The BARRACUDA 6 oil skimming systems are 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 100 and 1000 feet of Rope Mope and can achieve oil recovery rates 50 -1500 gallons per hour.
The BARRACUDA 6 high recovery rates can be attributed to its super large squeegee rollers that allow for higher lifts in tall tanks.
The Barracuda 6 incorporates the oil adhesion properties of the oleophilic “Rope Mop” or “Belt Mop”. Operation is simple – a single loop of oil attracting “mop” drops from the mop engine, travels across the surface of the area to be skimmed, then is pulled back to the mop engine where the oil is squeezed from the mop.
Because of its design, the Barracuda 6 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, 1 or 3 phase, 50 Hz and 120/240V. Complete, skid mounted skimmer systems and winterization packages are also available. Call 866-462-6227 for details.
