Salt water is a byproduct of oil and natural gas extraction. Typically, the salt water contains residual oil. For companies involved in the disposal of salt water, removing the residual oil from the water offers potentially significant economic benefit.
One salt water disposal facility successfully used a Model 6V Brill® oil skimmer with the free floating collector tube, from Oil Skimmers, Inc. to remove oil from its disposal pit. The Model 6V performed flawlessly and provided significant economic benefits and an ROI measured in weeks, not months or years. The disposal facilities’ business grew to the point where additional oil removal capability was required. In response to the need, Oil Skimmers, Inc. offered the heavy duty, high capacity Model 7V Brill® tube-type oil skimmer.
