Belt vs Tube

Posted by Tom Hobson on Sep 13, 2012 4:47:15 AM


Customers often wonder when to use a belt skimmer and when to use a tube skimmer.The different styles are actually useful for many of the same jobs.The two options work in the same way.Both belt skimmers and tube skimmers collect oil at the point the belt/tube is touching the liquid.In applications where there is limited access from directly overhead, a tube skimmer would be the more ideal option.On the other hand, there are some applications that will show better pickup rates from utilizing belt skimmers.If you are unsure as to which material would best suit your particular application, contact an Abanaki sales rep today for assistance!
