Oil skimmer

Oil skimmer model W40

The oil skimmer model W40 is designed to remove floating oil from all kind of basins with a minimum width of 800 mm. The lengths of the basin can be up to 20 m and more.

The innovative working principle makes sure that the oil is removed from total surface of the basin.

The oil collector tube creates a movement on the water surface. The floating oil is driven towards the oil collector tube. The oil sticks to the outside of the oil collector tube and will be drawn into the oil skimmer. Special high wear resistant ceramic scrapers remove the oil from the surface of the oil collector tube and the oil floats into a waste oil collecting tank.

The oil skimmer can be mounted up to 600 mm above water surface.

Because of the tough design the oil skimmer model 2H can operate continuously 24 h a day. In order to avoid wear, all parts that touch the oil collector tube are made of high abrasive resistant ceramic. The oil skimmer is made of corrosion resistant stainless steel.

Depending on the viscosity and thickness of the oil layer the capacity of the oil skimmer reaches up to 230 l of oil per hour. Many different options allow you to adapt the oil skimmer model W40 to nearly all kind of applications.
