The oil Skimmer utilizes a unique floating tube method for oil pickup. The tube is made of flexible polymer, specially formulated to selectively attract oil only. The system continuously draws the oil covered tube in to the machine, the scraper assembly removes the oil and the clean tube returns to the liquid surface to collect more oil. Higher is the viscosity, higher is the retrieval rate. The Skimmer is operated by means of an electric motor (0.5 H.P) and an integral Gear-Box. The unit can operate unattended round-the-clock, day after day.
Simple, rugged and dependable, this unit offers many advantages over manual or any other skimming techniques.
