How the Model 6V Works

The Oil Skimmers Model 6V Brill® waste oil recovery system removes oil from water using a specially formulated collector tube:

  • Oil adheres to the outside of the floating closed-loop tube as it is drawn across the surface of the contaminated water and into the oil skimmer
  • Unlike other types of skimmer skimmers, which can get clogged by floating debris, the tube type skimmer snakes over and around floating debris, adjusting automatically to changing water levels
  • The tube is then drawn up into the oil skimmer and through scrapers that remove the oil
  • The tube returns to the water surface to collect more oil
  • Recovered oil flows into a collection container
