Paddle belt skimmers use a series of paddles, attached to a belt, to lift oil out of the water. The basic concept includes a series of paddles that draw a wedge of oil and water up a ramp. The paddles move the fluid over the top of the incline and into a sump where it is pumped off. There are several variations of this skimming principle but the basic concept is much the same.
