Rob Fiorilli Oil Skimmers, Inc, Eastern Region Sales Manager and David Field, the companyâs representative in Illinois were demonstrating how the oil skimmer Model 6V Brillâ¢ oil-recovery system works in multiple applications.
Oil sticks to the outside of a specially formulated polyurethane closed-loop collector tube that snakes over and around debris. It is lifted out of the water and is drawn through scrapers that remove the oil. The clean tube is returned to the water surface to gather more oil. Tubes withstand temperatures up to 200o F., and will not fracture in freezing conditions. Designed with non-clogging, long-lasting components, the Model 6V unit runs unattended 24 hours a day, year-round, and is the most dependable, cost-effective and uncomplicated solution for removing oily wastes from water.

All waste oil can be decanted into drums to be stored or recycled to sell. Durable, uncomplicated construction ensures an operation lifespan of 25 to 30 years.
