This containment boom creates a temporary floating barrier to deflect or contain anything floating on the surface of the water. For instance, it is typically used to contain an oil or fuel spill but could also be used to collect other floating chemicals or debris.
These booms are sometimes also referred to as an oil containment boom, spill containment boom or floating containment boom.
Our floating containment booms perform very well in rough weather and can be used for short or long term deployment in harbours, rivers, ponds, dams and other open waterways.
Containment Boom Construction:
The freeboard has a continuous internal float created from oil and crumble resistant closed cell foam encased in a continuous PVC chamber.
The skirt is the draft or the part that is below the water surface once deployed. The skirt is impervious. It’s a continuation of the same material used to create the float chambers.
The continous ballast is created by encasing galvanized chain in a pocket at the bottom of the skirt. The ballast is continuous and runs the full length of the skirt.
There are connectors on either end of the sections to join booms together. These are an industry standard ASTM F962 Z-Connector made of extruded aluminium. The Z-connector ensures quick, simple and reliable joining of boom sections.
