Elastec offers a choice of portable blowers for inflatable oil boom. These range from lightweight backpacks to high output diesel and hydraulic driven units.
The backpack inflator is typically used with smaller containment booms where they have to be carried, for example along a beach. These may be small inflatable oil booms or tidal compensator booms (ShoreMax).
For inflatable booms, such as the AirMax and RubberMax, the backpack inflator may be used, we can also offer diesel driven or hydraulically driven air blowers. The diesel engine offers a higher level of reliability and integrity when working from a ship. Our high output air blower-inflator can also be offered within a boom reel control stand.
