AirMax - Inflatable Oil Spill Containment Boom
AirMax is a versatile inflatable oil spill containment
boom manufactured from high quality Urethane fabric. The AirMax
range of containment booms are designed for compact storage and quick deployment
- important characteristics when dealing with a oil spill response.
AirMax is fabricated using a durable fabric using a special process
that ensures the best possible integrity of the air chambers. The
high visibility orange fabric greatly assists mariners and vessel
operators avoid a potential navigational hazard. As an added safety
feature the hot galvanized steel ballast chain is enclosed in a
reinforced fabric pocket to prevent entanglements and pinch points
for operators. This chain also acts as a tension member for added
strength and resistance of towing forces. End connectors are fitted
with Zinc anodes.
The high buoyancy to weight ratios of the AirMax inflatable oil spill containment boom provides excellent
wave conformance and oil retention characteristics.
High capacity air blowers are
available to rapidly fill the individual air chambers as the boom
is deployed into the water.
The AirMax boom can be supplied in a V-Sweep
configuration for single vessel systems. Larger models are typically
supplied on boom reels.
