Mini Skimmer

Part Number:

Custom Order

Product Description

A small selective floating drum oil skimmer driven by a 12V motor, the Elastec Mini Skimmer is ideal for marinas, ponds, streams and small industrial tanks for recovering food processing oils, and light oils such as lube oil, hydraulic, diesel and sheens. It can be run from a low voltage power source, such as a car battery or plugged into a 110V / 220V outlet. The Mini Skimmer is very quiet and can potentially be connected to a timer or solar panel (not included). Due to its small size and light weight, this industrial oil skimmer can be deployed in tight locations such as dams, pits and tanks.

The skimmer head has two, 6 inch / 152.4 mm diameter drums connected to a 12V variable speed motor via gearbox. The High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) frame is fitted with rear and side floats, plus two, .75 inch / 19.05 mm drain ports, allowing collected oil to be drained by gravity from the skimmer. As an option, an external suction pump is available. The oil is scraped from the two rotating drums by wipers secured with stainless steel screws. If no power supply is available, simply hook up the oil skimmer to an automobile battery, and it will run for many days before needing a recharge. Where higher recovery rates are needed, we recommend our larger Elastec MiniMax drum oil skimmer which is available in pneumatic or hydraulic drive.

The skimmer frame and drums are manufactured in durable HDPE. The skimmer is delivered with a 12V regulator with battery clamps / plug and two lengths of .75 inch / 19.05 mm drain / suction hose.

Note: this skimmer is not for flammable materials or explosive atmospheres.

MiniMax

Part Number:

Custom Order

Product Description

The Elastec MiniMax is a robust and reliable drum oil skimmer designed for industrial and food oil processing applications. The standard skimmer frame is manufactured in High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), making it resistant to many chemicals found in lagoons, sumps, separators and oil pits. For food processing applications, the MiniMax can be manufactured with a stainless steel frame and drums for resistance to chemicals and high temperatures.

Waste Oil Recovery: The MiniMax oil skimmer is ideal for multiple waste oil recovery applications. The motor, gearbox and drums are capable of thousands of hours of trouble-free operations. The scrapers are self-adjusting to allow for wear. The MiniMax is supplied with either an air or hydraulic motor and a choice of oil pumps. MiniMax oil skimmers are capable of recovering both light and heavy oils with very low water content, typically around only 2 to 3%.

For acidic environments, the HDPE frame construction is recommended. The shafts and bearing are upgraded to stainless steel. In this configuration, MiniMax is widely operated in the copper mining industry recovering organic oils in acidic ponds.

Food Oil Processing: For food oil processing (palm, soybean, canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut, and sunflower) applications, the Minimax can be manufactured with a stainless steel frame and drums. The MiniMax is widely used in the palm oil industry for the recovery of waste oils. For this application, the oil must be heated to a high temperature to make it fluid. MiniMax is capable of withstanding these temperatures as well as the corrosive conditions.

TDS118

Part Number:

Custom Order

Product Description

The Elastec TDS118 floating drum oil skimmer is available in pneumatic or hydraulic motor for oil spill response or industrial use. Due to its shallow draft and light weight, the TDS118 is ideal for cleanup in creeks, rivers and lakes. It is equally at home in an industrial American Petroleum Institute (API) separator. It is capable of recovering a wide range of oils. The TDS118 has been tested at Ohmsett to substantiate its nameplate capacity and efficiency.

The TDS118 skimmer features heavy-duty high density Polyethylene drums, which are resistant to impact and abrasion. They not only serve as the rotating oleophilic element that selectively recovers the oil from water, they also provide buoyancy for the skimmer. The skimmer can draw oil in from all directions. The drum material is resistant to many chemicals found in industrial pits, sumps, separators and tanks. The self-adjusting wiper blades recover oil from the face and side of the drums as they rotate. The wipers can easily be replaced without tools.

Drive is provided for the drums by a centrally mounted gearbox (provides even weight distribution), this gearbox provides the torque necessary to turn the drums in heavy oils as well as allowing for fine control of the drum speed. The drum shafts are supported by self-aligning bearings. This is all mounted in a lightweight anodized marine grade aluminum frame, or a polyethylene HD frame- which adds further chemical and acid resistance; the open and steeply inclined pathways, the recovered oil is directed to the collection sump. The open design facilitates cleaning and removal of any debris or trash. A removable trash screen prevents larger items entering the recovered oil pump.

The TDS118 is capable of recovering both light and heavy oils with very low water content – typically around only 3%. It may be fitted with either an air or hydraulic drive motor. We offer a choice of pumps in different materials to suit the application.

The aluminum frame skimmer may be fitted with steam coils as an option to provide heat that warms the oil that’s being recovered (to aid pumping and prevent freezing) as well as melting ice surrounding the skimmer.
