The Oil Skimmers Model 6V oil recovery system removes waste oil by means of a specially formulated collector tube. Oil adheres to the outside of the closed-loop tube as it is slowly drawn across the surface of the water and into the oil skimmer.
The tube snakes over and around floating debris, adjusting automatically to changing water levels. The tube is drawn up into the oil skimmer and through scrapers that remove the oil. Then the tube returns to the water surface to collect more oil. The recovered oil flows into a collection container. The Model 6V system removes as much as 100 gallons of waste oil per hour; the recovered oil is virtually water-free.
The length of the collector tube is customized to meet individual specifications. Experienced representatives are available to survey customers' oil removal needs. Engineered For Headache-Free Operation The external parts of the Oil Skimmers Model 6V unit - the drive wheel, scrapers, and pressure blocks -- are made of high abrasion-resistant ceramic. Gearings are engineered to require minimal power and maintenance. Its thoughtful design and durable construction ensure the Model 6V system an operational life span of 25-30 years. Many units have been in service for more than 25 years and are still going strong.
The Oil Skimmers Model 6V oil recovery system has been designed to operate continually and unattended as it removes animal, vegetable and petroleum-based oils, fats and greases that float on the surface of water.
The Model 6V system also can be outfitted with insulation and heating packages for cold weather operation.
