Cleveland, Ohio (PressExposure) March 20, 2012 -- A large steel manufacturer based in Ohio is now able to meet wastewater regulations with the help of two Model 6V Oil Holding and Distribution Tank Skimmer Systems from Oil Skimmers, Inc. The outdoor wastewater lagoons at the steel plant contained oil from the manufacturing process, storm water run-off, and various types of debris such as leaves and grass. The oil in the lagoon precluded discharging the water into a nearby river, and the debris in the lagoon hindered other oil removal methods that the manufacturer had tried previously. Enter Oil Skimmers, Inc's Model 6V Oil Holding and Distribution Tank (OHDT) Skimming System.
Oil Skimmers, Inc. modified their standard Model 6V OHDT Units so that the debris could be easily channeled into a separate container, and any small amount of water that is picked up with the oil could be returned back to the lagoon. Since they are kept outdoors, both oil skimming systems were completely winterized, and a pump was installed to pump oil to a larger holding tank when necessary.
The standard Model 6V OHDT Skimming System includes a mounting system, a decanting tank, and an oil holding tank. The entire system is in one skid mounted package and arrives ready to operate - no assembly is necessary. The engineering team at Oil Skimmers, Inc. can customize the system to meet the needs of a particular application.
Oil Skimmers, Inc., engineers and manufactures the original Brilltm tube oil skimmers. The oil recovery systems can be customized and sized to any specification. Durable construction and a rugged design ensure trouble free operation 24/7 in a wide variety of industries and applications worldwide, including steel, mining, power & energy, and food production. These oil removal systems can remove waste oil continuously. The waste oil can then be sold or recycled. Request more information at http://www.oilskim.com.
