Oil Skimmers

Oil Grabber® Multi-Belt Oil Skimmer

The Abanaki® Oil Grabber® Multi-Belt is a dependable and effective means of removing oil from water and water-base solutions. Often, skimming by itself will reduce oil to an acceptable level of water purity. Depending on the characteristics of the liquid, it is possible for the Oil Grabber® Multi-Belt alone to reduce oil content to less than five parts per million in water. The unit can be used as a pretreatment before filtration, and in conjunction with a coalescing system.

Typical Applications

The Model MB is designed for applications with enormous surface areas and/or high-volume removal capacity is required. Multiples of two, three, or five belts are available and are capable or removing floating liquid contaminants ranging from a mere sheen on top of water to a heavy oil slick, efficiently, removing up to 200 gallons (750 litres) of oil per hour. Abanaki Multi-Belt Oil Skimmers can be used in tanks with depths as shallow as one foot, or where the distance from the mounting platform to the water surface is as deep as 100 feet (30 metres) or more. Available options include: built-in programmable 24/hr timer, on/off float switch, oil concentrator and many more.
