Weir Skimmer 500/800

The light-weight and self-adjusting LWS 500/800’s are user friendly oil recovery skimming units. The skimmers have high recovery capacity in all operating conditions and utilizes the most commonly used skimming principles. The skimmers are designed to provide many years of reliable service and are low maintenance.

The large diameter of the LWS’s with their free-floating weir provides excellent wave following characteristics. The high buoyancy-to-weight ratio and low inertial mass give the weir skimmers excellent sea-keeping features.

The LWS 500/800 are designed to operate together with a suction or vacuum system or alternatively with an integrated Lamor GTA pump. The hopper and float arms are manufactured using marine grade aluminum and stainless steel with three polyethylene floats. Based on the skimmer configuration with e.g. suction, pump or brush adapter, the floatation level can be adjusted. It has a single central lifting point and is therefore easily deployed in various environments with minimal manpower.
