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.
