Offshore Containment Boom

Offshore Containment Boom

Booms are routinely used to surround and contain oil spilled at sea and to deflect its passage away from sensitive resources or toward a recovery point. The success of booming operations can be limited by the rapid spread of floating oil and the effects of currents, tides, winds and waves. Effective boom design and a well planned and coordinated response can reduce these problems, although in some circumstances the use of any boom might be inappropriate.

Description

8″ x 12″ Containment Boom

8″ Diameter flotation
12″ Skirt depth
Galvanized chain ballast
22 oz./sq. yd Jaton or 24oz./sq. yd Jaton Plus fabric: orange or yellow
