Vikoma T9 (Floating) Skimmer

The system is ideal for use in oil/water interceptors, ballast ponds/lagoons, settling tanks and storm water interceptors. The standard system consists of the T9 skimmer head, an electro-hydraulic power pack, an on-board positive displacement VikoPump and all the necessary hoses. The speed of the on-board pump is automatically controlled by the level of oil in the skimmer.

The T9 skimmer system is highly efficient for use in the removal of a wide range of water contaminated hydrocarbon based pollutants. The system is designed for continuous use in both hazardous and corrosive environments. It can be supplied either as free floating, for use when there are significant water level changes, or fixed, to be used where a “C” cup or skim pipe system is in place and water levels are constant. The skimmer has been sucessfully used in the following industries: Oil/Gas – Iron/Steel -Chemicals -Food – Power Generation.

Key features and benefits:

  • The system is manufactured in 316L stainless steel as standard to deal with the most common industrial environments (other materials such as Super Duplex, Inconnel and Hasteloy are available if required)
  •  The unique T-discTM design, which is the result of several years of research by the University of Manchester, significantly increases the rate of recovery
  • The system can be supplied to meet the requirements of ATEX
  •  The recovery rate is up to 9m3/hr – The system will recover in excess of 98% oil content which can be recovered or sold
  •  The electro-hydraulic power pack comes complete with a control valve to adjust the speed of the T-discsTM to match the levels of pollutant
  • By rapid and constant removal of hydrocarbons the system reduces odours, fire risk and the release of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere
  • The T9 skimmer will remove a wide range of floating oils including kerosene, naphtha, vegetable oils, fish oils, diesel, gas oils, crude and tramp oils
  •  Return on investment can be achieved within 3 months depending on status of the process.
