Simplex Containment Boom Used In Saltwater Disposal Facility
A saltwater disposal company uses 40 ft of Elastec’s Simplex 6″ X 6″ boom with ASTM Universal Connectors and Tow Bridles to skim oil off the top of the saltwater. As shown in the pictures, they start the boom out in a straight line, then using the tow bridle, they sweep the boom over to the other side of the bay. Then, in a horseshoe formation, they drag the oil down to the other end and pump the oil over to the oil tank.
