Find Out More About The Barracuda Of Oil Skimming Systems

Where The Name Comes From

Ambar Barracuda Oil Skimming Systems get their name from the barracuda a ray-finned fish known for its large size, fearsome appearance and ferocious behavior. So why do Ambar’s Oil Skimmers share a name with the fish found in tropical and sub-tropical oceans?  The barracuda comes in different sizes just like Ambar’s Barracuda Oil Skimming Systems. The barracuda’s snake like appearance  resembles the look of the rope mops used by Ambar’s Barracuda Oil Skimmers. Most importantly, Barracuda Oil Skimming Systems have an unquenched thirst for what’s called  tramp oils. Tramp oils  are a combination of hydraulic oil, lubricating oil, greases, and protective metal coatings that leak from a machines into coolant pools.

How The Systems Work

When tramp oils combine with other pollutants in a coolant, they can form a viscous texture that blocks the machine’s lines and sprays. Barracuda oil skimming systems use a rope mop to remove tramp oils from those pools. The rope mops have oil attracting fibers woven or sewn into them. They can move across the pool or go down vertically into pit-like pools. The oil sticks to the outside of the fibers. The rope mop types of Ambar Oil Skimmers have power trains available to adapt to most operating conditions including electric, diesel, pneumatic and more. Recovery rates range from one gallon per hour to 8000 gallons per hour.
