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.
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.
