Inadequate oil removal equipment could be costing your manufacturing company money.
In this post, we discuss how tube type oil skimmers—those that use a closed-loop tube on the water’s surface to attract floating oil or grease—can save you money compared to alternatives.
1. Efficiently Removes Oil
Because they can’t get clogged with floating debris (leaves, sticks, etc.), tube skimmers consistently outperform fixed oil skimmers (belt, drum and disc) at efficiently and reliably removing petroleum-based oil, fats, greases, and oily wastes on the water’s surface. The tube simply snakes around the water, moving the debris aside, as it removes the oil.
2. Lowers Filtration, Water Treatment and Disposal Costs
Effective oil removal translates into less costs related to filtration, chemicals and other forms of secondary water treatment.
And it doesn’t stop there. Since tube skimmers capture and concentrate waste oil with little-to-no free water, disposal costs are also less. Higher waste oil concentrations lessens the volume and cost of vacuum collection, and off-site recycling or disposal.
