Mini Skimmer skimming cooking oil in tank

Mini Skimmer

A small selective floating drum oil skimmer driven by a 12V motor, the Elastec Mini Skimmer is ideal for marinas, ponds, streams and small industrial tanks for recovering light oils such as lube oil, hydraulic, diesel and sheens. It can be run from a low voltage power source, such as a car battery or plugged into a 110V / 220v outlet.

The Elastec MiniMax is a robust and reliable drum oil skimmer designed for industrial and food oil processing applications. The standard skimmer frame is manufactured in High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), making it resistant to many chemicals found in lagoons, sumps, separators and oil pits. For food processing applications, the MiniMax can be manufactured with a stainless steel frame and drums for resistance to chemicals and high temperatures.

TDS118 skimming oil


The Elastec TDS118 floating drum oil skimmer is available in pneumatic or hydraulic drive for oil spill response or industrial use. Due to its shallow draft and light weight, the TDS118 is ideal for cleanup in creeks, rivers and lakes. It is supplied with either an air or hydraulic motor. For hydraulically driven skimmers we can provide a diesel or electric driven power pack.
