Oil spill control products from First Choice Marine Supply are always in stock for immediate delivery. Our huge inventory of Pads, Rolls, Booms and Pillows absorb hydrocarbon-based fluids (oil, gasoline, diesel, hydraulic fluids, etc.) and they repel water.
We have Absorbent Pads in bundles of 100’s or 200’s, Booms in 3″, 5″ and 8″ diameter, Rolls in 38″ x 144′ length, and Absorbent Pillows in 8″ x 18″ size. These absorbents are used to skim oil off of water. Their fibrous textures draw hydrocarbon-based fluids into the center of the pads and/or rolls while repelling water.
These absorbents are untreated, so there are no additional chemical additives that get into the water. Untreated polypropylene is hydrophobic (repels water) and oleophilic (absorbs oil).
Booms are linked together, forming a barrier around the perimeter of a spill. Once the spill is contained, pads and rolls are deployed to absorb the spilled liquids.
