Weir Skimmers

ABASCO WEIR SKIMMERS

ABASCO offers a wide variety of weir style skimmers suited for numerous applications in both oil spill and industrial applications. The weir skimmers require either a suction pump or vacuum system to collect the free floating hydrocarbons or other materials. Weir skimmers are designed for easy portability, rapid response and low cost removing floating oil that can flow over the weir.

Foilex Mini Skimmer

The Foilex Mini Skimmer is a free-floating suction skimmer with a 3-pontoon flotation frame. It is a suction weir type skimmer that is operated in combination with any type of external vacuum pump with a 22–132 gal/min (5–30 m3/hr) capacity. The system consists of:

  • Skimmer head
  • Suction hose
  • External pump unit
  • Discharge hose

The Mini Skimmer is equipped with a Foilex self-adjusting "skimmer ring" which controls the skimming depth by the pump suction flow. The "skimmer ring" lip will always stay parallel to the oil/water surface. Suitable oil layer thickness is 0-30 mm. Best performance for the Mini Skimmer is achieved in light to medium viscosity oils. The debris capability is dependent on the type of vacuum pump used but the skimmer is equipped with a rinsing net at the inlet side.

Capacity0–132 gal/min (0–30 m3/hr)
Weight74 lb (40 kg)
Length66 in (169 cm)
Width60 in (153 cm)
Height 24 in (60 cm)

Foilex Micro Skimmer

The Foilex Micro Skimmer is a free-floating suction skimmer with a three-pontoon flotation frame. It is a suction weir type skimmer that is operated in combination with any type of external vacuum pump with a 0–65 gal/min capacity. The system consists of:

  • Skimmer head
  • Suction hose
  • External pump unit
  • Discharge hose

The Micro Skimmer is equipped with a Foilex self-adjusting skimmer ring that controls the skimming depth by adjusting the suction pump flow. The skimmer ring lip always stays parallel to the oil/water surface. Suitable oil layer thickness is 0–1.2 inches (0–30 mm). Best performance for the Micro Skimmer is achieved in light to medium viscosity oils. Debris capability is dependent on the type of vacuum pump used, but the skimmer is equipped with a strainer at the inlet side.
