With the advent of earbuds, adults everywhere heaved a sigh of relief: they no longer had to endure the sonic assault of teen music, where decibel levels can reach friends who live several states away.
But there’s one type of boom earbuds won’t remedy nor would you want them to. An Absorbent Boom.
Absorbent booms are a welcome “sound” when there’s an immediate need for spill containment or spill remediation. FiberDuck Oil Absorbent Booms create a barrier to stop any oil spill, especially on water, and will float indefinitely, even when fully saturated. They’re made from a special patented hydrophobic fiber and highly UV resistant materials, which quickly absorb hydrocarbons such as crude oil, motor oil, diesel oil and gasoline. Absorbent booms are encased in netting and include a rope, snap-hook and ring, making them a “snap” to connect.
XSORB Select Oil Absorbent Booms remove oil and petroleum-based spills from the marine environment, and are licensed by the California Department of Fish and Game as an Authorized Oil Clean-up Agent that will not harm the sensitive aquatic environment. Netted for extra strength, they also have attached ropes and hooks that allow linking for large areas.
Similarly, FiberLink Universal Absorbent Booms can quickly surround a spill and keep it from spreading, blocking liquids from sensitive areas such as roadways, walkways and drains.They mold around barrels or equipment to catch leaks and spills, and are a boon (or boom) for wastewater spill containment.
With Impact Absorbent booms, when the volume of life reaches fever pitch and spills over, you’re prepared. These booms will quietly stop leaks and spills safely and effectively, right at the source.
