Multimax 50

The Multimax LAM 50 is a brush chain-type free-floating oil skimmer designed to recover oil in fast-flowing rivers, oil ponds, harbors or as an advancing side sweep skimmer. The skimmer can be used in all terrains and environments, including Arctic conditions. The one 3-row oleophilic V-brush chain bank separates the oil from the water effectively and lifts it to the specially designed brush cleaner from where the oil is directed to the oil transfer pump. The skimmer has a special flow design to improve oil recovery in stationary conditions. The double rotation direction capability enhances the recovery of light to heavy viscous oils. The skimmer has robust detachable aluminum floats, aluminum frame and single lifting point making it easy to lift, operate, clean and store. The LAM 50 skimmer with its standard heated scraper and hopper makes it an effective skimming unit in Arctic conditions, which has been tested at Ohmsett testing facilities. The skimmer has been deployed effectively in several oil recovery operations worldwide. During certified capacity tests, conducted by Bureau Veritas, a recovery rate of 51.2 m³/h (225 GPM) was achieved.
