Arctic conditions are one of the most difficult environments for oil spill response operations. Elastec manufactures equipment to make this tough job easier. Our American Fireboom for insitu burning of oil (ISB) has been successfully tested in arctic conditions. Elastec Drum Skimmers are available with a steam heating system, and our SmartAsh portable incinerator is a source of heat while disposing of oily waste.

American Fireboom in the arctic

American Fireboom

American Fireboom is a fire resistant oil boom that was originally developed in conjunction with 3M and produced under license. Thousands of feet of this boom were supplied around the world for insitu burning (ISB) operations. This product is a first generation fire boom using ceramic floats.

Steam system oil skimmer

Steam Systems

Elastec drum oil skimmers are uniquely available with a steam heating system for arctic oil spill response. Steam coils can be installed in the collection trough and sump. Heat is provided by a generator housed in a special trailer.

SmartAsh portable incinerator


SmartAsh® cyclonic barrel burner is an innovative portable incinerator that meets EPA requirements for burning non-hazardous refuse. Simply load a 55 gallon (208 liter) open-head steel drum, light the load and clamp on the lid. A whirlwind of fire and intense heat is created inside the drum, burning refuse without smoke or smell. Combustion is complete, leaving 3% ash.
