The hydrocarbon absorbent booms absorb petrol, oil, fuel, diesel, and other hydrocarbons. They are hydrophobic. As a result, they repel water. Therefore, they are perfect for drains, lakes, ponds, rivers and other wet environments. The absorbents absorb up to 20 times their own weight in liquid.
Oil and fuel absorbents are made from meltblown polypropylene and colour-coded white. They are also flexible and therefore, mould for drains, machinery and pallets.
They are perfect for mine site and maintenance workshops, warehouses, fuel handling facilities, oil storage depots, vehicle repair shops and transport facilities. Additionally, they protect storm water drains.
These mini booms are tough, durable, non-allergenic, non-hazardous and dust-free absorbent. They are also reusable, just squeeze out the liquid.
The absorbent capacity depends on liquid viscosity, specific gravity and temperature. For specific chemicals, check the MSDS, compatibility chart or sample testing. The absorbent will retain the characteristics of the liquid. As a result, PPE and local regulations should be used and followed.
