About The Barracuda 4 Belt Mop Oil Skimmer

The Barracuda 4 oil skimming system is designed for medium to large industrial applications such as pits, holding ponds, API separator waste tanks, or any location where waste oil collects. This unit is capable of pulling between 200 and 250 feet of Rope Mope and can achieve very high oil recovery rates. The Barracuda 4’s high recovery rates can be attributed to its unique ability to utilize large or small belt mop or rope mop.

Because of its design, the Barracuda 4 can be adapted to suit many applications. Standard units come with 1/2 hp, 120/1/60, hazardous location motors. However, other drive options are available including larger hp motors, variable speed drives, and single or 3 phase and 120/240V. Complete, skid mounted skimmer systems and winterization packages are also available.

The Barracuda 4S is a complete oil recovery system. This system is designed to remove and recover surface oil, collect it in its intermediate storage tank, and automatically activate the oil transfer pump.
