Oil Spill Response Performance Review of Skimmers

Editor(s): Robert Schulze

ASTM Manual 34 provides you with all the information necessary for selecting skimmers for various applications.

In assembling reports to develop this publication, government agencies were able to find and provide single copies of many test reports-copies that were available no where else but in government archives-to use for analysis. This never-before published information is now available in condensed form to the user. The data is easily accessible, meaningful, and quickly understood.

Fifteen chapters cover the following skimmer types:• broom; • brush (chain and drum brush); • disc; • drum; • paddle belt; • stationary rope mop; • suspended rope mop; • ZRV rope mop; • sorbent belt; • fixed submersion plane; • submersion moving plane; • suction; • air conveyors; • weir and induced flow weir; • and advancing weir.

A valuable reference for spill response professionals working in oil companies, government agencies, consulting firms, oil spill co-ops, and spill recovery contracting firms.
