Magnum 100

The Magnum 100 is another well proven drum oil skimmer from Elastec(Specs). The lightweight Magnum 100 is one of the highest performance-tested skimmers available. It is suitable for both oil spill response and industrial applications. The lightweight design combined with the stability and high buoyancy provided by the four drums enable the Magnum 100 to be used in harbors and coastal waters as well as inland areas such as rivers and lakes.

CE mark

The original design concept was patented in 1990. Thousands of Elastec drum skimmers have been sold worldwide and proven themselves both in emergency response but also industrial applications. The fact that the skimmer is suitable for continuous duty is a testament to the design concept.

Elastec drum skimmers are able to recover a wide range of oils and sheen, from diesel to crude and fuel oils.

The skimmer features heavy-duty high density Polyethylene drums, which are resistant to impact and abrasion. They not only serve as the rotating oleophilic element that selectively recovers the oil from water, they also provide buoyancy for the skimmer. The skimmer can draw oil in from all directions. The drum material is resistant to many chemicals found in industrial pits, sumps, separators and tanks. The self-adjusting wiper blades recover oil from the face and side of the drums as they rotate. The wipers can easily be replaced without tools.

Drive is provided for the drums by a pair of centrally mounted gearboxes (provides even weight distribution), these gearboxes provide the torque necessary to turn the drums in heavy oils as well as allowing for fine control of the drum speed. The drum shafts are supported by self-aligning bearings. This is all mounted in a lightweight anodized marine grade aluminum frame with open and steeply inclined pathways that direct recovered oil to the central collection sump.

The open design facilitates cleaning and removal of any debris or trash. A removable trash screen prevents larger items entering the recovered oil pump.

The Magnum 100 is capable of recovering both light and heavy oils with very low water content – typically around only 3%. It may be fitted with either an air or hydraulic drive motor. We offer a choice of pumps to suit the application.

The skimmer may be fitted with steam coils as an option to provide heat that warms the oil that’s being recovered (to aid pumping and prevent freezing) as well as melting ice surrounding the skimmer.

The Magnum 100 is offered with either the original smooth drums or the latest patented Grooved Drums which can achieve higher oil recovery rates. The Grooved Drum design has been extensively tested by the Ohmsett test facility and researched by the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The skimmer may be supplied with pneumatic or hydraulic motor with a choice of recovered oil pumps – air operated diaphragm, hydraulic driven submersible (E150 or ES400) or diesel driven lobe pump. Hydraulically operated skimmers may be delivered with a diesel or electric driven hydraulic power pack.

Elastec pneumatic skimmers are fitted with air motors that conform to EC Directive 94/9EC (ATEX 100a) for zones 1 and 2 (Group II, category 2, Gas and Dust Atmospheres) and a maximum surface temperature of 275 F / 135 C.

Pneumatic Configurations

The Magnun 100 skimmer can be powered by compressed air. Fitted with two air motors, coupled to the drums with a gearbox, the drums can be turned at low speeds if necessary to recover light oil layers. The recovered oil pump (air operated diaphragm), can be remotely located (on the pond or river bank), alternatively it can be mounted on the skimmer itself, for high head applications.
