Weir Skimmer 5000 L/hr


Application: Global Weir Skimmers are a floating, suction type skimmer for removing oils and fuels from the water surface. Designed to be used in ponds, lakes, dams, rivers, harbours and marinas.

  • These tough skimmers use a self-adjusting weir that floats and finds the oil/water interface and permits the surface layer (oil) to be drawn over the weir and into the bowl.
  • Ideal for use with self-priming, ‘suction’ type pumps in all types of spill recovery and other environmental and industrial applications.
  • Specially designed concertina and floating ring automatically re-adjusts the skimming depth 10mm to 20mm in ‘choppy’ waters, minimising the amount of water skimmed.
  • Can operate in very shallow water.
  • Supplied with 5m of reinforced suction hose and camlock adaptor.
  • Use optional trash screen to prevent debris from entering the weir.
  • Compact, lightweight and easily deployed and operated by one person.
  • Recovers up to 5000 litres/hour of oil.
  • For oil spill recovery, the spill should be contained and ‘thickened’ with the use of a boom. The skimmer can then be placed where the oil is thickest.
