|Video: New Tube Skimmer Skims Oil Faster, Cleaner|
Oil Viper, the Natural Enemy of Surface Oil If you already like the efficiency and dependability of the Model 8 Oil Grabber, you’ll like Abanaki’s invitation to “run with the sun.” The Model 8 Oil Grabber with Solar Option makes is ideal for remediation at remote locations, including large mills and trenches far from stationary power sources.This solar oil skimmer gives you a continuous belt and wiper to remove up to 40 gallons of oil per hour from the fluid surface— but it makes that power portable. A 12-V motor runs the compact, self-contained unit. That motor runs off a deep-cycle battery, which in turn is recharged by a solar panel. It takes only a couple of hours to recharge the battery. Of course, the solar panel is adjustable to literally follow the sun.
Like the other Model 8 Oil Grabbers, the belt runs through contaminated liquid to pick up oil from the surface. After traveling over the head pulley, the belt passes through tandem wiper blades where oil is scraped off both sides of the belt and discharged. The tail pulley has flanges, which allow it to roll freely on the inside of the belt without becoming dislodged. It requires no bearings and does not need to be fastened to the tank. If turbulent conditions exist, an optional tether and cage assembly prevents the tail pulley from being dislodged.
The shipping time for this unit with option is 4 to 6 weeks.
