The skimmer head has two, 6 inch / 152.4 mm diameter drums connected to a 12V variable speed motor via gearbox. The High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) frame is fitted with rear and side floats, plus two, .75 inch / 19.05 mm drain ports, allowing collected oil to be drained by gravity from the skimmer. As an option, an external suction pump is available. The oil is scraped from the two rotating drums by wipers secured with stainless steel screws. If no power supply is available, simply hook up the oil skimmer to an automobile battery, and it will run for many days before needing a recharge. Where higher recovery rates are needed, we recommend our larger Elastec MiniMax drum oil skimmer which is available in pneumatic or hydraulic drive.
The skimmer frame and drums are manufactured in durable HDPE. The skimmer is delivered with a 12V regulator with battery clamps / plug and two lengths of .75 inch / 19.05 mm drain / suction hose.
Note: this skimmer is not for flammable materials or explosive atmospheres.
