The Oil Skimmers Model 6V waste oil recovery system removes animal, vegetable and petroleum-based oils, fats, greases, and oily wastes that float on the surface of water or other liquids. The unit removes as much as 100 gallons of waste oil per hour and discharges it into a drum so efficiently that the recovered waste oil is virtually water-free.
At its simplest, the Oil Skimmers Model 6V Brill™ waste oil recovery system separates oil and water using a specially formulated collector tube:
•Oil adheres to the outside of the floating closed-loop tube as it is slowly drawn across the surface of the water and into the oil skimmer.
•Unlike other skimmers, which can get clogged by floating debris, the tube skimmer snakes over and around floating debris, adjusting automatically to changing water levels.
•The tube is then drawn up into the oil skimmer and through scrapers that remove the oil.
•The tube then returns to the water surface to collect more oil.
•The recovered oil flows into a collection container.
