Petroleum sorbents repel water while absorbing oil and petroleum-based liquids from spills and effluent discharges. Booms are scrim-encased tubes of particulate sorbent material secured by UV-resistant netting. T-280 is double-constructed with (2) 4” booms secured in UV-resistant netting. Built-in attachment clips on ends of booms allow them to be linked together and overlapped, helping to reduce seepage between the segments. T-270 absorbs approximately 20 gals. per boom, T-280 absorbs approximately 10 gals. per boom.
