Under most operating conditions, Abanaki’s TubeTastic! picks up oil with only small traces of water or coolant. However, as surface oil is reduced to a thin layer (1/16 inch thick or less), more water (or coolant) may be picked up along with the oil. When used in tandem with the TubeTastic, the Oil Concentrator solves this problem by providing final phase separation. The result is water (or coolant) available for recycling, and virtually water-free oil for disposal.
Recently John, an Abanaki sales rep, visited a customer that was in need of replacing some old components in its skimming operation. The facility uses the Model 8 oil skimmers on tanks that are 20 ft off of the ground. The skimmed hydrocarbons are drained in to an oil concentrator below. The oil concentrators at the facility are very old and don't preform like they have in previous years. John suggested the company replace the older oil concentrators with Abanaki's OC200.
A company that handles the transferring of petroleum and alternative fuels recently had a leak in one of its reservoir tanks. The company purchased a 4 inch Tote-It with a Fuzzy betl and Oil Concentrator to clean up the mess.
The wastewater pits in Steel Mills are a particularly harsh place for oil skimmers to operate. The heavy oils and greases that are typically found in the scale-pits can wear out an oil skimmer if the right skimmer and belt material is not being used.
One of the many advatanges of Abanaki oil skimmers is that they are built to operate in numerous applications. This advantage comes in handy with some of our customers that own and operate several different industrial operations. Abanaki has had a customer in India for over 10 years. This customer has businesses in paint, lubricant, and some chemical production, as well as real-estate and engineering services. Over the past 10 years this company has utilized and purchased more than 125 Mighty Disk Skimmers!
Oil skimming is a dirty job. However, it is an important part of numerous industries. Some industries utilize oil skimmers to help stay in compliance with EPA regulations and to keep hydrocarbons out of the environment. Other industries need oil skimmers to help prolong tool life or keep the work place a healthy place for the plant operators. Regardless of the reason, oil skimmers offer a simple, cost-effective, and environmentally sound solution to removing hydrocarbons from any application.
