Ro-Clean Presents New Disc Skimmer
Thursday, August 05, 1999
Ro-Clean Desmi has introduced a new disc skimmer for the recovery of floating oils - Ro-Disc, a high efficient skimmer for inland waters and industrial process applications such as separators and tanks.
Ro-Disc has a single bank of rotating oleophilic (oil attracting) discs driven by a hydraulic motor. Oil is recovered from the water's surface as it sticks to the disc surface. As the discs are rotated through the skimmer, head oil is scraped off and collected in the sump on an ongoing basis.
Skimmed oil is removed by a hydraulically driven peristaltic pump, which is capable of running dry and will self-prime.
