Triton Type 2 turbidity curtain is ideal for medium workloads and can be stored easily on the deck of a vessel for repeat use. The main function of turbidity turbidity barriers is to control the dispersion of suspended silt and sediment and improve settling times (Stokes Law). This process protects aquatic habitats, fish, marine animals, and below surface water pollution.
