Abanaki’s compact, disk-type oil skimmer is designed for removing unwanted tramp oils from coolants and parts washers. The skimmer features a 1/2" × 12" plastic disk and a 110-V, fan-cooled gear motor. A boomerang-shaped wiper blade extends over the edge of the receiving trough to provide an extra inch of wiping area and increase the capacity of the skimmer. Also, the “no drip” wiper holder system is designed to prevent oil from dripping.
The disk skimmer is constructed entirely of plastic, including the motor housing and frame. The durable, polymer-engineered housing prevents corrosion. Other features include capped troughs that prevent oil drips and a sealed shaft to prevent premature motor wear from oil contamination. The disk skimmers are designed for mounting on drums and in places where the water level does not fluctuate and where small oil-removal capacity is required.
