The Oil Skimmers Model 5H is designed for efficient oil removal in areas where the unit can be located within 3 feet of the water level. The “H” stand for “horizontal” in that the tube operates horizontally. This unit is used for above-ground tanks, parts washers, and other applications where the skimmer can remain within 3 feet of the skimming area.
Also similar to our Model 6V Brill™, the Model 5H waste oil recovery system removes oily waste using an oil collector tube. Oil adheres to the outside of the floating closed-loop tube and is 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 skimmer and through scrapers that remove the oil. Then the tube returns to the water surface to collect more oil, while the recovered oil flows to a collection container.
