When problems arise concerning oil removal from wastewater, it is nice to know you are dealing with a company whose personnel have seen and solved thousands of applications across all industries.
Industries as diverse as steel, biodiesel, manufacturing, food processing, trucking service industries, wastewater treatment and utility – all face a simple, common problem: oily water.
Where water is used extensively at some point along the production process, either in cooling machinery, washing down equipment or playing a crucial part in the manufacturing process, problems occur when water picks up oil. And, regardless of whether the facility reuses the water or sends it to a city treatment plant, it has to be removed.
Many facilities, however, are not equipped to effectively remove oil.
The Benefits of Oil Skimmers
Tube skimmers from Oil Skimmers, Inc., are designed to quickly remove all types of floating waste oils, greases and fats from water surfaces, resulting in:
Manufacturing A Better Finished Product – Improved Product Quality
During the manufacturing process there are several points where oil contamination may become a problem.
When washing or machining parts, tramp oil will get into the wash water or coolant solution. Since this solution is continuously reused there is an increased possibility of oil being deposited onto the parts. This film in turn hinders the finishing process and mars the product surface. Oil skimming removes tramp oil and results in a cleaner product better prepared for painting, plating or other finishing.
Increased Production Efficiency
In addition to improved product quality, the continuous removal of oil from process fluids increases the life of the fluid resulting in:
Oil skimmers additionally increase filter life by eliminating oil that blinds the filter, causing premature changing. They prolong the life of your filters, further reducing operating costs by lengthening the time between changing. Oil Skimming makes the manufacturing process cleaner, more economical, efficient and cost-effective.
Improved Water Treatment Efficiency
Addressing Environmental Concerns
Skimmed Oils Have Value
Tube oil skimmers are designed to ensure consistent, even operation, regardless of the application. And when it comes to performance, tube skimmers consistently out-perform any other types of skimmers.
Tube oil skimmers run on a simple concept: continuously remove oil from the surface of the water using a closed-loop tube that floats on the surface of the water, attracting the floating oil or grease.
Oil adheres to the outside of the closed looped tube, which is continuously driven across the separator’s surface and through a set of scrapers that remove the oil, which is then drained into a collection tank.
Tube skimmers can efficiently remove all petroleum-based oil, fats, greases and oily wastes as well as animal and vegetable oils that float on the surface of water. Other skimmers can get clogged with floating debris, which creates an oily dam, preventing them from picking up oil and grease. However, tube skimmers have the ability to snake over, under and through debris to continuously pick up oil.
Floating tube oil skimmers are a practical solution, as they are:
Brill™ - Model 6V - Oil Skimmer
When it comes to oil skimming solutions, the Oil Skimmers Model 6V Brill™ oil skimming system is the dependable, cost-effective and uncomplicated solution for removing oily waste from water during the manufacturing and waste treatment process. The Oil Skimmers Model 6V waste oil recovery system removes animal, vegetable and petroleum-based oils, fats, greases, and oily wastes that float on the surface of water or other liquids. The unit removes ...
To maximize waste oil recovery, a decanter is often included as part of the total package. The decanter is designed to permit minute droplets of water removed by the skimming system to be returned to the area being skimmed.
