Micromax skimmer



The MicroMax Skimmer is designed to separate oil from water and especially remove oil from tanks or pits.

How it works

The MicroMax Floating Skimmer, which uses the proven Lamor brush skimmer technology, consists of a frame with two floats. The recovered oil is lead into a hopper behind the brush wheel, and from where the oil is sucked using a separate suction pump. The MicroMax is manufactured from aluminum and weighs only 11 kg (24 lbs). The skimmer can be lowered to skimming position through a manhole of approx. 550 mm diameter. The skimmer is entirely hydraulically operated and its power requirement is low. The unit is designed to be connected to a suction pump or vacuum system. Our preferred solution is the Lamor LPP 6 HA C75 hydraulic power pack with a built- in Spate 75 pump.
