Most booms are designed to float on the water and absorb or contain the oil that’s on the surface. That makes sense since most of the oil will be on the surface. But what about the oil that is below the surface?
With larger spills, there will also be subsurface oil. The Ultra-Oil Filter Boom, Skirted Model uses X-Tex material to remove oil both at and below the surface.
Made with Ultra-X-Tex material - allows water to instantly filter through the material and pulls off the oil selectively as the material is lipophilic.
The weighted skirt (34") hangs below the boom capturing any oil that is underwater but close to the surface.
Additional 60" skirts can be quickly added for deeper water protection.
Multiple booms can be connected for long, continuous runs and easy deployment/retrieval.
Unique material removes emulsified oil and dispersants.
When only considering the “off the shelf” price, polypropylene is cheaper. However, when taking into consideration the additional costs of labor to deploy and retrieve each boom, the Ultra-Oil Filter Boom is considerably less expensive. Click here to learn more.
