The MicroMax Floating Skimmer, which uses the proven Lamor brush skimmer technology, consists of a frame with two floats.

The MicroMax Skimmer is designed to separate oil from water and especially remove oil from tanks or pits. The recovered oil is lead into a hopper behind the brush wheel, and from where the oil is sucked using a separate suction pump. The MicroMax is manufactured from aluminum and weighs only 11 kg (24 lbs). The skimmer can be lowered to skimming position through a manhole of approx. 550 mm diameter.

The skimmer is entirely hydraulically operated and its power requirement is low. The unit is designed to be connected to a suction pump or vacuum system. Our preferred solution is the Lamor LPP 6 HA C75 hydraulic power pack with a built- in Spate 75 pump.
