AIRMAX V-SWEEP Oil Spill Containment Boom
The AirMax V-Sweep is for single ship operations with
an outrigger arm mounted to the ship that holds one end of the sweep
open. This system allows for a single vessel to conduct containment
operations - although a V-Sweep has a reduced encounter rate than
a conventional oil spill containment boom array, it is easier to maintain in the correct
configuration once deployed.
skimmer can be placed inside the apex of the boom.
The outrigger arm is fabricated in several sections
to allow for shipping. This arm can be supplied in different lengths
to suit the vessel, it comes with an articulated joint that mounts
to the bulwark - it allows the arm to rise and fall with the waves
and move fore and aft.
We can offer a boom
reel for storage of one or more V-Sweeps. Note: It is helpful
if the deployment boat is fitted with a suitable crane - both for
handling the V-Sweep and a skimmer.
AirMax V-Sweep is a versatile inflatable oil spill containment
boom sweep manufactured from high quality Urethane fabric. AirMax
is fabricated using a special process that ensures the best possible
integrity of the air chambers.
