Sokerol Land Booms are the perfect absorbent containment tool for land based spills. Correct and timely application of booms in spill situations prevents contaminants from escaping to drains or into the surrouding environment. Booms are best used in conjunction with loose Sokerol absorbent where the boom is used to form an absorbent barrier around the spill and loose Sokerol is used to absorb the bulk of the spill. Booms are also great to place in and around leaky equipment or machinery, or to create a barrier around drains during spill cleanup.
Instructions for Use
- On land, after securing the site to prevent further spillage, contain the spill using Sokerol Land Booms or by creating a perimeter of loose Sokerol around the spill. Once contained, generously cover the entire spill with loose Sokerol. Wait 1-2 minutes for maximum absorption and collect product with a broom, rake or scoop. Place used product into a container for disposal.
- For use around equipment and machinery, locate the source and path of the equipment leak, position the boom appropriately so that the leak is being intercepted by the boom at its earliest point of travel along a suitable base (floor, on top of other machinery) be sure to position the boom at a point between the leak and any drainage that may exist in the surrounding area. Once leak or spill has been remediated, place the boom into a container for disposal.
- To prevent spills from entering drainage or to block flow of contaminants from other portions of a space, mold the boom into the appropriately shaped perimeter around the drain or vent (circle, square, irregular, etc.) be sure that the boom is the appropriate length and does not leave a gap between ends. Depending on the size of the drain and spill, this may require multiple booms to achieve best results. If a spill is at risk of infiltrating adjoining rooms or spaces, use booms to create a barrier at the base of doors or other open paths to keep the spill in the immediately affected spill area and away from other uncontaminated spaces. Once the spill or leak has been remediated, place the boom into a container for disposal.
- With an additional 1.5 litres of absorption capacity over the Mini Land Boom, the Standard Land Boom is perfect for stopping the flow of a steady leak or larger spill, indoors or out, whether on the ground or around machinery or vehicles.
- At 1.5m in length and 75mm in diameter, the Standard Land Boom is ideal for creating a perimeter barrier around most drains and vents to isolate spills to the immediate spill area and prevent spills from spreading and contaminating drainage water or adjoining spaces.
- The Standard Land Boom is also the ideal size to create an absorbent seal at the base of doorways, to prevent entry or exit of a spill from one room to another, especially in larger spill situations.
How much oil can a Standard Land Boom absorb?A:
Each Standard Land Boom contains 1.5 kilograms of Sokerol and can absorb up to 4.5 litres of liquid. CLICK HERE FOR FULL LIST
Will the Standard Land Boom drip a contaminant upon removal for disposal or transfer to another site?A:
The Sokerol inside of each Land Boom is a non-leaching absorbent, meaning that once it has absorbed the contaminant, the contaminant will remain inside of the absorbent, or "ecapsulated," even with the introduction of water, pressure or time. The only instance in which a Land Boom might drip a contaminant is if the boom has exceeded its absorption capacity.
Can Land Booms be used in water?A:
Land Booms are designed for use on land, indoors or outdoors, in any weather. Land Booms are not equipped with any internal floatation, nor do they have the ability to connect to other Land Booms. For water spills, Sokerol Marine Booms should be used to create an absorbent containment barrier.
Do I need to wear any special safety or protective clothing when handling Sokerol?A:
Sokerol is 100% safe to use and handle without protective equipment; however, the contaminants it absorbs are not always as safe. Please use appropriate protective clothing and equipment based on the contaminant being absorbed.
How do I dispose of Sokerol once I have used it to absorb a contaminant?A:
Just as Sokerol absorbs many different hydrocarbons and chemicals, there are various disposal regulations for different contaminants and in different towns, states and countries. Sokerol is a non-leaching absorbent for hydrocarons, therefore rendering them inert from any further environmental contamination upon absorption; however, Sokerol recommends users check with their local, state or federal authorities for proper disposal regualtions based on the contaminant absorbed.
