The company’s new Maxi-Skimmer Model SSV/5 variable collection rate oil skimmer includes accessories such as a timer for automatic control, a ground fault interrupter for electrical safety, a 3’ hose for the oil outlet and a handle for portability.

The skimmer is designed for wastewater needs, monitoring wells and large metalworking coolant tanks and parts washers. The standard design uses a 4" wide polyurethane or stainless steel belt that can reach from 1’-50’. Also, 1", 2" or 3" belts are available.

The oil collection rate is adjusted by rotating a small knob on the control panel. It can adjust from about 0 to 20 gallons per hour. The company says the skimmer is most useful for applications where the oil removal rate is not known, when the rate varies from time to time or when there is a need to remove oil faster or slower. The skimmer is also corrosion-proof, as it is made of stainless steel, nylon and UHMW bearing-grade polymer. Incoming 115 V power is converted to drive the 90 vdc gearmotor. The frame measures only 6" wide x 8" high x 12" long (with motor). Shipping weight is approximately 15 lbs. Optional accessories include a stand for discharge into a 55 gallon collection drum and a gravity-type oil/water separator that provide 100% oil.

To achieve unattended machining, some of the biggest challenges have related to basic details such as chips and coolant.
