Ultra-Oil Filter Booms®

Capture floating oil quickly and stop it from reaching the shore

Ultra-Oil Filter Booms are made with X-Tex.  This material allows large volumes of water to pass through while capturing any oil and hydrocarbons from the flow making it perfect for oil spills on the water. 

  • 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.
  • Each Oil Filter Boom has connecting hardware pre-installed so multiple units can be quickly and easily attached for longer lengths.
  • Units are designed to be connected with 1-foot overlap to ensure maximum containment and coverage.
