Tube skimmers remove floating surface oils in industrial or food processing tanks
The Abanaki Oil Viper tube skimmer is a surface oil skimmer that effectively removes floating
surface oils by means of an oleophilic (oil attracting) 3/4 inch diameter
continuous looped tube. The tube extends out over the surface of the tank or pit
and collects the free floating oils.
The Oil Viper has a specially designed method for removing the oil from the
tube. It has a unique wiper combination attached to the tube itself in addition
to the ceramic wiper on the skimmer. The result is a virtually oil free tube as
it leaves the surface oil skimmer for quicker oil removal. Removal rates can be as high as
one hundred gallons per hour.
