Minimax 25 in action

Minimax 25


The Minimax 25 skimmer is a light-weight new generation modular oil skimming unit that is easily transported and assembled. The Minimax 25 is designed to recover oil from e.g. inland waters, rivers, and nearshore.

These proven, easy to handle, small skimming systems are designed for more quieter areas, including shorelines, basins, tanks, harbors and rivers

How it works 

The portable skimmer can be used in all terrains and environments, including Arctic conditions and remote locations. The Minimax 25 consists of only three easily assembled parts, a skimmer body, a collection hopper, and a brush module. Therefore it can be disassembled in less than a minute facilitating cleaning and service. Disc and drum modules are available as additional optional equipment. The skimmer utilizes the Lamor next generation brush wheel technology, which combines high oil recovery capacity with less than 2 % free water content. The skimmer’s frame and hopper made of molded polyethylene are light-weight, durable and easy to clean. The skimmer is entirely hydraulically operated and its power requirement is low. The unit is intended to be connected to a suction pump or vacuum system. The recovery capacity of the Minimax 25 is certified by Bureau Veritas at 26.8 m³/h (118 gals/min). Moreover, the skimmer’s recovery rate and efficiency have been fully tested at Ohmsett testing facilities.
