Ro-Boom is internationally acknowledged as one of the most effective, reliable and durable oil containment booms available today. Ro-Boom has earned this reputation in many spills and deployments.
Manufactured in a unique rubber moulding process Ro-Boom is an inflatable boom with high tensile strength and excellent sea-keeping abilities. When deflated it lies flat allowing for storage on reels with minimal volume. More than 800,000m have been supplied to oil companies, ports, terminals and oil spill bases. Ro-Boom is available in section lengths of up to 250m and nine sizes from 0.6 to 3.2m overall. It can be delivered with stainless steel hinges or ASTM connectors. Advances in the inflation process have lead to deployment times of less than 10 minutes for 200m with a trained crew.
Ro-Boom is made from a unique substrate compound of synthetic rubber with a hypalon external layer. This unique homogenous, single process construction has complete cross, hot vulcanisation of rubber and reinforcing fabrics. This seamless, flexible structure has very high abrasion resistance, peel resistance, tensile strength and will withstand the effects of sun, sea and oils which destroy many other booms.
The individual buoyancy chambers have separate air valves, which mean that in the unlikely case of puncture only one chamber will lose air, and not impair the integrity of the boom. The smooth surface of the deflated boom makes cleaning easier – several types of oil do not stick to the boom at all.
Advantages of Ro-Boom:
- A durable boom resistant to abrasion, oils and sunlight
- Individual air chambers for reliability and security
- Lies flat when deflated for easy storage and cleaning
- Stainless steel and hot galvanised components
- High visibility stripe
- Reels, containers and bags available
- Proven performance
- Rapid deployment
The Ro-Boom lies completely flat when deflated allowing for easy cleaning and storage.
