Floating Weir Oil Skimmer

These are free floating on the surface of the water, put it where you want it to pull in floating oil, debris, plastic, duckweed, algae, and anything else that floats, and is flowable. The FWS is connected to a hose connected to a pump on the shoreside. Your pump or vacuum system pulls suction from the skimmer sump (Camlock coupler or flanged outlet). With only one moving part, the hinged weir this one is hard to screw up. Works great with a vac truck or AOD pump or hose pump but will give you a LOT of water to deal with when you’re getting close to the interface.

Floating Weir Oil Skimmer

Very portable. Flow rates from 10-1500 GPM. It’s automatically self-adjusting and flow control. Never needs manual adjustment…EVER. You could take this skimmed product and run it into a separator or tank, and decant water back to the pit/tank. This skimmer is actually powered by your suction pump and it works with ANY pump that can pull suction.

Floating Drum Oil Skimmer

These sit right in the water — and are very well-engineered, rugged heavy duty skimmers in sizes that start off weighing about 100 lbs. (with hose) and can skim from 20 to over 100 gallons per minute when they are in heavy oil. This is the tool of choice for heavy skimming. Dimensions from 2 x 3′ to 3 x 8′. Can even have an onboard pump. These will move a LOT of oil fast.

These can be air drive (your compressed air), BUT the hydraulic drive systems (electric or diesel powered) are way more powerful — and will actually pull a whole pond’s worth of contiguous oil right into the skimmer. Of course, the hydraulics cost more, but oh do they work GREAT! Entry level $5K. A variety of pumps could be used to pump the oil from the sump. We can furnish it as a whole dedicated Oil Spill Response packaged skimmer system, with pump and hoses with quick, connects, etc.

Belt Oil Skimmer

These are fixed and mounted in one location — and work well when the oil is touching the belt, BUT no touch, no skim! Being motor driven they lift the oil from the surface to the wipe-off blades/scraper. Then the oil flows by gravity to some type of receptacle for transfer to? If you have to lift the oil very high, it does allow some oil to run back down the belt before it gets to the top where the wiper/scraper blade is.

Belt Oil Skimmer

And so it goes. But, eventually, you do get the oil. Belt sizes from 1-8″ wide and lengths to 100′ ft. are available with multiple heads (belts) with recovery rates to 50 GPH or more. Electric powered usually. Very reliable equipment — the belt is the consumable item here. This is a SELECTIVE skimmer and will give you little water to deal with.

Rop Mop Wringer Oil Skimmer

These are fixed and mounted in one location and air or electric motor driven. With a vertical-to-horizontal pulley system to reach across an area like a scale pit and pull oil from the other side (also fixed), this can remove a LOT of oil. The mop looks like a squirrel tail with lots of little hairs, which means a lot of surface area.

The mop is pulled and squeezed by at least 2 rubber rollers It will pick up a lot of oil but is maybe NOT the best choice when there are a lot of abrasive solids in the oil. The solids can chew up the rope mop and the squeeze rollers. This is one of the oldest skimming technologies, but very reliable equipment.

Tube Oil Skimmer

These are fixed and mounted in one spot but can be on a boom arm to reach out and grab oil. They have an oil-attracting tube (like a hose) with relatively little surface area, and if you’re lifting high, the oil can run down the hose/tube.

But, eventually, you do get it. Snakes the tube down onto the water surface where it attracts oil to it. Reliable equipment. Electric motor drive. Low flow — to maybe 60 GPH.
