Oil Water Separators

Floating Oil Skimmer System

Model 6-V

The Floating Oil Skimmer Model 6V oil recovery system removes contaminants that float on the surface of water such as animal, vegetable and petroleum-based oils, fats, greases, and oily wastes . The unit removes as much as 100 gallons of waste oil per hour and decants it into a drum so efficiently that the recovered waste oil is virtually water free. The Oil Skimmer Model 6V system is the dependable, cost-effective and uncomplicated solution for removing oily wastes from process and environmental applications.

Model 5-H Oil Skimmer

The Model 5-H is a compact oil skimmer specially designed for small or hard to get at places or in congested plant areas. It can be installed on open or closed tanks. Like the Oil Skimmer Model 6-V it is fully automatic and works 24 hours/day, 7days/week.

The Model 5-H oil skimming system removes waste oil by means of an oil collector tube. Oil adheres to the outside of the closed-loop tube and is slowly drawn across the surface of the water and into the oil skimmer.

The collector tube snakes over and around floating debris, adjusting automatically to changing water levels. The tube is drawn up into the Model 5-H oil skimmer and through scrapers that remove the oil. Then the tube returns to the water surface to collect more oil. The recovered oil flows to a collection container. 


  • Closed loop collector tube floats on water surface
  • Specifically designed for use in tanks or other covered or uncovered applications
  • Collector Tube performance is unaffected by any floating debris
  • Tube easily floats up or down to changing water level.
  • Gyrating action of Collector Tube breaks up oil crusts.
  • Virtually maintenance free operation
  • Unique anti-clogging design
  • Cast metal housing and structural members
  • High performance, quiet-running motor
  • Can operate unattended 24 hours/day, 7 days/week
  • Up to 30 year operating life
