Cleveland, Ohio, April 21, 2011 – Abanaki Corporation is pleased to announce the addition of six new Groundwater Remediation Systems specially designed for a variety of groundwater contamination applications with specific site requirements. These Groundwater Remediation Systems are designed to handle Light Fuel, Medium Viscosity, Heavy Oil, DNAPL, Solar Powered, and Explosion Proof applications.

Unlike pump-based groundwater remediation systems, Abanaki systems use belt oil skimmers to provide a cost-effective way to remove hydrocarbons from groundwater. These oil skimmer Groundwater Remediation Systems include a PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer and an oil transfer package. The key components of the PetroXtractor oil skimmer are an oleophilic belt, motor, belt wipers and discharge trough. The oil transfer package includes a pump, electric controls, and oil-collection/transfer tank.

Each Groundwater Remediation System oil skimmer uses an endless belt in 1″, 2″, or 4″ widths that will fit in 2″, 4″, and 6″ or larger diameter well casings. These systems can also be adapted using other skimmers in Abanaki’s range for applications in ponds, trenches, and wastewater pits. Abanaki oil skimmers and systems require very little maintenance, are easy to install, and have low energy costs.
