The Action Petroleum Multi-Skimmer Model 24 relies on adhesion of oil to the surface of a rotating drum. As the drum rotates through the oil/water surface, the oil adheres to the drum and removed by a scraper. The product is collected in a sump and is pumped away by an integrated pump.
The Action Petroleum Multi-Skimmer Model 24 can be used in a protected water environment where advancing water is no greater than .5 knots.
