Oil Spill Clean Up Solutions

Oil Filter Booms

Capture Floating Oil Quickly And Stop It From Reaching The Shore. Six-foot-long booms made with Ultra-X-Tex absorb oil from water much faster than standard polypropylene booms. Unlike polypropylene, Ultra-X-Tex material will allow water to pass through freely while filtering any oil present on the water’s surface.

Oil Filter Boom, Skirted Model

Stop Oil Spills At the Surface AND Below. Made with Ultra-X-Tex material — allows water to instantly filter through the material and pulls off the oil selectively as the material is lippophilic. Weighted skirt hangs below Boom capturing any oil that is underwater but close to the surface. Additional skirts can be quickly added for deeper water protection.

Oil Blanket

Protect Beaches And Shorelines From Spills. Install in the surf along beaches and shorelines to absorb oil spills before they can make it to land. Large section of Ultra-X-Tex quickly removes oil and other hydrocarbons. Blanket will “tumble” in the surf and remove oil from water as it passes by and thru the filtering fabric.

Spill Fence

Protect Shorelines, Riverbeds, And Other Environmentally Sensitive Areas From Oil Spills. Captures oil on the surface of the water, but unlike boom and other floating devices, the Ultra-X-Tex fence will also capture sub-surface oil. Made with Ultra-X-Tex — provides the unique benefit of allowing tidal water to flow through the fabric while absorbing oil as it passes through the fabric. Even hard-to-capture emulsified oil created by dispersants used in the open ocean is absorbed.

Ultra-X-Tex

Recycled Fabric Allows Water To Instantly Filter Through While Pulling Off Oil. The rolled fabric is different than polypropylene in that it allows water to instantly filter through the material and pulls off the oil selectively as the material is hydrophilic. Polypropylene repels the water and this can make it take longer for the oil to be readily absorbed in a surf environment where the oil is no longer a surface sheen, rather it is being broken up in the surf.

Microbes

Oil-Eating Microbes “supercharge” Mother Nature’s own bioremediation process. Find out more about the different Ultra-Microbes products that are available including Ultra-Microbe Shakers, Ultra-Microbe Packets and Ultra-Microbe Bulk Bags.

Microbe Booms

Floating Booms keep Microbes on the water’s surface...right where the oil is. Tablets that are inserted into the Boom slowly dissolve in water and Ultra-Microbes are released to begin the bioremediation process.
