Petro Plugs and Barriers let water pass sealing once a hydrocarbon is present providing full containment.

Product uses range from storm water management in substations to storage tank containments.

IMG uses the following SPI Products:


Designed for high-volume water drainage in a good drainage field with a vertical type installation, Petro-Barriers are custom-designed and manufactured in our factory for shipping to your location or installed by SPI for each site. Land slope, under-drain percolation rates, rainfall amount, containment area size and other factors are all considered in the system design. In the event of an oil spill, the barrier material forms a plug to prevent oil from escaping into the discharge and hence into the environment.


When a high water table, poor-draining soil or other factors make vertical drainage into the ground difficult or impossible, discharge of water from a containment area can still be accomplished horizontally through a Petro-Pipe. In these cases, a berm, curb or wall can be installed to hold back rainwater that might also contain oil. Installing several Petro-Pipes through concrete, asphalt or earth will trap the oil while allowing uncontaminated water to pass through. Petro-Pipes are available in a variety of sizes, are adaptable to a wide range of valves, drains and other piping, and are easily replaced.


Designed to protect small floor drains in boiler rooms, garages and warehouses, Petro-Plugs are disposable oil barriers that are more effective and less expensive than oil/water separators. Designed to fit standard piped floor drains in boiler rooms, garages, warehouses, oil storage areas and underground vaults, the Petro-Plug removes low levels of gas, grease or oil while allowing water to flow through as usual. If an oil or fuel spill runs to the drain, the Petro-Plug seals off. This allows spills to be cleaned up at the source, potentially saving thousands of dollars in cleanup costs and fines.
