Cleveland, Ohio, June 1, 2011 — Abanaki Corporation is pleased to offer a Light Fuel Oil Groundwater Remediation System. The system is designed to remove light hydrocarbons, such as gasoline and diesel fuel, from groundwater using existing monitoring and remediation wells. It offers a cost-effective method for removing light fuel oils from groundwater compared to traditional pump-and-treat, groundwater remediation systems.
The main component of the Light Fuel Oil Groundwater Remediation System is the unique PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer, with models that operate in 2″, 4″ or 6″ diameter monitoring wells and in depths up to 100 feet or more.
Optimum removal rates are achieved using Abanaki’s patent-pending LFO Fuzzy Belt technology, a special oil-attracting material designed to capture floating oil as the belt passes through the surface of the water.
The oil skimmer wiper blades scrape oil from the belt and discharge it into an oil concentrator, a small gravity separator that removes any trace water from the skimmed oil. The waste oil flows out of the concentrator into a transfer tank where a pump activated by float switches sends the oil to a customer-provided waste oil vessel.
Abanaki’s Light Fuel Oil Groundwater Remediation System can be configured in several ways. In addition to the standard system, explosion-proof and below-grade configurations are among available options.
