Bulk Sea Sweep

  • General Information:

      Sea Sweep is available in loose particulate form packaged to meet the needs for a
      variety of applications. The particulate is approximately the same size as a normal
      toothpick broken into four equal pieces. Sea Sweep has been designed for application
      directly onto oil and chemical spills on land or water. After absorbing spills on water,
      Sea Sweep will remain floating for an indefinite length of time. Oil products that are
      absorbed will not be released from Sea Sweep, this prevents oil from soaking into
      sandy beaches and eliminates serious injury to birds and other wildlife inhabiting
      the shoreline.

  • Retrieval Methods:

      There is no special equipment required to retrieve the bulk Sea Sweep after it has
      absorbed an oil or chemical spill. Water borne spills can be retrieved with a commercial
      debris retrieval boat, oil skimmer or pool skimmer. Land spills can be retrieved with a
      vacuum truck, street sweeper, or broom and shovel.


  • Packaging:

      5, 10, and 25 pound plastic bags, and heavy fabric bag containing 500 pounds (2.27, 4.54 and 11.34 kilo plastic bags, and heavy fabric bag containing 226.8 kilos) for deployment by helicopter, boat boom, or crane. Applied by first releasing a safety mechanism then tripping the rip cord to drop the Bulk Sea Sweep through the bottom of the bag.
