Bio Oil Booms are a product specifically designed to absorb and biologically degrade oils and greases in industrial Interceptors, petrol Station Forecourt and Car Park Interceptors, Sumps, Bilges, Oil Traps, Bunds and Oily Water Drains.
Each Bio Oil Boom measuring 36cm (d) x 63cm contains both oil absorbing polypropylene and oil specific bacteria.
Once the bio mass colony is established, each Bio Oil Boom is capable of digesting up to a minimum 3kg of free surface oil every week.
How they work
The Bio Oil Boom absorbs oil as a traditional absorbent but does not need replacing for up to 6 months.
The harmless oil specific bacteria contained in the boom have been selected for their ability to digest and remove a broad range of hydrocarbons. The by-product of this process is carbon dioxide and water.
Once a bio mass has formed within the Oil Boom, oil specific bacteria will migrate and attach themselves to the bottom and sides of the interceptors and continue to degrade any oil in that area.
Directions for use.
Ideal deployment is following a routine clean out of the interceptor. Lower Oil Boom onto surface of water and secure using attached rope. In a standard 3 stage Interceptor (1 cubic metre per hour flow rate) place Oil Booms in the second and third chamber.
Replace up to every six months depending upon input of oil.
Depending upon ambient temperature allow 6 – 8 weeks for a bio mass colony to become established.
Note: Influent streams to interceptor systems containing high concentrations of disinfectants, bleaches or high pH aqueous degreasers will destroy bacterial colonies and result in the Oil Boom.
