How Does Our Tube-Type Oil Skimmer Work? Video

Oil Skimmers, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of fully automatic tube-type oil skimmers and skimming systems.

Here's how it works:

Oil adheres to the outside of a floating, closed-loop tube as it is slowly drawn across the surface of the water, adjusting automatically to changing water levels. The movement of the tube across the surface actually creates a current that draws in the oil.

The oil-covered tube passes through ceramic scrapers that remove the oil and the clean tube then returns to the surface to collect more. The recovered oil flows into a collection container and is virtually water-free. Custom mounts can be designed to meet each customer's unique specifications.

Tube-type skimmers can efficiently remove all petroleum-based oil, fats, grease and oily wastes as well as animal and vegetable oils that float on the surface of the water. And unlike other skimmers, which can be obstructed by floating debris, tube-type skimmers have the ability to snake over, under, and through debris to constantly pick up oil.
