Oil Skimmers

When liquid products are stored, contamination can often sit on the surface, be that oil, water, scum or slime. An Oil Skimmer is used to drain this unwanted surface layer from a product and comprises an inlet which is suspended from floating pontoons so it sits marginally below the product surface.

Oil Skimmers can be installed in horizontal or vertical, above or below ground storage tanks, separators and silos. The inlet is connected to a tank outlet using a combination of pipes and swivels.

We are UK distributors for ERGIL who manufacture single and double joint Oil Skimmers which can be fitted in conventional fixed roof storage tanks, external floating roof tanks and internal floating roof tanks.
