CLEVELAND, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 10/11/11 -- Abanaki Corporation has added a Solar Powered Groundwater Remediation System to their broad line of oil skimming solutions. This system is typically used in monitoring wells located in remote areas where standard power is unavailable. An added benefit is that solar power is a renewable energy source which is environmentally-friendly and readily available.
The solar power oil skimming system consists of Abanaki's unique PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer equipped with a 12-volt DC motor, solar panel, timer, battery, battery box, and control components. Belt types used on this system will depend upon the viscosity of oil being collected. The PetroXtractor removes up to 12 gph of oil from water and can be installed in well casings with as small as a 2 inch inside diameter.
The oil skimmer elevates skimmed oil 100 feet or more where the wiper blades scrape oil from the belt and discharge it into an Oil Concentrator, a small gravity separator that removes any trace water from the skimmed oil. The waste oil flows out of the Concentrator into a user-provided collection container outfitted with a float switch. The float switch will automatically turn off the oil skimmer when the container is full. This cost-effective Solar Powered Groundwater Remediation System can be configured with the basics all the way to vapor-tight units.
