Oil Skimmers

Tote-It® Portable Oil Skimmer

Overview

The Tote-It®'s patented design is a dependable and effective means of removing oil from water. The single assembly unit can be used in any application where 115 VAC, 60 Hz power is available.

The Tote-It® is especially well suited for parts washing, machining center and central coolant processing applications. As the name implies, this model is portable and ideal for intermittent deployment or temporary use. However, it is also durable and due to the design of the stabilizer bar and tail pulley system, turbulent situations are not a problem. Which makes it the ideal solution for marine vessel bilge water applications. To provide even greater efficiency and allow an adequate settling period for oil to break free from the liquid and float to the surface the Abanaki Tote-It Oil Skimmer can also be customized to include an integrated programmable 24/hr timer and automatic on/off float switch to prevent spills from collection drum overflow. Available belt lengths can range from 18" (45cm) to 10 feet (3m).

Typical Applications

The Tote-It® is designed for those applications where multiple tanks can take advantage of a single portable unit. It can also be used in permanent installations with limited access areas, such as machining center coolant tanks and parts washers. By removing surface oil from a wash tank, the parts will not be re-contaminated as they are withdrawn. Removing tramp oil from a coolant tank increases coolant lifespan, reduces disposal costs, and prevents excessive smoke and fumes due to oil burning during cutting operations. It also reduces bacteria growth in the tank, along with the resulting odor.
