The TDS136 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.
