OIL SKIMMERS

MIGHTY MINI

MIGHTY MINI TECHNICAL DATA

Oil Skimming - Mighty MiniThe ideal solution to unwanted oil in coolants and parts washers therefore extending the life of coolant and wash water! The Mighty Mini SST Oil Skimmer can remove 1 to 2 gallons of medium weight oil per hour (depending on belt selection ). Its stainless steel construction enables it to operate in harsh chemicals and heat while its integrated timer lets it run only when needed. The Mighty Mini SST Oil Skimmer is designed to minimise water content in the disposed oil; however the optional Oil Concentrator® will further reduce the water content in the oil to less than 2%. This provides tremendous cost saving if the oil is to be recycled or disposed.

It is compact making efficient use of available space… it fits underneath most CNC machines as well as inside parts washers. The small footprint even allows the Mighty Mini SST Oil Skimmer to fit through the bung hole of a 55 gallon drum! With belts specifically selected for your application available in lengths of 6, 12, 18 and 24″. This Oil Skimmer has endless application possibilities.

The Mighty Mini SST Oil Skimmer weighs only 8 pounds and the ease of installation make this skimmer the most versatile of our line. Use it here today and there tomorrow as it installs in just seconds.

TOTE-IT

Oil Skimmer - Tote ITWith it’s patented design, the Tote-It oil skimmer is a dependable and effective means of removing oil from water. The single assembly unit can be used in any application where 115 VAC, 60 Hz power is available.

The Tote-It belt oil skimmer utilises a continuous belt and wiper to remove up to 12 gallons of oil per hour from the fluid surface. The belt operates on a motor and pulley system attached to a stabiliser bar that is immersed in the contaminated liquid. After traveling over the head pulley, the belt passes through tandem wiper blades where oil is scraped off both sides of the belt, and discharged through a 1-1/4 in. ID hose. The tail pulley has flanges which allow it to roll freely on the inside of the belt without becoming dislodged. It does not need to be fastened to the tank.

Oil skimming makes use of the differences in specific gravity and surface tension between oil and water. These physical characteristics allow the belt to attract oil and other hydrocarbon liquids from the surface of the fluid.

The Tote-It belt oil skimmer is especially well suited for parts washing and machining centre applications. By removing surface oil from a wash tank, the parts will not be recontaminated as they are withdrawn. Removing tramp oil from a coolant tank prevents excessive smoke and fumes due to oil burning during cutting operations. It also reduces bacteria growth in the tank, along with the resulting odour.

Model 4

Oil Grabber - Model 4The Model 4 Oil Grabber is a dependable and effective means of removing oil from water and water-base solutions. Often, oil skimming by itself will reduce oil to an acceptable level of water purity. Depending on the characteristics of the liquid, it is possible for the Model 4 alone to reduce oil content to less than five parts per million in water. The unit can be used as a pretreatment before filtration, and in conjunction with coalescing systems as part of an industrial wastewater treatment plan.

Model 4 belt oil skimmer utilises a continuous belt and wiper to remove up to 20 gallons of oil per hour from the fluid surface. The belt, operating on a motor and pulley system, runs through contaminated liquid to pick up oil from the surface. After traveling over the head pulley, the belt passes through tandem wiper blades where oil is scraped off both sides of the belt and discharged. The tail pulley has flanges which allow it to roll freely on the inside of the belt without becoming dislodged. It requires no bearings and does not need to be fastened to the tank. If turbulent conditions exist, an optional tether and cage assembly prevents the tail pulley from being dislodged.

Oil skimming makes use of the differences in specific gravity and surface tension between oil and water. These physical characteristics allow the belt to attract oil and other hydrocarbon liquids from the surface of the fluid. The Model 4 can be used in tanks with depths as shallow as one foot, or as deep as 100 feet.

Model 8

Oil Grabber - Model 8The Model 8 Oil Grabber is a dependable and effective means of removing oil from water and water-base solutions. Often, belt oil skimmers alone will reduce oil to an acceptable level of water purity. Depending on the characteristics of the liquid, it is possible for the Model 8 alone to reduce oil content to less than five parts per million in water. The unit can be used as a pretreatment before filtration, and in conjunction with coalescing systems.

The Model 8 belt oil skimmer utilises a continuous belt and wiper to remove up to 40 gallons of oil per hour from the fluid surface. The belt, operating on a motor and pulley system, runs through contaminated liquid to pick up oil from the surface. After traveling over the head pulley, the belt passes through tandem wiper blades where oil is scraped off both sides of the belt and discharged. The tail pulley has flanges which allow it to roll freely on the inside of the belt without becoming dislodged. It requires no bearings and does not need to be fastened to the tank.

SKIMMER BELTS

Standard Poly Oil Skimmer Belt
Standard Poly Belts
Reinforced to resist stretching, able to withstand reasonably high temperatures (up to 170°F), and textured to retain a small amount of oil, thus drawing more oil to itself on subsequent passes. Used where rust inhibitors and temperature are a component of the wash water or where UV sensitivity is an issue. Picks up some emulsified oils.
Used On: All belt skimmers
