Tube oil skimmers are great for some specific applications where oil needs to be removed from water or coolant. The basic principal is that the tube will reach into the water and break the oil’s surface tension. This is the same way that the belt skimmers work. Many people prefer the belt skimmers when there is direct access overhead, but this is often not the case. Some applications will not have vertical access to the liquid. Tube oil skimmers allow the unit to reach in a side access point and go down to the surface. The tube oil skimmer can be an easy solution to a troubling problem.
