infographic of key features on a skimmer

The Ultraspin oil skimmer has:

  • A floating weir that automatically adjusts to changing water flow rates
  • This weir automatically rebalances if the skimmer tilts
  • No moving parts meaning with little to no maintenance
  • Skims in all directions for complete oil removal
  • Independent operation, no operator input required

We do custom orders!

Sometimes our customers need their oil skimmers to meet specific requirements to suit their oily water application. Because of the different industries our Oil Skimmers are used in, two things that often come up are material compatibility and hose length.

Recently one of our customers requested two high flow oil skimmers made to meet material specifications used in the Petroleum Industry. Working together with the customer, we were able to provide two high flow SS316 Ultraspin Oil Skimmers and two 35m oily water rated suction hoses – the longest we’ve ever done!

Do you have an oily water problem that needs to meet specific industry requirements? No problem!
