Which Businesses Need Oil Skimmers?
Water is extensively used in numerous industries as a coolant. These industries include, but are not limited to, the petrochemical industry, the steel industry and the canning industry. Food processing plants, waste water plants and oil water treatment systems also use processes that require water as a coolant.
As water is utilized in the production process, difficulties occur when the water becomes tainted with tramp oils. In extreme cases, these waste oils are evident as floating droplets of oil or a film on the surface of the coolant. It is crucial to remove these oils from the water, whether the water is to be recirculated or disseminated into the local water supply. Tramp oil is a contaminant and, if not properly handled, it becomes toxic waste. It is also necessary to remove these pollutants in order for the machinery involved to run as efficiently as possible. This requires a specific type of skimmer for the removal of tramp oils.
