Our Trench Drain Filter Boom protects stormwater systems from oil and other hydrocarbon pollutants.
This effective filtering media is made of X-Tex, a durable, long lasting geotextile. It is capable of absorbing an average of 13 times its own weight of liquid hydrocarbons.
X-Tex material is hydrophilic which means it gets wet with water. It includes a proprietary blend of fibers that absorb oil and grease from water without restricting flow through the material.
These qualities make X-Tex different to polypropylene which repels water and so can take longer to absorb oils.
The material offers high efficiency and excellent flow, while trapping sediment and oil contaminants. It is environmentally benign and does not leach harmful substances. And produces minimal residue or ash when incinerated.
Synthetic fiber made of recycled materials.
Helps comply with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and 40 CFR 122.26 for Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan Best Management Practices.
