Boom Reel Power Units
Elastec manufactures a range of
hydraulic power units for the operation of boom reels - from 9 to
20 hp ( 6.7 to 15 kW). These powerpack can be diesel or electrically
The size of the boom
reel power unit will depend on the size of the reel plus the
type and amount of boom the reel is carrying.
The boom reel power pack may be a relatively small
unit mounted on the front of the boom reel trailer or skid mounted
for use from the deck of a ship. Larger units may incorporate hydraulically
driven air blowers for the inflation of oil containment boom. Controls
for the boom reel may also be on the powerpack or the reel itself
depending on the system selected.
Electrically driven units are typically used in fixed
installations where the boom reel remains in one place. The motors
are offered with different enclosures and voltages.
