Tramp Oil SkimmerApril 16, 2018
A tramp oil skimmer is provided to remove the accumulation of “tramp”
or unemulsified free oils from the surface of the “dirty” coolant tank.
This system incorporates two electrically powered squeegee rollers
capable of pulling up to 30 feet of “mop”, and achieving oil recovery rates of up
to 100 gallons/hour. The variable speed controller allows infinite adjustment of
Mop speed to achieve optimum purity of recovered product.
A single loop of attracting “mop” drops from the mop engine, travels
across the surface of the area to be skimmed, then is pulled back to the mop
engine where the oil is squeezed from the “mop” and manually collected.
