The Weir Oil Skimmer is powered from the diesel-driven hydraulic Powerpack via hydraulic hoses. Weir Skimmer uses gravity to drain oil off the water surface. Typically, the top edge of the weir is positioned just below the upper surface of the slick, allowing oil to flow over the weir into a collection sump, from where it is pumped to storage. The Weir Oil Skimmer system consists of a pump + floating system + powerpack + hose reel + remote control

With self-adjustable weir, the forward motion of the skimming system provides the flow into the skimmer. Depending on the size of the weir opening, the skimmer will accept most of what it encounters, allowing it to handle highly viscous oils. Advancing Weir Oil Skimmer typically recover large volumes of water; oil/water separation should be considered to increase overall efficiency. And also weir skimmer creates a current that induces the flow of oil to the weir and this concentrating effect increases of the recovery efficiency.

All components are manufactured in marine grade aluminum, stainless steel or polypropylene. Weir skimmer can be operated in inland, coastal or open seas. Fully advanced Weir skimmer that has high recovery capacity with an excellent sea-keeping, stability, and maneuverability.

Weir Oil Skimmer system is usually all hydraulically operated, Optional diesel, gas or electric hydraulic power packs, pneumatic or electric power, and also manual or remote operation is possible. With the Continuous self-floating umbilical and thruster system, Weir Oil Skimmer get the motion capability up to 80 meters

The pump can be integrated or external for Weir Oil Skimmer and also can be removed from the skimmer and used as a tanker offloading pump.

Weir skimmer integrated with Hydraulic driven centrifugal screw pump that does not require priming, handle viscous oil, are tolerant of most types of debris and do not form oil/water emulsions.
Weir Skimmer with external pump designs for small, portable units. The skimming head is typically small and maneuverable, allowing its use in confined spaces such as among dock pilings

The skimmer handles all types of oil from light diesel fuel to heavy crude oil mixed with debris. Protection screen secures the skimmer, and also Special cutting knives are fitted in both inlet and outlet end of the pump.
