Estuary Boom (Phoenix)

Estuary Phoenix 800 – Foam Buoyancy PU Fence Boom

APPLICATION

The Estuary Boom is a high specification and effective pollution control barrier boom that is ideal for emergency response or long term deployment in marine or very exposed waterways. The Estuary Phoenix 800 provides a very high level of protection with fast deployment and permanent buoyancy. A solid boom manufactured in slim profile section making it ideal for easy storage in zigzag form. The Estuary Boom features a unique double chain configuration making it suitable for inter-tidal locations where beaching occurs.

EQUIPMENT

A segmented solid buoyancy boom manufactured in hard wearing 1080 g/m2 PU alloy coated fabric giving durable abrasion resistance. Buoyancy is provided by enclosed cross link closed cell foam which means that the boom will remain buoyant even if the coating is punctured. Two enclosed 8 mm galvanised chains provides ballast. The lower of the two running along the base of the boom keeps the draft curtain in place, preventing oil flowing under the boom. The second chain is fitted just below the foam buoyancy panels, and holds the freeboard upright, even in rough or windswept conditions.

This unique design does away with the more conventional stiffening rods. By so doing, the boom may now be allowed to beach in tidal waters with out damage occurring. This is therefore the only foam filled boom for tidal applications, and a highly cost effective alternative to the Shore Phoenix when beach sealing is not required. Further benefits include the angle of the free board being unaffected by the angle of the draft, so reducing the effect of currents on the boom’s position. Reinforced material at all the stress points increases its durability in arduous service.
