For hydraulically driven skimmers we can provide a diesel or electric driven power pack.
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.
Oil spill absorbents are pads and booms that can be quickly deployed for spill response. They work by picking up and retaining the oil. The used absorbents can be safely burned on-site in the Elastec SmartAsh® cyclonic barrel burner. For small spills, absorbents may be used as the sole cleanup method, while for larger spills, they may be used to clean up residual oil that can not be reached by skimmers. Elastec offers several types of oil spill absorbents. We can also provide custom clean up response kits.
