Six oil spill booms produced by five manufacturers for use as fire booms were tested at the Minerals Management Service's Ohmsett Facility, NWS-Earle, Leonardo, NJ. The tests were conducted between July 16, 1996 and October 4, 1996. The booms were tested for: first loss tow speed, oil loss rate, and critical tow speed. No fires were used during these tests. Four of the booms performed within speed and rate loss ranges that have been measured for commercial non-fire booms. One boom was found to be superior in critical tow speed. However, this boom was at the lower edge of the range for first loss tow speed. A prototype boom, with a unique paddle-wheel operating principle, was the sixth boom included in the study. This boom was found to need further development.
