Advancing weir skimmers are a variation on conventional weirs in that the forward motion of the skimming system provides the flow into the skimmer. Depending on the size of the weir opening, the skimmer will accept most of what it encounters, allowing it to handle highly viscous oils. Advancing weir skimmers typically recover large volumes of water; oil/water separation should be considered to increase overall efficiency.
