Oil Tank Skimmer
Elastec manufactures oil skimmers for industrial applications to skim oil from pits, ponds, lagoons, and separators. A number of our customers have used our skimmers for cleaning tanks and sumps. We have recently expanded our product line with a new tank oil skimmer called the “Hermit Skimmer.” This single drum oil skimmer has the unique ability to maneuver through a restrictive opening only 20 inches / 500mm diameter. The application for such a skimmer is in non-hazardous oily water tanks, above or underground. It can also be used in ships for bilge water, salvage or ballast water cleaning.
As with all confined space operations safety is paramount and our equipment should not be used in confined spaces without appropriate precautions.
Vacuum Trailer Systems
Our vacuum trailers are referred to as PACS units. The acronym stands for Portable Air Conveyance System, the process of moving materials with high air flow. We manufacture vacuum trailers with ATEX rated and water-cooled vacuum pumps, providing higher levels of protection and the ability to pull high levels of vacuum for long periods of time without overheating.
Easy to tow and maneuver in congested workspaces, these rugged vacuum systems are purpose-built to clean up oil, liquids, solids, and sludge. Our trailer mounted vacuum systems are designed to go where large vacuum trucks can’t, and for jobs where vac trucks are not cost effective.
Tank cleaning operators may require the use of temporary oil storage devices like our Quicktanks. The QuickTank is a complete portable storage facility developed for rapid deployment and temporary storage of liquids. It has a supporting aluminum frame with a liner that is constructed of oil resistant, high-strength materials. All of our QuickTanks are portable and come with a carrying case and instructions.
