What is an oil-skimmer?
An oil skimmer is a tool used to clean up oil spills by collecting oil that is slick on a liquid surface. The roughness of the water that a skimmer is working on has a significant impact on how well it performs; the more choppy the wake and water, the more water the oil skimmer will absorb rather than just oil.
Utilizing a Netsol Oil Skimmer to recover oily waste can help a variety of industries reduce water pollution. The floating oil will be constantly recovered in a state that enables disposal or reclamation, for other industrial uses. It is simple to remove even the lightest oils used in processing.
Applications of oil-skimmers
Depending on their exact designs, they are employed for a variety of purposes besides cleaning up oil spills, including collecting fats, oils, and greases in wastewater treatment, removing oil from machine tool coolant, and washing watery parts.Refineries, petrochemical factories, and other large industrial facilities that remove free oils and particulates, from wastewater use oil skimmers.
Other application for Oil Skimmer includes:
· Hydrocarbon oils
· Lubricant liquids
· Oil for machines
· Mineral lubricants
· Synthetic and natural fluids
Belt-Type Oil Skimmer
· Tramp oil is eliminated from process fluid
· Prevents pollution from oil
· Recuperates priceless oil products
· Low upkeep
Components of oil skimmers
Oil Skimmers have a complete enclosure, an endless belt, an electric motor and driving unit, and is robustly built for industrial purposes. The lowest part of the belt is submerged in an oil-supporting liquid, and it is suspended from a pulley. The floating oil sticks to both sides of the belt, when it is lowered into the liquid.
Oil from the belt is removed by self-adjusting wipers positioned in a staggered configuration. In order to be deposited into a storage tank or containers, the recovered oil drains down a trough.
Totally Enclosed Drive Unit Oil Skimmer
The drive unit for the Oil Skimmer is completely enclosed and positioned inside the casing. Maximum crew safety, simple drive access, and superior drive protection are all provided by the compact design. The entire drive unit is shielded from the elements, pollutants, and dirt.
It is simple to maintain
A full-width hinge door is included with the Oil Skimmer to provide for simple access to all functional parts. Maintenance can be kept to a minimum by simply removing the endless belt for repair or replacement. To account for wear, the wiper assembly is self-adjusting. Alignment with the belt and consistent pressure are guaranteed.
Belt Tracking is Automatic
Belt tracking issues are resolved by a specifically constructed driving pulley used in the Oil Skimmer. Complex adjustable bearing assemblies, and the accompanying maintenance processes, are removed by this distinctive feature.
