ALASKA CHADUX CORPORATION

Chadux is a member-funded, nonprofit oil spill removal organization (OSRO) headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska. It was founded 22 years ago exclusively to maintain, operate and assist in the control, containment and cleanup of petroleum products in Alaska. Chadux is a signatory and participant in the Alaska Nonprofit OSRO Memorandum of Understanding with all five major Alaska OSRO’s. The company provides oil spill response compliance for 72 members that operate barges, tank vessels, non-tank vessels, rail cars, pipelines, tanker trucks, and exploratory drilling rigs throughout Prince William Sound and Western Alaska.

The Network is a member of Chadux and our membership provides Network enrollees access to all Chadux response resources in Prince William Sound and in Western Alaska. Visit Chadux’s website.

Ocean Boom (>42")

Used to contain, divert, or exclude oil in open water conditions. Chadux ocean boom comes in various sizes from 42” to 48” and is a mix of foam filled and inflatable types.

Harbor Boom (18" to 26")

Used to contain, divert, or exclude oil from areas in calm water conditions. Chadux harbor boom comes in various sizes from 18” to 26”. Most Chadux harbor boom is foam filled with a 12” to 14” skirt and a toptension cable.

Shore Seal Boom

Used to create a seal at the shoreline when deploying containment boom. Shore seal boom has two water-filled chambers at the bottom and an air-filled chamber at the top.

Lamor 50 Skimmer

An oleophilic brush skimmer that may be used in stationary or advancing modes. Brushes rotate and lift oil from the surface of the water, thus minimizing the collection of water. Unit has DOP or lobe pump to move recovered product to storage.

Lamor 30 Skimmer

An oleophilic brush skimmer that may be used in stationary or advancing modes. Brushes rotate and lift oil from the surface of the water, thus minimizing the collection of water. Unit has DOP pump to move recovered product to storage.

Lamor 12 Skimmer

A portable oleophilic brush skimmer that is best used in a stationary mode. Brushes rotate and lift oil from the surface of the water, thus minimizing the collection of water. Powerpack has a double diaphragm pump to move recovered product to storage.

Desmi Minimax Skimmer

A shallow draft weir type skimmer for use on light viscosity oils. Skimmer head acts as an oil-water separator for thick deposits of oil, which is then pumped into storage. Deploy in calm waters.

C24 Rope Mop Skimmer

A stationary oleophilic skimmer that employs a polyethylene mop to lift oil from the surface of the water, thus minimizing the collection of water. Mop is powered by a Yanmar diesel engine. Recovered fluids drain into a sump for transfer into temporary storage.

Skimpak 18000 Skimmer

A shallow draft weir type skimmer for use on light viscosity oils. Skimmer head acts as an oil-water separator for thick deposits of oil, which is then pumped into storage. Deploy in calm waters.

Aquaguard Triton RBS 35 Skimmer

A portable oleophilic brush or drum skimmer that may be used in both stationary and advancing modes. The brushes or drum rotate and lift oil from the surface of the water, thus minimizing the collection of water. Chadux has two variations of this skimmer that have different EDRC values due to the pump capacity.

Elastec TDS-118 Skimmer

A portable oleophilic drum skimmer that is best used in a stationary mode. Grooved drum rotates and lifts oil from the surface of the water, thus minimizing the collection of water. The unit is driven by a hydraulic powerpack and accompanied by a separate pump to move recovered product to storage.

Vikoma Star Mk II Skimmer

An oleophilic disc skimmer that is best used in a stationary mode. Steel discs rotate and lift oil from the surface of the water, thus minimizing the collection of water.

ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Alaska Chadux Corporation has a Memorandum of Understanding among the other Alaska-based oil spill removal organizations (OSROs) to coordinate and share oil spill response resources as a means of bringing additional resources to bear during a spill response. The signers of the MOU are from: Alaska Chadux Corporation, Alaska Clean Seas, Alyeska/SERVS, Cook Inlet Spill Prevention & Response Inc. (CISPRI), and Southeast Alaska Petroleum Resource Organization (SEAPRO).
