Oil skimmer

Oil skimmer model 1U

The oil skimmer model 1U is specially designed to remove floating oil from small coolant tanks and small degreasing baths with a surface of up to 1 m². The innovative working principle makes sure that the oil is collected at the total surface of the basin.

The oil collector tube creates a movement on the water surface. The floating oil moves on the water surface and will be attracted by the oil collector tube and transported into the oil skimmer. Scrapers inside the oil skimmer remove the oil from the surface of the oil collector tube. The oil runs from the scraper into the oil collecting pan and from there into a waste oil tank. The oil skimmer can be mounted up to 600 mm high above the water surface. Because of the tough construction, the oil skimmer model 1U can be used continuously. In order to avoid wear caused by particles like sand, chips and other in the oil, all parts of the oil skimmer that touch the oil collector tube are made of wear resistant ceramic or hardened stainless steel. All other parts of the oil skimmer expect the drive wheel are made of corrosion resistant stainless steel.

The oil skimmer model 1U can be adapted to nearly all applications. The angel of inclination is adjustable. Depending on viscosity and thickness of the oil layer, the oil skimmer model 1U has a capacity of up to 30 l of oil per hour. Many different options allow you to adapt the oil skimmer model 1U to nearly all kind of applications.


  • Fast payback because of longer lifetime for your coolant and degreasing bath
  • Low maintenance because of tough construction and wear resistant materials
  • Easy mounting because different mounting systems for different applications are available
  • Floating oil collector tube will follow changing water level
  • Because of the special design the oil skimmer model 1U can be used at nearly all kind of basin, whether round or square, open or closed, above or below ground

Typical applications:

  • Coolant tank at machine tools
  • Small degreasing bath
  • Waste water treatment plants
  • CNC metal working
  • Surface technology
  • Waste water treatment
  • plant construction

The oil skimmer comes with switch cable and plug and is ready to use.
