The Lamor Light Inflatable Oil Boom is extremely flexible and easy to handle when being deployed and recovered from its Boom Reel.
How it works
The Inflatable Light Oil Boom is commonly stored and deployed from a Boom Reel. Depending upon the size, typically each Boom Reel will store 250m (10 - 25m section lengths) of boom. As the boom is being deployed, the operator opens the valve by unscrewing the cap and filling the chamber with air. Once the chamber is full the operator will twist lock the air valve and screw the cap back on.
Once the ILB Boom is fully deployed it can be towed into several different types of response tactics such as a J or U sweeping configurations.
The ILB is manufactured in high visibility PVC-PU coated polyester fabric. The boom has separate air chambers that are fitted with Monsun XG 1 air valves. The boom is supplied with marine grade aluminum ASTM End Connectors in accordance with the F962 standard. The ballast chain is a hot-dip galvanized steel chain that provides the necessary strength for stable deployment in sweeping operations and provides excellent sea keeping properties.
