Bow Collector

Bow collector

The Lamor Bow Collector is a stiff brush conveyor belt unit that effectively recovers oil and debris. The LBC recovers oils of all types and viscosities and can operate in choppy sea conditions without disrupted performance and its brush conveyor automatically separates and recovers oils, emulsions, and oily debris from the water.

“Lamor Bow Collectors are ideal on OSRVs in rivers, harbors and along rough shorelines”

How it works

The bow collector operates most effectively at vessel speeds of up to four knots. The forward motion of the vessel concentrates surface oil and oily debris into the brush conveyor for separation and recovery. Recovered oil contains less than 5% free water. The skimmer module is hydraulically powered and has a tilt cylinder for changing between storage and operational positions. Due to the design of the bow collector, the skimmer can be deployed with a minimum of effort while maintaining maximum safety. The skimmer can be deployed within minutes upon arrival at any spill site.
