Magnum 100

The high buoyancy provided by the four drums of the Elastec Magnum 100 oil skimmer (Specs) provides stability in open water. Equally efficient in rivers and lakes, the lightweight Magnum 100 is one of the highest performance-tested skimmers available. This patented design uses the molded rotating drums both as collection units and floats, overcoming the need for heavy and expensive auxiliary flotation units and frames. The Magnum 100 has been tested at Ohmsett to substantiate its nameplate capacity and efficiency. View our guide for drum oil skimmer configurations. Fill out our questionnaire and tell us about your project.

CE mark

The Magnum 100 is available with a choice of drives and oil recovery pumps. The offloading pump may be mounted on the oil skimmer for high head applications. It is available with a hydraulic or pneumatic motor. The lightweight aluminum frame is anodized for superior corrosion protection. It may be used in industrial applications and also harbor and coastal environments. A wave breaker can be fitted for open waters to help prevent splash-over into the skimmer sump.

The Magnum 100 is capable of recovering both light and heavy oils with very low water content, typically around only 2%. The motor, gearbox, and drums are capable of thousands of hours of trouble-free operation. The scrapers are self-adjusting to allow for wear.

Even with this large design, the weight and draft of the oil skimmer is minimal. The simple construction and lightweight anodized frame will provide many years of service.

As with other models of Elastic floating drum oil skimmers, we can provide the Magnum 100 with the latest Grooved Drum technology to enhance oil recovery.

Electric Hydraulic Configurations

Skimmer with electric hydraulic power pack

Electric supply with MiniMax skimmer

The electric motor drives a hydraulic pump ( power pack ) which in turn provides hydraulic oil under pressure to drive the drums. The skimmed oil is drained from the back of the skimmer. The electric motor can be supplied with TEFC or Explosion Proof motor.

Electric hydraulic with submersible pump

Suction pumps have a limited suction lift, therefore in situations such as pits a submersible pump is coupled to the back of the skimmer that can pump the skimmed oil greater distances.

Pneumatic Configurations

Skimmer and Oiler Filter Kit

Pneumatic skimmer configuration

Compressed air is provided by the site. Oil collected by the drum is drained into a slotted pipe (API) or other.

Skimmer, Oiler Filter Kit and pump

Pneumatic skimmer configuration with pump not on top

For situations where it is not possible to drain the recovered oil, an air operated diaphragm pump is included in the setup. Compressed air is provided by the site.

Skimmer, Oiler Filter Kit and mounted pump

Pneumatic skimmer configuration with pump on top

Suction pumps are only able to draw up to 29 ft vertically, therefore in situations such as pits the pump is mounted on the skimmer and can pump vertically a greater distance. Compressed air is provided by the site.

Skimmer and Oiler Filter Kit with vac truck

Pneumatic skimmer configuration with vac truck

Compressed air is provided by the brakes from a vacuum truck. Oil collected by the drum sucked directly into the truck using its vacuum system.
