Rotary Pipe Skimmer and Environmental Valve Services

At Environmental Valve Products, our Rotary Pipe Skimmer effectively removes floating products, such as oil, animal fats, flocculants, and more. Our solution can be used on American Petroleum Institute (API) type separators, clarifiers, and skim tanks.

The skimmer is ideal for heavy or viscous products. It can also accommodate a heater line from side to side, maintaining proper temperatures for products that may set up when temperatures get too low.

Manual and Automatic Skimming: Precise Control

The Rotary Pipe Skimmer can be manually fine-tuned to drain off precisely the amount of oil desired. As the product spills into the skimmer, it flows by gravity out of the skim pipe through the wall of the separator and into a product storage tank for accumulation and subsequent removal.

Periodic checks of the product level in the separator are required. For those seeking a more automated solution, automatic skimming is possible, though it requires a continuous thick product level.


Corrosion-Proof Materials: Durable and Low Maintenance

Constructed from corrosion-proof materials, including PVC and fiberglass, our Rotary Pipe Skimmer can operate in a wide variety of environments with minimal attention to maintenance.

Upon request, the skimmer can be constructed entirely of fiberglass for extreme temperature or chemical conditions.

Function: Removing Surfacing Liquids and Hydrocarbons

Our Rotary Pipe Skimmer efficiently removes surfacing liquid and hydrocarbons from continuous phase processes. It helps ensure the optimal performance of your oil-water separator and other environmental valve equipment.
