Steam Heating of Drum Oil Skimmers
Elastec Drum Oil Skimmers are uniquely available with
a Steam Heating System for arctic oil spill response. Steam coils can be
installed in the collection trough and sump. Heat is provided by
a generator housed in a special trailer.
The heat transferred by the steam helps the oil skimmer
to function by melting the snow and ice surrounding the skimmer
allowing the oil to flow onto the collection drums. It also warms
the oil that is being picked up aiding the flow to the transfer
pump and preventing the hoses from freezing during arctic oil spill response.
The steam generator is packaged with water tank and
pump in a custom trailer for ease of transport to the spill site.
We can supply a complete heated oil skimmer system including
steam coils, steam generator etc or simply the coils that can be
fed by other heat sources.
