MNL34: Chapter 4-Drum Skimmers

    Pages: 6    Published: Oct 1998


    Abstract

    An oleophilic drum skimmer uses adhesion of oil to the surface of a cylindrical drum for recovery. As the skimmer drum is rotated through the slick, oil adheres to the drum surface and is scraped off into a sump and then pumped away. Drum skimmers are typically powered by a remote power pack (hydraulic or air-driven), which results in a light, compact skimming head that is easily transported and highly maneuverable. There are also double, counter-rotating drum skimmers.
