Like other oil skimmers in Oil Skimmers, Inc.’s (Cleveland, OH) lineup, the Model 7V features a free floating, closed-loop tube that skims the surface of wastewater. Oil adheres to the outside of the tube and is drawn into the oil skimmer and through ceramic scrapers that remove the oil. The free floating collector tube then returns to the water’s surface to collect more oil, while the recovered oil flows to a collection container. Other features include:
- A variable speed controller, which makes it easy to increase speed of the oil removal process, or dial it down as requirements change. Variable speed control is ideal for accommodating different quantities, viscosities (fast for thin, slower for thick) and sudden increases in oil volume, such as spills.
- A heavy duty exterior coating that delivers resistance to corrosion and chemicals, and performs well even in harsh weather conditions and extreme temperatures.
- A number of options including heat and insulation and is available with the full range of mounts and attachment options to facilitate easy installation across the spectrum of industrial applications.
