One of the most efficient and suitable applications for a Vessel of Opportunity (VOO) configuration is the Minimax 30 skimmer in aluminum, coupled with a Lamor GTA 50 oil transfer pump and a Power Pack LPP 58. The Multimax or the Minimax skimmers can alternatively be used.
The Manta Ray skimmers are fixed weir suction head oil recovery devices. They work best with vacuum and positive displacement pumping systems, such as diaphragm pumps that have air handling capability.
The Vacuum System (LVS) is a powerful portable vacuum unit with an integral cold water pressure sprayer. It is ideal for oil collection on land and shoreline applications, it can also be used for equipment decontamination and for cleaning tasks. The core components of the LVS standard package include: a twin cylinder air cooled diesel power ...
The Lamor Brush Adapter LBA (Patent Pending) is a brush-type oil recovery module designed to fit quickly and easily onto the hopper of a weir skimmer. The purpose of the device is to improve the overall recovery efficiency, i.e. reduce free water recovered with oil, and to improve the performance in very high viscosity oils.
The Schreiber Clarifiers are versatile and very durable peripheral drive clarifiers. The peripheral drive system utilizes leverage rather than center-drive torque to rotate the scraper and skimming assembly, resulting in a simplified mechanical system. The equipment necessary for the continuous removal of floatables and settled solids is suspended ...
Liquid / liquid separation. Performance: 300-1500 gph
The Bow Collector (LBC) is a stiff brush conveyor belt unit which effectively recovers oil and debris. The LBC operates most effectively at vessel speeds of 1 to 4 knots. Forward motion of the vessel concentrates surface oil and oily debris into the brush conveyor for separation and recovery.
Instead of using a separate crane for skimmer deployment, the Umbilical Hose Reel (LUT) can be equipped with a telescopic crane arm that can be operated by one person. The telescopic crane arm built according to NOFO standards enables deployment even from below deck through the side hatch.
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.
The oil removable is a liquid/solid separation operation. Oils and greases being generally lighter than water and naturally tend to rise to the surface. In order to speed up this process, an aerator placed in the centre of the well, diffuses fine bubbles which bring grease and oil particles to the surface. Before they solidify, they are leaded by ...
