The Cascade Skimmer is an adjustable weir skimmer designed to be particularly effective in large oil spills where a high oil recovery rate is required.
The system is supplied with the Cascade head, GP60/4 power pack and control console. It is capable of handling a wide range of oil viscosities. It has a floating circular weir device with an onboard, hydraulically driven, positive displacement VikoPump. The weir lies just below the oil surface and the top layer of the oil flows over the weir lip and is pumped away to storage. A remote control console allows the operator to optimise skimmer recovery by varying the pump speed and hydraulically adjusting the depth of the weir relative to the oil thickness.
