Absorbent oil spill containment booms are made in standard diameters of either five or eight inches (5" or 8") and are available in either oil only, universal or general maintenance model. Each boom will typically include UV resistant polyester netting, snaps, linked steel rings, and rope for easy installation in your location.

Oil Spill Containment Boom Applications

The absorbent oil boom barrier is a frequent choice for on-site emergency response for absorbing oils and hazardous materials. Oil Booms are most commonly used in water-based applications such as containment in:

  • Harbors
  • Marinas
  • Small Lakes
  • Ponds
  • Roadside Spills
  • Industrial Spills
  • Rivers

Oil booms are also frequently kept on hand at various locations to quickly deploy and contain a spill once it has occurred. As an added bonus, an absorbent boom barrier may also be placed on land to contain oil around machinery, vehicles, and other potential leaks.
