Abanaki has just released an animated demo for a product from the groundwater remediation equipment line. The video demonstrates the PetroXtractor Active Membrane Skimmer, which is a pneumatic active skimmer pump that is entirely automatic and is designed to recover light non aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL) from underground water at depths of up to 130 feet.
Did you know that about 40% of the US population uses groundwater as drinking water? Unfortunately, there are still roughly 126,200 sites in the US that contain contaminated groundwater and require remediation. Groundwater remediation is the process of removing pollution from our water supplies and fresh drinking water sources. This process can be costly and range from $110-127 billion. However, with the use of Abanaki’s PetroXtractor oil skimmers and leachate pumps, that cost can drop drastically. Our products are designed to work in rugged and harsh environments. Additionally, they require little power or energy to operate, helping to reduce energy costs of the end user. Learn more about the facts of contaminated groundwater sites in the US and how Abanaki PetroXtractor belt oil skimmers and pumps can easily and efficiently remediate your contaminated ground water.

Have you heard about Abanaki's newest product the PetroXtractor Active Membrane Skimmer? This pneumatic active skimmer pump is entirely automatic and is designed to recover light non aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL) from underground water at depths of up to 130 feet. The PetroXtractor Active Membrane Skimmer is a combination of a pump and skimmer that fits inside a monitoring well, the only solution on the market to use a combination pump and skimmer technology. The unit features an advanced patented membrane that skims the light hydrocarbons and keeps water out of the recovered liquid, which lowers disposal costs. This selective membrane is designed to recover free floating hydrocarbons such as gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation fuel, and kerosene as well as other LNAPL from groundwater. Unlike other groundwater remediation products, the unit is capable of far lower operation and maintenance costs. Equipped with a start/stop design, the pumps will automatically shut off when there is no recovered liquid present. The automatic shutoff feature eliminates the need for continuous air supply, which helps to preserve the life of the pump and lowers energy costs. This skimmer will lower energy costs, lower hydrocarbon disposal costs, effectively remove free floating hydrocarbons from groundwater, and maintain a long service life with little maintenance required.
