OIL SPILL & LEAK CONTAINMENT

Oil Blocker™ PERIMETER BARRIER

Using Albarrie’s patented mineral oil-reactive self-sealing smart fabric technology, Oil Blocker Barrier Boom keeps an oil spill within a confined area or around mineral oil-filled equipment.

AN ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE TO A FULL OIL CONTAINMENT

Albarrie’s Oil Blocker Barrier Boom offers you a quick, perimeter oil spill containment solution to meet compliance with the EPA Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) per 40 CFR 112.7. 

The Oil Blocker Barrier Boom provides an affordable vertical barrier for sub-grade soils like clay. It’s an economical alternative that prevents oil from leaving your property or confined area without disrupting drainage. Oil Blocker Barrier Boom gives you the flexibility to choose an oil containment solution that works best for your situation in line with good engineering and environmental practices. Oil Blocker Barrier Boom is sold as a roll of smart fabric and custom cut to meet your height requirement.

Product Details

Albarrie's Oil Blocker Barrier Boom Installation
SMART FABRIC TECHNOLOGY

Albarrie’s transformer secondary oil containment systems and oil-spill containments use patented mineral oil-reactive self-sealing smart fabric technology known as Oilmat. The smart fabric contains a unique proprietary blend of dense oil-immobilizing polymers, called Alabsorb, between two nonwoven fabric layers that seal on contact with oil, not water.

MINIMIZE ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE

Installed vertically, Oil Blocker Barrier Boom minimizes the damage caused by transformer mineral oil spills by controlling the spill and keeping it within your property. Oil Blocker Barrier Boom allows water to pass through but traps and locks-in oil on contact.

WE SUPPLY. YOU INSTALL.

You can install without service interruption in brownfield or greenfield applications.

UNFAZED BY RELENTLESS ELEMENTS

Traditional concrete secondary oil containment systems aren’t ideal for severe weather, such as heavy rainfall, snow, ice, and freezing temperatures. There’s a high risk of water overflowing and mechanical pumps failing. Fortunately, due to the free-draining ability of Albarrie’s smart fabric, you never need to worry about severe weather.
