Mini-Booms are a selective sorbent which will "sorb" hydrocarbon-based liquids (oleophilic) and repel aqueous-based liquids (hydrophobic). Mini-booms are typically used because of their tube-like shape to encircle spills and contain leaks. A 3 inches diameter scrim on the outside of the boom identifies the use while containing particulate sorbent material. The T-8 mini-boom is 8 feet in length. A case weighs 12 pounds.
