Boom & Dock CurtainTM
Continuously Remove Oil and Sheen at Marinas and Docks
The Boom & DockTM Curtain is designed to be attached to floating docks, barges, boat lifts, rafts, fence boom, and a variety of other floating media to continuously remove oils, oil sheen and oil-borne contaminants that have been released to the water.
“Oil releases and oil sheen are continual issues at ports and marinas and on bodies of water adjacent to industrial operations.”
The Boom & DockTM Curtain is constructed of a loop of ADsorb-it® Filtration Fabric to form a curtain approximately 15 inches high by 10 feet in length. Polypropylene webbing is attached to the edges of the curtain for vertical reinforcement and to the top edge to allow the placement of grommets for mounting.
Grommets and snap hooks are placed at each end and at 20 inch intervals along the top edge of the curtain. There are also grommets placed at 10 inches in from each end for interconnecting multiple units. There are grommets and snap hooks at the lower ends of the curtain loop for attachment and removal of the lightweight ballast chain that is installed in the lower extreme of the curtain.
For oil releases adjacent to floating docks or in an area where Fence Boom has been deployed, attach the Boom & DockTM Curtain to the floating docks or to the top of the Fence Boom. The Boom & DockTM Curtain is designed with a ballast chain to ensure that the curtain hangs just below the floats of the Fence Boom. Oils, oil-borne contaminants and oil sheen will be retained in the fabric.
To reuse the Boom & DockTM Curtain, simply remove the ballast chain and snap hooks, and press, wring, or centrifuge to remove and recover the retained oils. Replace the ballast chain and the Boom & DockTM Curtain is ready to reuse.
