The newest technology in oil/containment boom in the last 40 years!
Canadian Floating Fence Corporation’s innovative solution, XBOOM, is a fully patented technology easily deployed to meet your needs. XBOOM is comprised of a supported mesh filter, which is capable of physically separating water and oil and withstanding the forces of the surrounding wind and waves durably. The fence filters large and small floating objects, oil, and floating debris. This versatile technology is an effective hydrocarbon spill containment tool on rivers, lakes, oceans and amidst varying wind and water conditions. This fencing diverts, redirects and ultimately contains the waste matter in preparation for skimming and recovery.
How does the XBOOM work?
The patented ballasted vertical spars keep the filter mesh system in a stable upright position in all wind, current and wave actions.
The XBOOM can ‘filter’ (using various hybrid mesh weaves) matter such as aquatic plant life(algae blooms), floating debris (Tsunami), Jet ‘A’-Diesel-Bitumen and Bunker ‘C’ Crude and other waterborne debris.
XBOOM excels in containing Oil/Tar balls, Silt, Organics, and Surface Debris. Also ideal for capturing waterborne construction, tailing or settling pond Biomass(organics). This unique product is a superior barrier for surface and sub-surface containment requirements and can ideally be used in deep water or silt based operations and recovery.
The system utilizes our newest Heavy duty AQUAPADZ- a replaceable Hybrid mesh that separates and contains Hydrocarbons.
All components rated high tensile strength, UV resistant and chemically inert.
