Steel Mesh Boom Application: Intake Screen Protection

Underwater debris screen booms are sometimes used at intake screens to deflect logs, trash, ice, and sometimes even to prevent boats from being carried into the intake. Floating booms are installed an adequate distance upstream from high velocity zones that surround intakes. Boom is designed to divert logs, trash and other floating debris into a designated collection area like a spill way, dam over flow, trash sluiceway, or navigation lock.
