Interchangeable Element Skimmer


Application: Global Interchangeable Element Skimmers are a floating oil skimmer for removing oils and fuels from the water surface. Designed to be used in ponds, lakes, dams, rivers, harbours ports and marinas for high volume oil recovery.

  • Choice of either Brush element for high viscosity oils or Drum element for light viscosity oils.
  • Oil adheres to the chosen element as it rotates through the water/oil
    interface. The oil is continuously scraped off the element and collected in the sump, from where it is pumped to suitable storage via an integral on-board pump or shore based pump.
  • Four x 300mm diameter hard bristle, polypropylene brushes for high viscosity oil recover up to 50m³/h.
  • Four x 300mm diameter polyethylene drums for light viscosity oil recover up to 24m³/h.
  • Rotational speed is adjustable from 0 to 100 RPM (at power pack).
  • Use self-priming, ‘suction’ type pumps to transfer the skimmed oil to shore or optional on board oil transfer pump (pictured).
  • A hydraulic power pack (refer to section on Power Packs) provides the power for the skimmer or oil pump.
  • Manufactured in marine grade aluminium.
  • Can be used when operating in water with a current.
