Oil Skimmer

Passive Skimmer for Oil Spill Clean Up

passive oil skimmerQuestion:I am in need of an oil skimmer that will be used in water. This would be used in a storm drain for any small oil spills, so we don't need anything big or expensive. Do you have anything that would work?

Answer: Absolutely, GEI Works offers the OX Oil SheenSorb, a passive oil skimmer. This modest oil skimmer is great for small jobs, especially those in tight, confined places. A combination of polyethylene foam and polypropylene absorbent fibers allow the oil skimmers to soak up a gallon of oil or other hydrocarbons from the surface of the water. With a 6' tether, this passive skimmer can be lowered or tossed into hard-to-reach places.
