OIL BLOCKER

BARRIER BOOM THAT KEEPS MAINTENANCE TO A MINIMUM

Barrier boom Oil Blocker was developed to help clients meet general spill containment provisions that apply to all areas of their facility which have a potential to cause an oil discharge. Oil Blocker barrier boom was specifically made to allow companies to quickly boom all or part of their perimeters to help meet federal SPCC regulations of secondary containment and diversion at a fraction of the cost of alternative methods. Oil Blocker barrier boom offers an excellent, affordable barrier option for impervious sub-grade soils like clay, puts the power to manage costs in the client’s hands and allows them the flexibility to choose what approach best works for them. For sandy soils we offer Oil Blocker Plus.

Oil Blocker barrier boom is installed vertically and is intended to minimize damage due to escaping oil by controlling the spill and keeping it within your property. Designed using the same concept and quality geotextile fabric materials as the innovative SorbWeb™ Plus oil containment system, Oil Blocker barrier boom allows water to pass through but traps and locks in hydrocarbons on contact keeping them from leaving the facility until the incident can be responded to.

  • Allows water to pass through freely. High flow rate.
  • No quilting, stitching or pockets.
  • Intended for facility owners interested in developing their own secondary containment design in accordance with good engineering practice and the most likely oil discharge derived from their failure mode analysis.
  • Produced with a continuous stream of oil immobilizing polymers encapsulated between two nonwoven geotextiles by needle punching, means there is no shifting of the polymer during handling, cutting or installation.
  • Built with a safety factor in mind, Oil Blocker has the highest polymer loading in the industry with a minimum of 2,500 mg/m2 or 73.7 oz/yd2. No other product comes close.
