Side Cassette Oil Recovery System
The Lamor Side Cassette Oil Recovery System LSC is a vessel mounted advancing skimming system for medium to large size vessels. Its design is based on the proven stiff brush oil recovery technology that offers high performance and safety for offshore oil spill recovery operations.
The LSC is supplied with an outrigger arm and sweeping boom that deflect oil and debris from a wide area into its side box for processing. The remarkable oil recovery rate of < 5 % water intake is achieved at vessel speeds of up to 4 knots. The LSC can be operated by a small crew.
The unique side collector design processes surface water and oil to the brush system for recovery while water pressure is released from the rear bottom of the cartridge. The LSC is a chain brush conveyor oil recovery system that is very effective when recovering high viscosity oils, emulsions and tar balls. It can also be deployed when large amounts of floating debris are present.
The recovery capacity has been certified by Bureau Veritas and tested by e.g. the Swedish Coast Guard.
The technical specifications vary on the size of the Side Cassette System and vessel, please see the Downloadables-section for a more thorough overview of the System as well as some examples of the Cassettes, or contact your nearest sales representative for more information.
