Why belt oil skimmers in Mongolia? Some of the world’s largest copper deposits are located in remote and inaccessible locations such as the Grasberg mine in Indonesia and the Oyu Tolgoi mine in Mongolia. Self-contained heavy equipment wash facilities are essential to the smooth operation of a mine. The various types of moving equipment found at a mine must be cleaned regularly to ensure peak efficiency. Removing oil from water with a belt oil skimmer is a key aspect of keeping these wash facilities and heavy equipment in working order. An industrial wastewater skimmer will remove the heaviest of the contamination allowing the wash facility to operate effectively helping the mine to be profitable.
