Weir Oil Skimmer

The weir skimmer designed to recover oil spill, oil, and oil emulsions with medium to high viscosity with a range of 70 – 350 m3/h from a floating oil on the water under calm to rough weather conditions. The weir skimmer selectively recovers oil over the top of the central weir sited just below the upper surface of the slick by the force of gravity into a central reservoir 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 Skimmer typically recovers 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 increase of recovery efficiency.

The 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 150 meters.

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

With the integrated centrifugal screw pump that does not require priming, handle viscous oil, is tolerant of most types of debris and do not form oil/water emulsions.

With an external pump design of skimmer allows to add external pump. 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.

Weir Oil Skimmer – Oil Skimming Applications divided into three groups;

  • Offshore Oil Skimming
    High capacity floating oil skimmer that skims and separates oil from Open sea and offshore
  • Inland Waters + Coastal Waters Oil Skimming
    High or low capacity floating oil skimmer that skims and separates oil from inland waters and coastal water
  • Industrial Oil Skimming
    High or low capacity floating oil skimmer that skims and separates within various industrial settings ranging from manufacturing and processing activities to wastewater management in hazardous and corrosive environments such as
    (Wastewater + Food processing + Refineries + Steel Mills – Scale pits + Vegetable Oil Processing Plant+ Chemical Plant + Oil Processing)
