SeaSkater - self-adjusting weir skimmer
The SeaSkater is a self-adjusting weir oil skimmer,
it represents a significant step forward in weir skimmer design.
Conventional weir skimmers typically have the float frame under
the skimmer - the unique SeaSkater has it above to reduce draft.
The SeaSkater has large diameter floats to increase the water line
beam, combined with a lightweight design, results in a new generation
of weir skimmers with unparalleled responsiveness to wave movements.
The high buoyancy to weight ratio limits drastic changes in draft
due to oil skimmer loading.
The unique tubular aluminum frame is constructed with a triangular
rigid member to increase the impact resistance and strength of the
skimmer. The arms disconnect for shipping and storage.
The SeaSkater is fitted with our ES400 helical screw pump. This
pump is capable of handling heavy oils as well as running dry. This
pump can be removed from the skimmer and used for other duties.
The SeaSkater can be supplied as a complete system
with diesel hydraulic power
pack and hoses. It can also be powered by our Multipurpose
Elastec Skimmers from Elastec on Vimeo.
