Choosing a Floating Boom Barrier

Regardless of whether you're using a debris barrier, oil spill boom or turbidity curtain, taking your water conditions into account is an important step in determining the right marine boom for your location. Factors you will want to consider typically include:

  • Type of Water Location (lake, pond, river, stream, etc.)
  • Water Velocity
  • Waves and Tides (are they present? how often? what size?)
  • What type of Material is Being Contained (oil, silt, debris, logs, ice)

Containment and Absorbent Marine Booms

For containment of oil and hydrocarbons, GEI Works offers both a standard floating containment boom and an oil absorbent boom. Both products feature a flexible shape that allows them to curve around spills and leaks.

  • Standard Oil Booms- A classic containment boom often used in large spill clean up activities. These oil booms will hold oil to a site until skimmers and other clean up methods are underway.
  • Absorbent Booms- Often used on smaller water or land based sites. These oil booms contain and absorb oil during clean up.

Using Containment Booms in your Location

Depending on your location and protection requirements, a containment boom can be installed in various manners to direct or block items.

Booms can be installed along shorelines to direct debris for easy cleanup. A containment boom can also be installed across intake openings to prevent unwanted items from entering.
