Skimmers offer an economical way to remove the bulk of dispersed oil and solids, within a liquid. They require no maintenance or lubrication. they are designed to push the floating scum flowing from the center of the tank towards the periphery where the scum scraper will collect the scum and dump it into scum box, where it is discharged.
OVIVO® SkimTM Skimmer
The OVIVO® SkimTM skimmer technology provides an economical way to remove the bulk of dispersed oil and solids within a liquid. Ovivo has designed vertical and compact models, well suited for offshore installations, in addition to our standard horizontal designs. The equipment can be adapted to serve as a produced-water degassing vessel. Our range of skimmers have been designed around the separation of specific oil droplet sizes, typically 120-150 microns, depending on the allowable residence time.
