The Sea Phoenix 600 boom is a medium sized air buoyancy boom. 760mm lay-flat height, inflates to 600mm overall height with 60mm endo connectors. The most popular size for marine spills as demonstrated by the 2010 Gulf of Mexico spill.
Used on inland waterways when maximum durability and protection are require, or in semi-protected marine applications. The excellent wave conforming properties of this boom and the absence of any rigid components in the boom itself make it ideal for all tidal locations. Made from very strong polyurethane, it will endure abrasion and aggressive environments.
The segmented boom is manufactured from fabricated, high frequency welded 1000 g/m² PU alloy double coated nylon fabric giving durable and excellent wear abrasion resistance for long life during arduous use. The ballast is provided by a galvanised steel chain incorporated in a reinforced keel pocket. This allows superior stability and wave following characteristics that impede ‘kiting’ and ‘bridging’. The enclosed galvanised chain also provides additional boom tension and strength. Splash flaps prevent ‘splash over’ of oil. The air chamber provides generous freeboard, as well as allowing compact storage when deflated. Gas tight Monsun valves enable inflation, and maintain pressure over many months of use. Each boom section length uses reinforced connectors to allow connection to other booms, tow bridle, or mooring anchor systems.
