The Absorbent Boom and Absorbent Socks

Oil Spill Absorbent Materials for Frac Tank Containment

Absorbent Sock with a Frac TankThe absorbent boom and absorbent socks are excellent containment solutions for any tank or site storing hydrocarbons, fuel, or frac fluids. Flexible and able to curve and bend around equipment or spills, our sorbents can be placed directly around tanks, valves, or spills to contain liquids and prevent further spreading of contaminated liquids. Absorbent socks come in oil only, hazmat, universal, or general spill clean up models.

All oil spill absorbent materials are constructed from a unique blend of materials that allows them to absorb contaminants while repelling water. As such, they are used during containment of both land and water spills.

Our high quality oil sorbents contain a polyethylene outer layer which allows the boom to float at the water's surface even when fully saturated. The inner layer is constructed from hydrocarbon absorbent polypropylene fibers, which deny water access and greatly improve spill clean up and efficiency. The absorbent boom and absorbent socks are a crucial addition to any facility's spill emergency response kit.
