Weir skimmers operate by taking the surface layer off the water. Oil flows into the central hopper where it's pumped to storage. The weirs fitted in our Skater lineup are self-adjusting. The depth of the cut can be adjusted by varying the pumping rate. These affordable, high-capacity skimmers can skim any oil that will float and flow over the weir. They may be deployed in rivers, lakes, moon pools, tanks, pits, and lagoons, as well as the open ocean. Their unique design keeps draft to a minimum.
