Mark II Oil Boom

The Mark II Oil Boom is the most widely used design today. With its upper and lower tension members it provides greater tensile strength for towing, sweeping, containment and diversion of a spilled product. Like all Mark II boom series, this boom can be deployed from a workboat, barge, boxed or open trailer, or right from the dock. This boom is ideal for use in waters that range from slight chop to choppy. Able to be towed with small boats in lengths up to 1,000 feet.  It conforms well to the surface and its overall strength works very well for containing light debris, soft ice, and, of course, spilled product.

 

 

 


 

MK II A Oil Boom

Mark II-A Wetlands Boom

The Mark II-A Boom System is ideal for shallow water applications such as swamps, beaches, or wetlands. With its high tensile strength and shorter draft, this boom can be towed with a jon-boat in shallow waters. The heavier ballast allows the skirt area to hug the contour of the bottom and give you maximum containment of the spilled product or debris. Ideal for locations with slight to moderate chop on the water, this boom will provide a high degree of stability.

 

 

 

 


 

 

Mark II-B Contractors Boom

Mark II-B, or Contractors Boom, is a boom system with a slightly higher freeboard, deeper draft and greater overall tensile strength. Towing capabilities can range up to 1,000 feet depending on severity of conditions. Excellent properties for using as a diversionary boom, yet still light enough for deployment by as few as (2) people. Containment capabilities of product and debris are outstanding in moderately choppy conditions.

Mark II-C Nearshore\Offshore Boom

Used mainly off a coastline, this boom has a higher freeboard area to maximize its buoyancy and contour over large waves or swell in open water. Also with a much deeper draft, this boom can maintain containment of heavy crude spills in the harshest seawater; this boom can also be deployed from a large workboat platform or barge with minimum personnel. Overall performance remains high even in heavy debris or ice water conditions.
