Oil containment boom reels are the fastest and most efficient means for storage, deployment and recovery of longer lengths of boom. Most of our reels have the facility to free-wheel to speed up deployment.
Boom reels may be hydraulic or manually operated and are suitable for both inflatable boom and some models of foam flotation boom.
Elastec manufactures boom reel systems at our facility in Illinois according to ISO 9000 quality standard. They are thoroghly tested to ensure they can carry the loads associated with this type of operation. These reels can be supplied with aluminum or steel spool, with and without controls, with and without brakes. They may also be fitted with guide rollers to help distribute the boom on the spool.
