Circus Skimmer

The Circus Skimmer is an inline oil skimmer that is coupled with river boom and harnesses water flow to separate the oil and water. The skimmer has a circular chamber that accumulates the oil and allows the water to exit the bottom. This skimmer is ideal for calm river conditions. Tested at Ohmsett (an independent test facility) it was able to recover 90% of oil at 2 knots.

This lightweight skimmer can be deployed by two men. It is readily transported in small vehicles. Once the oil naturally collects in the Circus chamber it can be sucked out by external pumps or vacuum trucks etc. The central self-adjusting weir adds another level of separation.

Rotation of the oil/water is generated by the river current. The circular flow in the chamber is created as the water entering the chamber is balanced by a corresponding flow exiting beneath the skimmer.

The Circus River skimmer can be deployed in conjunction with the BoomVane™ (optional extra) which will pull the deflection boom into the river.
