Due to its shallow draft and light weight, the ELASTEC TDS118 is ideal for cleanup in creeks, rivers and lakes. It is equally at home in an industrial American Petroleum Institute (API) separator. It is capable of recovering a wide range of oils. The TDS118 has been tested at Ohmsett to substantiate its nameplate capacity and efficiency. Two frame materials are available depending on the nature of your application.

This skimmer is widely used in the Palm Oil industry for the recovery of waste oils. TDS118 is capable of withstanding these temperatures as well as the corrosive conditions.
PE / CRX
For acidic environments the polyethylene construction may be used while the shafts and bearings are upgraded to stainless steel. For the copper mining industry, recovering organic oils in acidic ponds, we offer the CRX model, which has upgraded components.
Elastec offers a full lineup of innovative Grooved Drum, Brush and Discs inserts for our well-proven range of skimmers. These inserts represent patented technology that not only enhance recovery rates, but also expand the viscosity range that can be collected. All inserts retain the lightweight and shallow draft features of the skimmer head that is so popular with responders. Drum inserts are interchangeable in the field with minimal tools and effort. The skimmers can be supplied with just brush or disc or drum setup as per preference and requirement. Brush and disc assemblies can be dismantled for decontamination / cleaning.
