DESMI - Model MINI-MAX - Self-Adjusting Weir Skimmer
From Oil Spill Response
The unique DESMI MINI-MAX is a self-adjusting weir skimmer that is capable of recovering a wide range of oils and products floating on the water surface. It is ideal for small industrial separators, tanks and waters. This skimmer can be coupled directly to a vacuum truck or other suction pumps such as diaphragm pumps. The DESMI MINI-MAX is ideal for skimming a wide range of products – as long as it floats and flows the DESMI MINI-MAX will be able to recover it!
The MINI-MAX skimmer head may be connected to any self-priming suction pump - preferably with a variable speed and a two or three inch suction connection. DESMI is able to provide a variety of pumps to suit many applications.
Capacity and viscosity handling of the skimmer head is determined by the suction pump or vacuum system attached to the skimmer. Vacuum systems are ideal as they can pull a deep suction.
360 degree oil access - oil has uninterrupted flow into the central hopper, buoyancy is provided by the central float.
Reliability - as the MINI-MAX has no mechanical components and is constructed from robust materials, it is ideal for installation in oil pits, API separators and other process lagoons where long term unattended operation is required.
We typically package the MINI-MAX with a diesel driven 3 inch diaphragm pump in a convenient aluminium storage and shipping box. We can also provide electric, pneumatic and hydraulic driven diaphragm, peristaltic and centrifugal pumps.
