Drum Skimmers

​Drum Skimmers are an Oil Skimmer type used to skim oil off the surface of the water by featuring rotating drums that are made of synthetic material (HDPE) or metal and to which oil adheres.

​The oil is scraped off the suface of the drums by scrapers and, passing through the frame structure, is conveyed into the integrated recovery tank. From the integrated recovery tank the substances are then sucked in by a pump and sent to external storage tanks. This type of Oil Skimmers is suitable for use in mid-sized and large tanks as well as for offshore operations. Depending on the model, the devices can have an oil recovery rate from 1 m³ to 180 m³ per hour. The amount of entrained water is approx. 2%, thus making the use of additional oil water separators unnecessary.
