SKIMMERS


Liquatex have a range of skimmers to suit different situations.  Drum skimmers, belt skimmers, weir skimmers and disc skimmers are to name a few.

Disc Skimmers

For recovering oil from contained areas. Liquatex disc skimmers are manufactured form marine grade aluminium, and the oil collecting discs from either polypropylene or aluminium.  Oil adheres to the rotating discs as they pass through the spill.  Oil is removed from the discs using Teflon scrapers.  The oil runs down oil trays onto the apron and into a collection sump,…

Weir Skimmers

Self adjusting weir skimmers. These skimmers are extremely easy to operate due to the self adjusting weir.  Simply place the skimmer in the water, connect the hose to the suction pump and turn on the pump.  The weir ring has a fast wave response, reducing water intake.  Floats are normally made from moulded polypropylene and the frames are manufactured from stainless steel.  Available…

Ideal for shallow water. Due to its shallow draft, and lightweight construction, these drum skimmers are ideal for cleaning up shallow creeks, rivers and lakes (operates in 75mm of water).  These are available in either hydraulic or pneumatic drive, for oil spill response or industrial use.  There is no buoyancy adjustments required - simple operation.  The grooved drum allows for enhanced…
