Floating Baffle Curtain
Floating Baffle Curtain for Lagoons
Question From Richland, Washington: Hi, we are interested in the floating baffle curtain for lagoons. We were hoping you could tell us some additional information about these baffles. In particular, we would like to know if the skirt is made from HDPE?
Thank you for contacting us! Our Water Baffle is available for purchase and has been frequently used in lagoons to help improve Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and lower Total Suspended Solids (TSS) levels. Lowering these levels can help keep within permitted limits, avoiding troublesome situations.
These baffles are typically made from your choice of Elvaloy, PVC, or XR-5 (or equivalent) material. However, if you specifically require the HDPE material, we are also capable of designing the baffle to meet your specific needs or requirements.
Each floating baffle is then additionally equipped with marine grade floats that sit on top of the baffle and are encased entirely by fabric. The standard size for these floats is six (6) inches in diameter, although other float sizes are available to meet your specific site needs. To help them hold up throughout the duration of their use, these floats are made with marine-grade materials suitable for extended use in lagoon and water locations.
The depth and the shape of the skirt located on the baffle is typically built to meet requirements in your particular settings. In general, it is best if the skirt depth matches the depth of the high water elevation in your particular lagoon. Ends of these baffles are sloped at the 2:1 ratios 3:1 ratios or other ratios as specified by your slop requirements.
