Turbidity Curtain which is also called silt curtains is widely used in marine construction, dredging, and remediation projects for easy containment of silt and sediment in a water body. Silt Barriers are lightweight, durable, and can be easily set up around construction sites to protect the marine ecosystem. Silt Screens can be customized to work effectively well in calm waters as well as strong currents.
Turbidity curtains are manufactured from top-grade self-buoyant, polypropylene, and non-woven geotextile. These booms are also equipped with a 100mm float in the top pockets along with galvanized steel ballast weights to keep booms upright and prevent them from being run under by strong currents.
Each section of the booms is connected to each other by ASTM Universal Slides. These individual sections of the curtain can be firmly joined end-to-end through built-in eyelets and can be tightly sealed with the help of industrial Velcro. They are available in ready-to-install packaging.
Agastya Invention specializes in manufacturing turbidity curtains configured as per the information (environmental and hydraulic conditions) provided by our clients. Primary factors that play a vital role in determining the best-suited configuration are – water flow, wind loading, current loading, and impoundment loading. All these factors help to establish the required longitudinal strength and anchoring arrangements that will provide optimum utilization of the turbidity curtain.
