Skimmers skim light fluids from the water surface.
Skimmers are mostly self-floating compact units that skim light fluids like gasolines, fuel oils, motor oils as well as both saturated and un-saturated powdered oil binders.
The skimmers must always be designed specifically to fit the surrounding conditions.
They can be operated with rotary, piston, diaphragm, hose, vacuum or eccentric screw pumps. The pump system must be chosen according to the medium.
The combination paired with warning devices ensures an effective oil defense.
