Keeping oil fields and oil pits clean and skimming oil from water is a continuous task. Oil field equipment such as drilling rigs, pumps, trucks and oil pits, require constant maintenance. Elastec manufactures a varied line of clean up products including vacuums, skimmers and boom to tackle rugged terrain and remote locations. Oil recovery involves using equipment to recover oil from pits and separate it from water. Oil recovery operations have had great success separating oil from water with Elastec’s line of drum skimmers including the TDS118, TDS136, and MiniMax. Our highly efficient drum skimmers recover oil from pits while only picking up as little as 2% water. Share your oil and gas field machinery challenges with us, and we’ll help you find a solution.
Oil Recovery Equipment
The Elastec TDS118 floating drum oil skimmer is available in pneumatic or hydraulic drive for oil spill response or industrial use. Due to its shallow draft and light weight, the TDS118 is ideal for cleanup in oil pits, catch basins, and oil sites. It is supplied with either an air or hydraulic motor. For hydraulically driven skimmers we can provide a diesel or electric driven power pack.
The Elastec TDS136 floating drum oil skimmer is designed for continuous duty in oil spill or industrial applications. The TDS136 skimmer is ideal for skimming oil in reclaim pits, catch basins and oil sites. The TDS136 has been tested at Ohmsett to substantiate its nameplate capacity and efficiency.
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 lightweight design, results in a new generation of weir skimmers.
Oil Field & Oil Pit Cleanup Equipment
The rugged, trailer mounted PACS vacuum system is purpose-built for removing oil, liquids, solids, and sludge from reclaim pits, catch basins, wastewater lagoons, tank cars, and oil sites. It is available in a variety of blower and vane configurations. It is approved for highway towing (NATM) and can be pulled with a pickup truck, fork truck or tractor.
SmartAsh cyclonic barrel burner is an innovative portable incinerator that meets EPA requirements for burning non-hazardous refuse. Simply load a 55 gallon (208 liter) open-head steel drum, light the load and clamp on the lid. A whirlwind of fire and intense heat is created inside the drum, burning refuse without smoke or smell. Combustion is complete, leaving 3% ash.
Simplex boom is an industry standard oil containment boom. Its lightweight and reliable construction makes it ideal for use in oil pits. Simplex is an inexpensive boom, yet it features a high buoyancy reserve provided by stable closed cell foam log floats. American Marine, a division of Elastec, has been manufacturing quality floating boom and barrier products since 1967.
The PermaFence containment boom is designed for permanent installations and minimum maintenance. It can be used in oil pits to contain oil where it can then be skimmed. This heavy-duty boom is capable of withstanding long-term deployments and the arduous conditions of permanent installations. Our specially molded foam filled floats have a unique design that greatly enhances the impact resistance while providing high buoyancy reserve. These floats are produced in HDPE material that provides excellent UV and abrasion resistance.
Oil spill absorbents are pads and booms that can be quickly deployed for spill response. They work by picking up and retaining the oil. The used absorbents can be safely burned on-site in the Elastec SmartAsh® cyclonic barrel burner. For small spills, absorbents may be used as the sole cleanup method, while for larger spills, they may be used to clean up residual oil that can not be reached by skimmers. Elastec offers several types of oil spill absorbents. We can also provide custom clean up response kits.
