Neoprene Boom

The Neoprene Boom is a robust and durable air inflated boom. It is suitable for rapid emergency oil containment cases as well as permanent installations in harbours, nearshore and offshore scenarios, can also be supplied as a a single point inflation boom.

This is manufactured in robust Neoprene. The boom has 3 m (10 ft) long air chambers. Each individual buoyancy chamber is isolated. In the event that one air chamber may become damaged or deflated, adjacent chambers will not be affected and will remain inflated. Air-inflation is done from the outer end of the boom via a 2″ Camlock. In addition, each air chamber is fitted with Monsun XG 1 air valves.
The ballast chain is a hot dip galvanised steel chain that gives strength, correct and stable deployment in sweeping operations and provides excellent sea keeping properties. The ballast chain is incorporated in the base of the skirt. The sections comes with ASTM Z connectors made in accordance with the F962 standard. The Harbour 970 can be deployed at 30 m/min (100 ft/min). It is a safe and easy to retrieve boom that easily deflates onto a storage reel.
