Oil Grabber® Model 4 Oil  Skimmer
For Harsh, Industrial Wastewater Treatment

The Abanaki Model 4 Oil Grabber is a dependable and effective means of  removing oil from water and water-base solutions. It utilizes a continuous  belt and wiper to remove up to 20 gallons of oil per hour from the fluid  surface. The belt, operating on a motor and pulley system, runs through  contaminated liquid to pick up oil from the surface. A single unit elevates  and separates oil, lifts oil any distance without the need of expensive  pumps, and maintains oil skimming efficiency with fluctuating fluid level.

Ask Skimmerman your questions and they will be answered in an email. Read below to see Skimmerman's answers to other questions.

Daniel Cross asked:
Oil and grease tends to become solid in the surface of  separation tanks in food industry. How do the skimmer works in  this situation?. Are they provided with a heater?. Thanks for  your answer.

Skimmerman says:
An oil skimmer can be used effectively in this application  by utilizing a Mat Buster to break up the solids. As the skimmer  picks up the oil and grease it is discharged into a heated  trough or hopper (depending on the model selected), liquefied  and discharged to a tramp oil container. As happens so often  here at Abanaki, the Mat Buster grew out of the needs of our  clients—such as you!

Karen Sohlberg Asked:
My oil skimmer isn't picking up oil from my coolant sump  like it did a few days ago. What is going on?

Skimmerman Says:
Your coolant may contain rust inhibitors that are coating  the metal belt causing a barrier between the the belt and the  oil. Try changing to a synthetic belt material such as Elastomer  or Polymer. Rust inhibitors do not affect them.
