A new model from Oil Skimmers in the US promises to make effective work of removing residues that float on the surface of water.
The Model 6V oil recovery system removes animal, vegetable and petroleum-based oils using a specially formulated collector tube. The oil adheres to the outside of the closed-loop tube which is drawn through scrapers into the machine, and then returns to the water to continue skimming.
Up to 100 gallons can be skimmed every hour, said the company, while the tube automatically adjusts to varying water levels and can wind over and around floating debris. For cold weather operations the model can be fitted with insulation and heating packages.
