OX Oil SheenSorb
A Fast-Acting Passive Skimmer for Stormwater Drains
The OX Oil SheenSorb is an economical, easy-to-use passive skimmer or storm drain insert that arrives fully assembled and ready to connect to any grate for effective stormwater management. While catch basin filter socks perform in a similar manner by collecting harmful particles from runoff and keeping water free of debris, this oil absorbent pillow rapidly absorbs hydrocarbon contaminants, adding an increased level of storm drain insert protection to any site's SWPPP BMP.
Oil SheenSorb Installation
1. Attach the 6' tether to the drain grate
2. Drop the passive skimmer into the drain, making sure it floats along the water
3. Monitor regularly to ensure absorption is occurring
Once the Oil SheenSorb passive skimmer is installed, the oil absorbent pillow floats freely along the water without blocking the drain, and is capable of absorbing up to 1 gallon of contaminant before replacement is required. When it's time for removal, pull the SheenSorb by the tether and dispose in a safe container.
