Absorbent Booms with PVC Skirts

Typical applications are

  • Spill response in sea bays, lakes and rivers
  • Countermeasure steps for spills of boat accidents
  • Oil recovery and fire boat equipment
  • SPCC equipment for marinas and boats

Details

By deploying the boom with the absorbent facing the spill you can contain and absorb it or by deploying with the face of the boom away from the spill it will act as a containment boom, ideal for light debris or when you want to recover the spill mechanically. This cost effective, light-weight boom comes in a pack of two providing 10m of cover when joined together.
