The Flow Weir skimmer operates on the weir principle with design features that make it an efficient, maintenance free, low cost unit. A lightweight design for deployment and operation by one man. The Flow Weir skimmer is ideal for a mobile emergency response unit or as a permanently deployed unit. The three floats are fitted on collapsible arms which fold down allowing the unit to fit through a 50 cm ( 20 inch ) diameter manhole. When folded, the Flow Weir Skimmer takes up a minimum amount of space making it ideal for use on emergency response trailers. The Flow Weir skimmer has no moving parts during operation, and its simple manual set up system is far more reliable than any automatic system. Its stainless steel construction makes it rugged and resistant to failure even after years of continuous use.


Manufactured throughout in 316 stainless steel giving rugged maintenance free operation in arduous conditions. The weir intake is designed for best hydrostatic operation and maximum throughput without obstruction The oil pollutant is discharged through the Camlock connection to a hose fitted directly below the weir. The weir is easily adjusted should the conditions, such as oil viscosity, change.
