​The oil recovery is basically limited only by the pump rating. The Suction Skimmer is also ideal when really large amounts of oil must be recovered. When they are deployed, Suction Skimmers collect a higher amount of residual water than other oil skimmer systems and therefore it is appropriate to use additional oil water separators afterwards.

The intake tract of the Oil Skimmer may be blocked by solids; thus, depending on the degree of soiling, it is useful to equip the Suction Skimmer with a net.
