1.1 This practice provides a standard practice for the joining of oil spill containment boom connectors in emergencies.
1.2 The use of this connection method may adversely affect the total tensile strength of the connected booms.
1.3 These criteria are intended to define mating requirements that will allow the emergency or occasional connection of unlike connectors.
1.4 This practice is not intended to replace Specification F962.
1.5 This practice does not address the compatibility of spill control equipment with spill products. It is the user''s responsibility to ensure that any equipment selected is compatible with the anticipated spilled material.
1.6 There is no guarantee that all of the connectors in use today can accept the holes spaced as required without interfering with existing bolt holes or other connector features.
1.7 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. See Note 5 in Fig. 1
1.8 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 limitations prior to use. For a specific precautionary statement, see 3.2.
