Abanaki Corporation offers a cost-effective way to remove hydrocarbon contamination from groundwater without pumps. Engineers in industrial settings have, for many years, valued oil skimmers as the lowest cost way to remove hydrocarbons from wastewater. Food processing plants, the metals industry, machining firms, and utilities have all used oil skimmers with great success for wastewater treatment. Recently, Abanaki has modified its products for remediation of groundwater. The oil skimmer’s ability to get into tight spaces and remove relatively large amounts of oils and other hydrocarbons lends itself perfectly to groundwater remediation.

I am designing a car wash bay for a service station. The run-off from its operation will flow to an in-ground holding pit before being released to the city sewer system. The pit will be 12 x 20 x 6 dimensionally. I would like to specify an oil skimmer to remove the oils and greases. What model do you recommend?
An Oil Grabber Model 8 or Model 4 oil skimmer would be my recommendation depending on how much oil you will need to remove. The oil skimmer can be placed on the edge of the pit and the oil can be discharged into a 55 gallon drum or storage tote. The oil skimmers are able to remove 32 gph or 16 gph depending on the model you choose and are available in any voltage you may require.
I am in need of an oil skimmer for an application I have. With so many choices out there, how do I determine which is the best oil skimmer for my particular application?
There are a few things to consider when choosing an oil skimmer for any application. The most important thing is to pick an oil skimmer that is suited for the size of the application and the correct belt type. The questions below will help narrow it down:
What is the size of the tank or sump you wish to skim from?
What is the type of oil you are looking to remove?
What amount of oil do you need to remove?
What is the point of access on the tank or sump?
