DESMI Pumping Technology A/S
GlobeBoom® range is unique in many ways. It can be used as a fast response boom or for permanent installations. It can even be stored on a reel thanks to the special high density polyethylene (HDPE) round floats that can easily nest.
The floats are of a hemi-spherical design and are extremely abrasion and crush resistant. Each globe has a cast handle that allows for easy handling. Attached to both sides of the boom, they create excellent stability and also minimise reactionary forces being transmitted to the fabric generated by wave action. This also means the boom is more responsive to short period waves. Thus the globe float is far better than an enclosed or bolted square float configuration. GlobeBoom® also resists the planing failures and has operationally outperformed all other designs in its class for the difficult and demanding fast water and river applications.
However, GlobeBoom® is equally at home in sheltered waters and can be deployed without power packs, reels or inflators making it a superb first response option.
