Model TR-517/TR-51711/TR-51718 - Standard Skimmer
The standard skimmer is used to recover gasoline, jet fuel and most diesel fuels and is a highly versatile product designed to be used across the whole range of DGSI LNAPL recovery products.
Is used to recover gasoline, jet fuel and most diesel fuels. It combines a density float, hydrophobic element, product bypass screen, hollow guide rod and coiled hose. The center guide rod allows the skimmer to travel freely in response to the water table changes. The skimmer is designed to float with the inlet positioned at the water/ product interface, providing 24 or 36 inches of skimmer travel.
The hydrophobic element is made of a special porous plastic with a pore size that will allow only product to pass. The bypass screen on top of the hydrophobic element allows the product to enter the skimmer directly when greater than 2 inches.
- Long 900mm tracking range (smaller ranges available)
- Can be coupled to the FAP Plus and FAP Plus ZW pumps;
- Can be coupled to the POD Skimmer
- Can be coupled to the Passive Skimmer Canisters
The center guide rod allows the skimmer to travel freely in response to the water table changes. The skimmer is designed to float with the inlet positioned at the water/product interface automatically providing 90cm of skimmer travel. The density float is used to position the special hydrophobic element — the skimmer inlet — at the product water interface (see Tech Tip 3). The hydrophobic element uses a special micron pore size that is based on surface tension, allowing only product to pass. A larger pore size is available for use with higher viscosity products such as weathered diesel.
Pumping rates through the hydrophobic element will be approximately 15 l/hr.
Pumping rates through the bypass filter will be approximately 45 l/hr.
