Free floating skimmer

Lamor free floating (LFF) skimmer

The Lamor Free Floating (LFF) Skimmer is a high capacity brush chain skimmer designed to recover oil in offshore operations. It has excellent wave following characteristics and is suitable for use in all environments, including Arctic conditions.

“The LFF Offshore skimmers have proven themselves in large oil spills to be very effective at high capacities, thus reducing OSR operational requirements”

How it works
The skimmer has two 4-row oleophilic V-brush chains that separate the oil from the water effectively and lifts the oil to a specially designed brush scraper from where the oil is directed to the oil transfer pump. The double rotation direction capability enhances the recovery of light to heavy viscous oils. The skimmer has a robust aluminum frame and floats with a single lifting point which makes the LFF 100 easy to lift, operate, clean and store. The LFF 100 has a heated scraper and hopper for effective skimming in Arctic conditions and is equipped with thrusters for mobility. The skimmer has been deployed effectively in several oil recovery operations worldwide.


  • Suitable for recovery of all oil viscosities, including weathered crude
  • Enhanced recovery due to brush rotation in both directions
  • Enhanced oil flow due to special design

Scenarios of use

  • Offshore
  • Harbors
  • Bays
