The Elastec / MARCO Portable FilterBelt Skimmer is available in several lengths and is packaged with a hopper, hydraulic hoses and mounting assemblies. Options available are diesel-driven hydraulic power units, recovered oil transfer pumps, FilterBelt pads (for light oil) and trash/debris sacks. The skimmer is compatible with Elastec’s D10 hydraulic power pack.
The Portable FilterBelt Skimmer can be deployed over the bow or the side of the vessel – to empty a boom sweeping system, for example. Its unique ability to handle debris-laden oil alleviates one of the most challenging recovery obstacles that responders encounter.
A 2015 U.S. Government report, “Oil Pollution Research and Technology Plan” issued by the Interagency Coordinating Committee on Oil Pollution Research (ICCOPR), concluded that research on “equipment and techniques to manage and dispose of oil, oily water, oiled soils,and oiled debris recovered during both on-water and on land oil pollution incidents” is a priority.
