TDS136

The Elastec TDS136 floating drum oil skimmer (Specs) is designed for continuous duty in oil spill or industrial applications. The TDS136 skimmer is ideal for response operations in shallow waters such as creeks, rivers, and lakes as well as in harbors and near-shore incidents. The TDS136 has been tested at Ohmsett to substantiate its nameplate capacity and efficiency. View our guide for drum oil skimmer configurations.

The TDS136 floating drum oil spill skimmer is capable of recovering both light and heavy oils with very low water content, typically 2 to 3%. This model can be supplied with our ES400 helical screw pump for heavy oil transfer, our E150, or air operated diaphragm pump.

The TDS136 has the same shallow draft and lightweight design of the TDS118 and offers twice the verified nameplate capacity. The motor, gearbox and drums are capable of thousands of hours of trouble-free operations. The scrapers are self-adjusting to allow for wear. A tough guard can be fitted to the front of the oil skimmer. The oil skimmer is available with hydraulic or pneumatic motor.

Elastec grooved drum skimmers were used in a test at Ohmsett to determine if skimming operations are possible for fresh and weathered Bakken oil.

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.

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.
