Daniel Cross asked:
Oil and grease tends to become solid in the surface of separation tanks in food industry. How do the skimmer works in this situation?. Are they provided with a heater?. Thanks for your answer.
An oil skimmer can be used effectively in this application by utilizing a Mat Buster to break up the solids. As the skimmer picks up the oil and grease it is discharged into a heated trough or hopper (depending on the model selected), liquefied and discharged to a tramp oil container. As happens so often here at Abanaki, the Mat Buster grew out of the needs of our clients—such as you!
Karen Sohlberg Asked:
My oil skimmer isn’t picking up oil from my coolant sump like it did a few days ago. What is going on?
Your coolant may contain rust inhibitors that are coating the metal belt causing a barrier between the the belt and the oil. Try changing to a synthetic belt material such as Elastomer or Polymer. Rust inhibitors do not affect them.
