Standard Guide for In-Situ Burning of Spilled Oil: Fire-Resistant Boom
|Publication Date:||10 October 2001|
|ICS Code (Fire-resistance of building materials and elements):||13.220.50|
This guide covers a set of criteria to evaluate the performance, material characteristics, and essential features of fire-resistant oil spill containment boom.
This guide covers two types of fire-resistant oil containment boom: those that are intrinsically fire-resistant through the use of fire-resistant materials, and those that provide fire-resistance through the use of coolants. This guide may not be fully applicable to other types of fire-resistant boom.
This guide is one of three related to in-situ burning of oil spills. Guide F 1788 addresses environmental and operational considerations, and Guide F 1990 addresses ignition devices.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.
