Time for a Fall Check-Up!

Although an oil skimmer needs little maintenance, basic care will maintain its ability to remove oil efficiently. The following maintenance inspections should be performed regularly:

  • Are the wipers contacting the belt smoothly?
  • Is the belt riding in the center of the head pulley?
  • Are the troughs and wipers clear of debris?
  • Does the gear reducer oil on your Oil Grabber® need to be changed?

Does Abanaki manufacture a skimmer that can remove floating grease from a steel mill scale pit?

Skimmerman answers:

Yes we do. The Grease Grabber® is designed specifically to remove heavy grease. It has a dual drive roller design that pulls the belt through the wiper blades. It also has an oversized heated trough to collect and thin down the grease so it can be gravity discharged to a holding container.

From Ian:

I have an application that has a thick coal tar-like substance in a monitoring well. Do you have anything that can help?

Skimmerman answers:

The PetroXtractor® belt oil skimmer would be a great fit for this application. This skimmer is specifically designed for monitoring well applications. When the skimmer is outfitted with our standard polymer belt, the skimmer will efficiently pick up this viscous product. Accessories and options can also help with this type of an application. Stabilizer bars can ensure proper tension on the belt and heat can aid in the discharge of the product. Other options are available that can be of benefit in this application.
