Vacuum & Dispersant Systems
Vacuum systems are portable and designed for use in locations such as sandy or rocky beach areas, ditches, marshlands, etc. and can be equipped with an optional pressure washer.
Dispersant spray systems are used when mechanical recovery is either unavailable or needs to be complemented with chemical dispersant. Vessel-mounted and hand held dispersant spray systems are available with a range of discharge capacities.
At Aqua-Guard, we do not encourage or recommend the use of dispersant chemicals until all mechanical methods (oil skimming) have been exhausted.
“The use of dispersant has limitations and its use should be carefully planned and controlled. Dispersant use will also depend upon national regulations governing the use of these products"—International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation Ltd - Dispersants.
