Oil & Fuel Absorbent Mini Booms

Supplier: Global Spill Control

Oil & fuel absorbent booms are also known as mini booms or oil socks. They are perfect for containing, diverting or absorbing oil and fuel spills in the workplace.

Price Guide: POA

Use on land to contain and absorb oil and fuel. Oil and fuel absorbent booms are ideal for blocking a spill from entering waterways and drains.

Hydrocarbon absorbent booms absorb oil, fuel, diesel, petrol and other hydrocarbons whilst repelling water. These booms are used to contain, divert and absorb spills.

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.

Highly flexible, hydrocarbon absorbent booms can be stuffed into drains, moulded around machinery, pushed under pallets or used to block and divert a spill from entering waterways and drains.

  • Great for mine site and maintenance workshops, factory and warehouse floors, fuel handling facilities, oil storage depots, vehicle repair shops and transport facilities.
  • Prevent spills from escaping by forming an absorbent barrier around drums, forklifts, plant and machinery.
  • Ideal for stormwater drain protection.
  • Tough, durable, non-allergenic, non-hazardous and dust-free absorbent.
  • Excellent water repellent characteristics (hydrophobic) – use in the rain or float on water to absorb oil and fuel only.
  • Fast absorption for improved safety and productivity in the workplace.
  • Can be squeezed and re-used.
  • Simple and easy to use without the need for specialised PPE.

Hydrocarbon absorbent booms are able to absorb up to 20 times their own weight in liquid by encapsulating the liquid within the polypropylene’s fine fibres. High absorbency to weight ratio equals lower transport and disposal costs.
