Oil is transported through pipelines all over the world. Safety is the pipeline industry’s number one priority, which is why most pipeline environmental managers prefer Elastec oil spill recovery equipment. From inland to subsea environments, Elastec manufactures reliable and ready oil spill equipment for crude oil and refined petroleum pipeline response.
Oil spill absorbents are pads and booms that can be quickly deployed for spill response. They work by picking up and retaining the oil. The used absorbents can be safely burned on-site in the Elastec SmartAsh® cyclonic barrel burner. For small spills, absorbents may be used as the sole cleanup method, while for larger spills, they may be used to clean up residual oil that can not be reached by skimmers. Elastec offers several types of oil spill absorbents. We can also provide custom clean up response kits.
BoomVane™ is a welcome advancement in oil spill cleanup technology, simplifying the challenges of boom deployment in fast water and from advancing vessel systems. It combines the science of sailing and the art of flying a kite, powered only by the water’s current. Elastec holds multiple international patents for the original BoomVane.
DrumIt is a drum-top vacuum head that attaches to a 55 gallon drum allowing liquids and wet solids to be intercepted and stored. It features an automatic shut off and adjustable vacuum relief valve. A ball lifts in the sight glass to indicate when the drum is full. DrumIt fills each drum to a consistent level every time.
In the summer of 2010, we supported the controlled burn effort in the Gulf of Mexico to minimize the impact from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Several models of fire resistant oil boom were deployed in the early stages of the in-situ burning operation. Elastec American Fireboom and Hydro-Fire® Boom were responsible for the longest continuous burns and for eliminating the largest amount of oil from the marine environment. American Fireboom is constructed of fire-resistant ceramic materials.
Elastec manufactures a wide range of hydraulic power units to operate boom reels, oil skimmers and pumps. These power units are available with both diesel or electric drives. The electric models may also be delivered in explosion-proof configuration for use in oil refineries and other hazardous locations.

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.
