IPS Skimmer

The Lamor Industrial Process Skimmer is an oil recovery unit for industrial and process plant oil recovery. The unit is designed for removing oil and oil sheen and other floating products from the process plant tanks. The oil from e.g. industrial processes or hydraulic oil leaks is collected to the skimmer head with the flow created by an electrically driven propeller unit. The speed of the propeller can easily be adjusted from the control panel. An air blade is used to help to trap the oil inside the skimmer head before removal by the air operated ejectors. All oil from the process is collected and trapped to the skimmer head and therefore no oil escapes through the system and all oil wastage is eliminated. The oil removal from the skimmer head is carried out with the help of a compressed air ejector with special suction nozzles to remove only oil from the surface. The ejector's frequency can be adjusted freely from the control panel from intervals of a few seconds to several hours. The skimmer head has only one moving part and is by that means basically maintenance-free. All sensitive components are stored in IP 68 class control boxes which are dust-tight and tight against continuous immersion. Also, the electric motor which drives the flow propeller has an IP 68 rating. The handling and collecting of the floating oil of the IPS AIR Mk II is patent pending.
