Oil Spill Absorbent Materials

Oil Absorbent Snares

Absorbent Snares are a sling-style absorbent used in areas dealing with a significant build-up of thick or emulsified oil. Designed specifically for heavier oils, the Oil Snare is effective in capturing and retaining Bunker C (#4 and #5 oil) and Bunker B (#6 oil) oils. Snares can be used individually or placed on a rope for mass clean up in offshore or open water areas. Once the snare is place, it will absorb oil until it forms a ball-like structure that can be easily removed and placed in disposal.

Design and Use

Oil Absorbent Snares are a versatile product that can be used by hand or in conjunction with open water spill clean up products. One of the most effective methods of use is by combining the use of snares with a long braided rope. In this set up, snares are placed every 22 inches along the length of a rope that is 50 feet in length. Ropes with snares can then be pulled behind boats to absorb oil from the surface of the water. This is perfect for open waters, off shore areas, or areas where oil is leaking continuously into a waterway.

Snare Uses:

  • Shorelines
  • Coasts
  • Beaches
  • Open Waters
