A computerized monitoring system controls the rate of dispersant application, reducing waste. It senses the speed of the system through the water and self-adjusts the pumping rate. Oil enters the dispersant application zone (DAZ) at uniform thickness allowing more precise dosing and targeting.
The system includes two sections of AirMax boom, computerized oil spill dispersant pumping unit, dispersant application unit and mixing panel. This system allows the neat (full concentration) application of oil spill dispersant directly onto the oil. As the setup is more efficient, more oil can be treated with each deployment. Most importantly, the system operates at a safe distance from operators, reducing their exposure to wind-blown chemicals.
Independent tests at Ohmsett confirm efficiency of up to 92%.
