Inland & Nearshore Containment Boom

Inland & Nearshore Containment Boom

Containment booms are used to control the spread of oil to reduce the possibility of polluting shorelines and other resources. Booms also concentrate oil in thicker surface layers, making recovery easier.

Description

Super Mini Boom

2″ Diameter Flotation
4″ Skirt Depth
Galvanized chain ballast
22 oz./sq. yd orange Jaton fabric
Poly couplers available as an option
Grommeted, reinforced ends are standard

Recommended section lengths: 25′, 50′ and 100′
Recommended use: Super Mini Booms are recommended as sweeping devices to aid in the removal of oil on water when a prevailing wind or current does not exist or does not prevent efficient removal.
The Super Mini Boom is deployed around the oil and then moved to reduce the coverage area, increasing the oil thickness for more efficient recovery by a vacuum hose or floating skimmer.
Super Mini Booms are effective containment devices on small streams, creeks, stock ponds and low water areas.

4″ x 6″ Containment Booms

4″ Diameter flotation
6″ Skirt depth
Galvanized chain ballast
22 oz./sq. yd Jaton or 24 oz./sq. yd Jaton Plus fabric: orange or yellow
Aluminum quick latch or slide couplers are recommended
Top tension cable available on request

Recommended section lengths: 25′, 50′, and 100′
Recommended use: 4″ x 6″ Booms are floating containment devices for ponds, small lakes, streams, creeks and small rivers where strong currents or winds do not exist.

4″ x 9″ Containment Booms

4″ Diameter flotation
9″ Skirt depth
Galvanized chain ballast
22 oz./sq. yd Jaton or 24 oz./sq. yd Jaton Plus fabric: orange or yellow
Aluminum quick latch or slide couplers are recommended
Top tension cable available on request

Recommended section lengths: 25′, 50′ and 100′
Recommended use: 4″ x 9″ Booms are favored by clean-up contractors and end-users because they cover a broader spectrum of applications and conditions.

6″ x 12″ Containment Booms

6″ Diameter flotation
12″ Skirt depth
Galvanized chain ballast
22 oz./sq. yd Jaton or 24 oz./sq. yd Jaton Plus fabric: orange or yellow
Aluminum quick latch or slide couplers are recommended
Top tension cable available on request

Recommended section lengths: 50′ and 100′
Recommended use: 6″ x 12″ Booms are used on lakes or open bodies of water where wind creates significant wave action. Under normal conditions, total section lengths should not exceed 500′ without a top tension member.

8″ x 12″ Containment Booms

8″ Diameter flotation
12″ Skirt depth
Galvanized chain ballast
22 oz./sq. yd Jaton or 24 oz./sq. yd Jaton Plus fabric: orange or yellow
Aluminum quick latch or slide couplers are recommended
Top tension cable available on request

Recommended section lengths: 50′ and 100′
Recommended use: these booms are recommended for large lakes, bays or harbors. Top cable is recommended when several hundred feet are deployed. 3/8″ chain ballast is recommended when tidal flows or currents exist.

8″ x 24″ Containment Booms

8″ Diameter flotation
24″ Skirt depth
Galvanized chain ballast
22 oz./sq. yd Jaton or 24 oz./sq. yd Jaton Plus fabric: orange or yellow
Aluminum quick latch or slide couplers are recommended
Top tension cable available on request

Recommended section lengths: 50′ and 100′
Recommended use: these booms are recommended for large lakes, bays or harbors. Top cable is recommended when several hundred feet are deployed. 3/8″ chain ballast is recommended when tidal flows or currents exist.
