The “Aquaskim” belt-type oil skimmer is designed for removing floating contaminants from industrial parts washer solution tanks, coolant sumps, and other oil-contaminated applications. Removing floating oils prolongs the life of the aqueous cleaning solution. The unit is constructed of stainless steel, utilizes a 4″ wide stainless steel oil skimmer belt, and has a lift-off fiberglass hood which covers internal components. The Aquaskim can remove up to 6 gal/hr of floating oils, depending upon the viscosity and solution condition. The Aquaskim oil skimmer is designed for use with water-based industrial parts washers and parts cleaning systems.
