Silt Containment Booms
Silt Containment Booms are non-absorbent oil booms and feature a fine bottom netting at the skirt to control the dispersion of silt and turbidity in the surrounding water bodies.
his kind of oil booms is normally used in sites engaged in marine construction. Curtain oil booms are used as basic model and fitted with an additional filter net with free choice of length. The height of the net can considerably exceed the effective draft of the oil boom. Care must be taken to ensure that the oil boom chosen is buoyant enough in oder to bear the additional weight of the netting and, as a consequence, the action of stronger flow forces.
