MARKLEEN MULTISKIMMER MS 20 is compact, lightweight units used for recovering all types of oil. Diesel oil, grease and emulsions are quickly and efficiently recovered with a minimum of water content. All components used in MARKLEEN MULTISKIMMERS are robust and water and oil resistant.
Depending on the viscosity of the substance to be recovered, standard rotating brush MARKLEEN MULTISKIMMER may be converted to drum or disc skimmers in just a few minutes and without the use of tools. Thus MARKLEEN MULTISKIMMERS offer the advantages of having three skimmers in one.
Multi Skimmers operate based on the well proven oleophilic (oil attracting) properties of some materials and recover light oils through to heavy crude.
The rotating module powered by a hydraulic or pneumatic motor creates a current which draws the substance to be recovered towards the skimmer. The oil sticks firmly to the chosen module which is made of oil attracting and water repelling material. It then reaches the comb or scraper where it is separated and poured into an intermediate tank in the skimmer head. Due to the hydrophobic (water repelling) effect of the module, the water drains down before reaching the scraper. A transfer pump, totally integrated into the MultiSkimmer, except on the MS 10, then transfers the oil to an external tank.
