When groundwater becomes contaminated it can cause all sorts of problems. It is important to remove the contaminated water as soon as possible to keep from spreading and to get the contaminants contained. Recently, a UK beverage facility had a diesel spill at part of its outdoor facility. The company had two issues to tackle with the diesel clean up. First they needed something that would not take up too much space but would still efficiently remove the oil and second, they were limited on power supplies to run the equipment. The company turned to Abanaki for a solution.
An Abanaki salesperson visited the site to better access what the company's needs were. Once there it was clear that a Solar Powered PetroXtractor could complete the task with ease. It would tackle both of the customer's issues; it would remove the spilled diesel and clean up the contaminated area and the solar option would also solve the limited power supply at the site.
The Abanaki PetroXtractor is a dependable and cost effective means of removing oil, fuel, and other floating hydrocarbons from water where access to the fluid surface is limited. It is part of an efficient groundwater remediation system for groundwater contaminated by oil, using existing recovery and monitoring wells. Often, the PetroXtractor Well Oil Skimmer working alone will reduce oil or fuel content to an acceptable E.P.A. level. Models are available for two inch, four inch, and six inch or larger ID well casings, with removal rates up to 12 gph (based on SEA 30 motor oil). Depths of 100 feet or more can be accommodated without the use of pumps.
Abanaki solar options are perfect for applications where power sources are limited or nonexistent. Abanaki also offers secured enclosures that are used in situations where there is a need to keep the oil skimmer from being tampered with or in situations where the operation of oil removal equipment may be deemed unsightly. These lockable poly shelters are available in two sizes to accommodate various oil skimmer sizes and option configurations.
