Small bilge socks can be ordered individually or in cartons of 30.

Large bilge socks are can be ordered individually or in cartons of 18.

Oil and fuel absorbent sweep 30m x 43cm (SWP30)

This oil absorbent sweep is used to reclaim the final sheen or slick from oil and fuel spills on rivers, ponds, dams and other water bodies. With 30 metres of high capacity absorbent fabric, this oil absorbent sweep is ideal for a quick response clean up.

Stitched webbing is fixed to one edge of the sweep, reinforcing the fabric and allowing a sweeping action to occur across a thin oil sheen without pulling the fabric apart.

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.

  • Excellent water repellent characteristics (hydrophobic).
  • Non allergenic, non hazardous with no dust.
  • Fast absorption for improved safety and productivity.
  • Can be squeezed and re-used.
  • Simple, lightweight and easy to use without the need for specialised PPE.

Oil absorbent sweeps can be ordered individually or supplied in cartons of two.

Oil and fuel poly mop (PM200)

Poly oil mop ideal to collect heavy oils such as bunker C, crude, medium fuel oil or other heavy oil that is floating on the top of the water’s surface.

Oil mops are made from polyethylene strands and are used to collect oils such as bunker C, crude, medium fuel oil or other heavy oils that are floating on the water’s surface. The mop is attached to a handle and is ideal for use in and around jetties, marinas, rocks and shorelines. Oil mops help to remove the heavy oils which may exist on the water’s surface, even after the spilled hydrocarbon has been skimmed or absorbed.

Oil mops are manufactured from webbed strands of oil-attracting (oleophilic) polyethylene fibres that do not absorb water.

They have a fast-wicking action to clean up spills. Oil and fuel poly mops are hydrophobic, which means they repel water and are ideal for cleaning up fine sheens of remaining oils.

Oil mops can be attached to rope and floated as a barrier, allowing the current to take the spill through the barrier.

  • Use for spills of thick oils on water.
  • Non allergenic, non-hazardous with no dust.
  • Simple and easy to use without the need for specialised PPE.

Poly oil mops can be ordered individually or supplied in cartons of 75.

High capacity to weight ratio equals lower transport and disposal costs
