Double Tube Boom System

Controlling the flow of contaminated water and other dangerous liquids is a serious problem which faces every Fire Brigade today. Erecting sandbag or earth dams is often totally ineffective.

Our basic idea has been to use the weight of water itself to make an effective and workable dam, preventing the uncontrolled outflow of liquids.The boom can be used as a large spillage container. The double chambered nature of the boom prevents it from rolling away: the laws of physics are used to great effect! Easily handled by a small staff, quickly installed and effective over every terrain, the ÖKO-TEC Double-tube-boom is superbly conceived. The Double-tube-boom is made from extremely tear and chemical resistant polyethylene. The diameter of the larger tube is 40 cm, the smaller 20 cm.

The minimal amount of storage space required and a total weight of less than 100 kg for the whole unit makes the new system ideal for every Fire Service.

Use on water

The task: The result of accidents with oil on water are often special problems. Most important is how to contain the spill in the shortest time, while insufficient manpower and inappropriate materials are available.

The solution: The Double-Tube-Boom, already described for its use on land, is an ideal boom for protection against oil in calm and flowing waters. The large tube is filled with air, drawn across the water and firmly anchored. Because the boom has little weight and little depth in the water, it has little or no resistance to the water flow, and can therefore be moved by a small crew, without getting out powerful pulling equipment. Once the boom is in position the small tube has to be filled with water, submerging the unit at least 18 cm into the water. When the job is finished, the whole system can be removed quickly and efficiently by the same small crew.

How It’s used: It is recommended to first unroll the required length of boom material on land. The boom should be filled with air from any available air blower. Connectors for any kind of blowers same as exhaust injectors are available upon request. The Double-Tube-Boom is simple to operate and use on water. Only two men are needed at the boom end. Because of the light weight and the easy roll-out procedure using the reel, the Double-Tube-Boom can be quickly brought into the desired position. Using connectors, available on request, several boom sections can be joined together. A special problem connected with oil booms arises usually where they are attached to the shore. The water-filled small diameter tube easily follows any terrain. As the water and air filled tube will follow wave movements, a spilling of oil over its top is virtually impossable.

Use on land

A Liquid Boom

A mobile system for controlling the flow of fire-fighting water is now reality! Dangerous liquids and contaminants are kept back, held in one area in all terrains. The system ties up few crewmen -two is adequate- and because the Double-Tubed-Boom can be used in the length needed at the time, it is cost effective in use.

Once the required length of boom material has been unrolled, it can be cut off and the end closed off, or the remaining material can be left on the reel. If the boom has to be extended or formed into a circle, one simply lays the two ends of the boom one over the other.
