Passive Oil Skimmers

Floating Skimmers for Oil Clean Up

passive oil skimmerOil skimmers are floating devices used to skim oil off the surface of water or liquid. Many skimmers use oil-attracting materials to help draw the oil to the system and facilitate a more complete clean up. Depending on your specific water area and conditions, different skimmers might work better depending on the conditions.

GEI Works offers passive oil skimmers for small oil spills. Covered in a net casting, floating foam and absorbent fibers soak up any oil or hydrocarbons on the surface of the water. The 6' long tether keeps the oil skimmer in the contaminated place. With a 1 gallon capacity, this oil skimmer works best in narrow or confined areas, such as tanks, sumps, and catch basins.
