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 ability to free-wheel to speed up deployment. Our boom reels may be hydraulic or manually operated and are suitable for both inflatable boom and some models of foam flotation boom.
Since 1967, Elastec has manufactured floating booms and barriers through its acquisition of American Marine in Cocoa, Florida. We manufacture floating containment boom for oil spill response, floating trash, debris, and aquatic weed control. For storage, we offer a line of boom reels. For silt and sediment control during dredging and marine construction projects, we manufacture a complete line of turbidity curtains. We also offer the BoomVane™ to aid in the deployment of containment boom in moving water or with a vessel.
