Oil skimmer is a device which is used to remove the oil particles present in water or floating on the surface of the water. if you are going to choose an oil skimmer, you need to take care of many things such as: operating condition, the temperature of solvent at the time of in and out, removal capacity, etc. To know more about the Oil skimmer, check this Presentation, hope it will guide you a lot.
Oil skimmer is a device, which is used for removal of
oil particles present on the surface of liquid. They are
also used for oily water treatment system. However,
there are different types of Oil skimmer, designed on
the basis of their flow rate.
Basically there are three things to consider, before
choosing an oil skimmer.
Tank or Sump Characteristics
The performance of oil skimmer depends on many
conditions such as: temperature of liquid at the time
of in and out, PH level of the solution, solvents and
Oil skimmer measure removal rate per hour. The
rate of oil skimmer depends on the viscosity of
oil. Usually, there are two main factors, on which
removal capacity of oil skimmer depends, i.e.
Water Content and Residual oil.
Before choosing an oil skimmer you should also
take care of the size or design, shape and location,
where oil skimmer is going to be installed. You
should also consider the variation in water level and
possible emulsions present in the water.
