The Trident Harbourguard boom is a high buoyancy curtain boom sited to both harbours and open waters. The boom ensures protection of the harbourside water environment from accidental discharge of oils and other contaminating products.
A boom of high strength, buoyancy and stability consisting of a cylindrical foam filled float section and a skirt with galvanised chain ballast/tension member.
Floats: High impact resistant HD polyethylene floats
Ballast: Block weights or galvanised chain
Base fabric: PVG – Manufactured from PVC/PU blend coated onto woven polyester scrim with good water and oil resistance, 4mm thickness,
Connectors: EMCON and ASTM
Breaking strength: 300kN/m (30.6 tonnes/m)
The Shield boom (otherwise known as a log boom) is suitable for installation in environments such as rivers, harbours, lakes and estuaries where heavier or larger volumes of floating debris are present.
The Shield boom is manufactured from double walled HDPE with an integral closed cell foam float and internal steel channel ballast for high resistance to impact from debris.
The optional debris screen is available in galvanised or stainless steel and can be attached to the boom to also contain submerged debris.
Maritime air booms are typically used onboard spill response vessels or applications where a float filled boom would prove too bulky to store and space is restricted.
Maritime air booms are typically deployed in open waters where a boom can be impacted by varying wave heights. In such environments this air boom has a higher buoyancy to weight ratio to maintain boom performance in changing wave conditions.
Maritime air booms are manufactured from Neoprene or Hypalon for added strength to withstand harsh offshore conditions.
A powered boom reel and inflator would be required for correct deployment of this boom.
Beach Seal and Bank Seal Booms are a highly effective oil containment boom for shallow water or intertidal zones. These water ballasted booms can also be used on land.
The Trident Beach Seal and Bank Seal booms act as an oil containment boom when afloat, and when the water level recedes in tidal or variable water level situations, acts to retain the oil by forming a seal with the ground. This range of booms are suitable for all applications from small streams to beaches.
When afloat booms have excellent wave following characteristics due to their air buoyancy/water ballast tube design. In deployment situations where the boom is aground, the vertical perforated inner membrane acts as a tension member and prevents the boom from rolling, giving the boom excellent stability and sealing characteristics.
The beach seal / bank seal boom is very versatile. It can be used at the water’s edge as a beach seal which maintains an effective barrier throughout the tidal range to protect marshes. In shallow rivers, the boom can be used to improve oil recovery operations by acting as a dam to increase water depth.
The smooth continuous boom profile inhibits the formation of vortices, thereby discouraging oil loss under the boom and due to its ability to operate with a low air inflation pressure the boom is highly flexible and contours more effectively.
This range of booms are incredibly durable with a high resistance to punctures, abrasion and rough handling and are resistant to hydrocarbons and are protected against damaging effects of UV rays.
After deployment, these booms can be easily cleaned with normal detergents and hot or cold pressure washers.
