Whether quality, reliability, maintenance, or long term costs; our solutions lead the field on all accounts.

  • Efficient Oil Removal
  • Versatile Application
  • Low Maintenance and User-Friendly Operation
  • Durable Construction for Long-Term Reliability

Manual and Automatic Skimming

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 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

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.
