The LORI Oil Recovery System (LORS) consists of the unique stiff-brush pack with deflection booms and the patented recovery channel system. The LORI utilizes oil deflection booms to gather floating oil and debris from the water surface on both sides of the vessel. The forward motion of the vessel creates a difference in pressure between the intake and outflow ports which provides an efficient flow through the recovery channel. Oil and debris are separated and removed from the flow. The brush-speed is adjusted according to the operating conditions. The channel that the LORI brush skimmer operates from creates a natural feeding and recirculation which enhances the effectiveness of the recovery process and allows faster skimming. The LORI bristles recover only oil and debris which eliminates the need to store contaminated water for maximum use of onboard storage capacity. When the system isn't in use it is stowed inside the hull to not disturb other activities of the vessel. The system is deployed in only a few minutes.
