Abanaki Adds New Line of Remediation Skimmers and Leachate Pumps

CLEVELAND, Ohio, January 14, 2013 — Abanaki Corporation (, the world leader in oil skimming solutions, announces a new technology added to its groundwater remediation systems line. This new product line will include the PetroXtractor Active Membrane Skimmer, PetroXtractor Passive Membrane Skimmer, and Leach-Aid Landfill Pump, intended for use in remediation and leachate (landfill) applications.

Currently, the groundwater remediation systems line features the PetroXtractor®, a belt oil skimmer that is suitable for handling heavy oils. The new PetroXtractor Active Membrane Skimmer will extend the product line to be suitable to handle light oil applications. The Leach-Aid Landfill Pumps are constructed and designed to operate in the harsh conditions present in sites such as landfills.

The air powered active skimmers are completely automatic and designed to recover free floating hydrocarbons from groundwater. Unlike other pump skimmers, the PetroXtractor active skimmer has an Oleophilic membrane that keeps the water out. Also available is a Passive Membrane Skimmer that requires no air power to operate and is ideal for monitoring or initial testing for contamination in applications.

There are a multitude of advantages to this line that sets it apart from other skimmers and pumps on the market. These products require less air consumption than the leading competitor’s. Additionally, this line is designed to automatically shut off when liquid no longer passes through it and turns back on once full again. With less air consumption needed and less air being wasted with the automatic start/stop design, Abanaki’s new remediation line saves the operator a great deal on energy costs. These pumps are made of durable stainless steel and are available in various sizes that can alternate from top loading, bottom loading, or both to better suit the application. Additionally, the oleophilic membrane utilized in this line lasts significantly longer than other skimmers.
