The VikoSeal booms should be used in pairs to ensure maximum containment of oil. A paired formation will allow one to be positioned adjacent to the ships forward fender and one to be positioned adjacent to the ships aft fender.
VikoSeal resembles an 'H' shape to seal against ship hulls or hull to dockside. It is fitted with heavy duty wear pads, designed to give a high abrasion resistance and long service life and is easy to adjust for tidal variations.
Vulcanised using reinforced, double faced neoprene fabric which guarantees the booms seam integrity and a high abrasion, chemical and environmental damage resistance.
The boom consists of a high capacity inflation fitting, located in the forward buoyancy chamber. Air pressure within each chamber is automatically maintained at 0.2bar using pressure relief valves.
High pressure compressed air is converted into high volume air flow to inflate the boom via a unique venturi mechanism. Air inflation and deflation is controlled using the hand operated control valves n the control panel.
Easy handling from dockside or ship. No required personnel needed at water level. Fitted with a lifting strop and supplied with forward and aft guidelines, allows deployment from the vessel deck r at dock level and easy inflation using the ships compressed air system once the boom is in position. The booms design allows it to work effectively in conjunction with standard Yokohama Fenders.
Complete with a galvanised, long link ballast chain in a reinforced skirt pocket, provides the boom with high tensile strength and good underwater profile, ensuring maximum oil retention.
