Automated can plants that need clean metal to manufacture metal cans depend on belt mop skimmers to continuously remove oil from wash water and the belt mop skimmer is perfect. Simple design and low maintenance results in a dependable way to remove oil while improving product quality.
The food processing industry also has a broad range of applications for oil skimmer and waste oil recovery technology. From wash water sumps to waste water treatment pits, the AMBAR rope skimmer is versatile enough to be used in all types of applications and outperforms tube oil skimmer products.
Removing oil and saving coolant is the motto of the belt mop oil skimmer. Ambar skimmers offer the highest surface contact area of any skimmer on the market which means CNC machines see less tramp oil and cleaner coolant.
AMBAR has supplied oil skimmers to the steel industry for over 25 years. The most common application for the Oil Mop skimmer is the removal of oil and grease form scale pits. Other applications include cooling ponds, retention ponds, in-ground sumps and waste water treatment pits. The advantage that AMBAR Environmental`s Oil Mop skimmers have over its competition is its versatility in a wide variety of applications. With the use of Tail Pulleys or Rollers, Rope Mop can be routed to provide excellent coverage of a...
Ambar’s belt mop oil skimmer is ideal for the API separators because the mop can cover the entire width of the API thus giving the oil no place to hide. The recovered oil can gravity drain from the oil skimmer or it can be pumped to a near by oil storage container. The end result is recycled oil, improved efficiency and lower operating costs.
The Mop type Oil Skimmer has many submissions in refinery plants. Some applications are comprised of cooling ponds, waste water, storage tanks etc. Due to its flexibility the Mop Skimmer can be functional to nearly any application during a refining plant where the fluctuating liquids and water needs separation. Ambar is experienced with explosion proof systems specifically designed for the Petro Chemical waste water applications.
Ports, harbours and terminals demand special consideration as the equipment requirements can vary significantly. This could range from the simple, inexpensive environmentally friendly ‘A’ Boom to OilFence, a rugged asymmetric boom. OilFence can boast in excess of 15 years of service in permanent deployment applications and due to its massive reserve buoyancy, it can support ‘fish-net’ suspended from the boom itself.
Many of the recovery systems in the nearshore and shoreline segment can be employed in ports,...
Flexible, turnkey solutions for container cleaning. Cleaning industrial containers such as canisters, vats or IBCs produce large volumes of effluent. The type of impurities in this effluent depends heavily on what has been transported in the containers. That’s why effluent treatment requires a flexible system able to cope with all conceivable contaminants. Reconditioners are increasingly using modern vacuum distillation systems to do this. They work fully automatically, guarantee a high level of process...
Reliable and effluent-free: VACUDEST in vehicle and transport cleaning. Means of transport have to be one thing above all else: Safe. That’s why the vehicles regularly undergo strict quality checks. They are thoroughly maintained, serviced and repaired, and this of course also includes careful cleaning. Effluent is produced which, due to the high degree of contamination, cannot be discharged into the public sewer system. It contains oil, grease, detergent and other impurities. This effluent is very expensive...
Mining equipment is known to commonly leak oil and fuel. And, more often than not, wash water is used to rinse such leaks. This oil/water solution is often funneled into collection pits where any oil must be separated and removed from the wastewater to ensure compliance with wastewater regulations.
In the parts washing industry, metal parts need to be thoroughly washed prior to being painted or coated to eliminate any oil that may be present on the metal and ensure the metal touts a clean surface. During the washing process, residual oil and grease is washed off the parts; however, in the process, it mixes with wash water, which is then collected in a containment area.
In the railroad industry, oil is prevalent – oil leaks and fuel spills are commonplace, oil and fuel is often washed off of locomotives during cleaning prior to maintenance, and more. To help ensure compliance with wastewater regulations and maintain environmental responsibility, railroad yards direct collected oil, fuel, wash water and rainwater to collection pits or catch basins.
In every toxic spill situations, an emergency spill response is quickly needed to prevent damages. Indeed, usually the result of an accident, a toxic spill occurs when a hazardous substance is released in an area where contamination may be harmful to the environment and the public. When an accidental spill occurs (hydrocarbons, oil or other hazardous material), it is very important for first responders to delineate a safety perimeter with adequate conditions for emergency responders to contain, quickly extract...
In petrochemical plants, process oil and oil used for equipment can leak or spill. Water is used to channel spilled oil to plant treatment systems where it then needs removed from the wastewater solution to ensure compliance with wastewater regulations.
In the military, there are various instances in which oil recovery and removal is necessary. From properly disposing of cooking oil from mess halls to effectively removing spilled or leaked oil from military airplane, ship, or tank fleets as well as other heavy equipment. As in many industries, oil from military applications is often mixed with water as a result of cleaning and washing processes.
In the tank truck wash industry, oil often mixes with wash water during the tank and truck cleaning process. The resulting oil/water mix is collected in a wastewater containment area where oil then needs to be separated and removed from the wastewater.
