Rope-Mop Oil Skimmer is oleophilic, hydrophobic, and fibrillated polypropylene yarn. Rope-Mop Oil Skimmer rejects the absorption of water, and it attracts all oils and floating chemicals.

Rope Mop Oil Skimmer’s fabric creates e a maximum surface area, making a massive recovery capability through adsorption and retention of oil and floating chemicals.

The E-Series Rope Mop Oil Skimmer is ideal for recovering light, medium, and emulsified oils in rivers, swamps, and other inland waters.

Long Rope Mop Oil Skimmer lengths can be used, enabling oil some distance from the wringer unit to be collected. As the mop system is an oleophilic (oil-attracting) system, only a tiny percentage of water is picked up with the oil.


Mop Skimmer can attract all oils and floating chemicals. Rejects water is not affected by floating debris on the water surface. The mop oil skimmer can be made to any length required. The rope mop skimmer can be made ready-looped or open-ended. It is available in 4″, 6″ 9″ Widths, or a full version is made to produce the mop net. Rope Mop Oil Skimmer has two types: black mop for heavy oils, white mop for light oils, and medium viscosity oils. It is hugely diverse in its use.
