Komara Maxi

The Komara™ Maxi- the ultimate high capacity skimming system that will recover a wide range of oils with more than 98% oil content.

The Komara™ Maxi skimmer system is a self-contained, high-capacity oil recovery system, comprising an oleophilic disc skimmer with on-board pump, plus a powerful diesel powerpack and all the associated hoses and connectors. This system will operate in most environments and recover a wide range of oils at 60m³/hr, with more than 98% oil pick-up.

The Komara™ Maxi can be used in ports and harbours, shoreline operations, coastal waters and almost any similar environment where oils are required to be removed from a water source.  The KomaraTM Maxi will operate in open waters with waves up to two metres in height and has been successfully employed in locations all around the globe with emergency response organisations, coastguards and port authorities.

Key features and benefits:

  • Six separate banks of discs create a 360 degree flow of pollutant toward the Maxi
  • The skimmer discs operate smoothly even at low speeds, giving than more than 98% oil pick-up, which effectively eliminates the need for costly separation or disposal of dirty water
  • The disc scrapers are manufactured from a specially designed flexible polymer, which precisely follows the contour of the disc and ensures that even the lightest oils are recovered very efficiently
  • The on-board positive displacement Vikopump enables high volumes of high viscosity contaminants to be recovered and discharged
  • The pump rating is 60m3/hr and the system oil recovery rate is 60m3/hr
  • The GP30-2 diesel powerpack is extremely efficient and, as standard, it incorporates important safety features to ensure that it is safe for operation in oil spill situations
  • The skimmer head has a built-in automatic float/demand valve that automatically controls the speed of the on-board oil pump.
