9 Typical Applications For Industrial Oil Skimmers: What Is The Best Solution Of These Applications?

Posted by Tom Hobson on May 25, 2017 2:35:56 PM

The relationship between oil and water in a mixture is well-known and governed by two physical properties:

  • Specific Gravity: Most hydrocarbons have a lower specific gravity than water. Without agitation, oil separates from the water and floats to the surface. These oils are known as LNAPL’s, Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid. Oils (and other components) that sink in water have a higher specific gravity and are known as DNAPL’s, Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid.
  • Surface Tension and Affinity: Normally, oil bonds more tightly to itself and other materials than to water. This affinity, and differences in surface tension between oil and water, cause oils to adhere to a skimming medium.

Although designs vary, all oil skimmers rely on specific gravity, surface tension and a moving medium to remove floating oil from a fluid’s surface.

Waste Oil Recovery Basics: The 7 Benefits, 4 No-Nos, 3 TLCs, and 1 Solution

Posted by Tom Hobson on Mar 22, 2017 8:30:00 AM

Waste oil recovery is critical to any application for a multitude of reasons. Many companies try, or should be trying to recover their used oil in order to stay in compliance with government standards and regulations. No one wants to pay a massive fine or even worse, donning the orange jump suit with silver bracelets, when complying with the law and keeping our environment clean is a simple enough task.

Additionally, recovering used oil has its monetary perks. Reclaimed hydrocarbons can be sold for profit and removing it properly can help extend the life of equipment, waste water, or coolant. All while Mother Earth smiles and the people rejoice. Everybody wins.
