At SKIM-IT our goal is to help and support the UK’s general engineering process, by offering a range of high-quality oil skimming products and ensuring that their business receives a high return on investment.
We’ve been able to provide a large number of businesses with a low-cost solution for dealing with tramp oil. Each one of our units is designed to be compact and durable, along with a one-year warranty.
We’re proud to be presenting our range of SKIM-IT oil skimmers, with this range you can remove tramp oil from your coolant tank more effectively and efficiently.
Tramp oil begins to build up in the coolant tank when your machinery starts to produce grease and oil, often found in modern machine tools. This is often produced from the hydraulic press, gearboxes, spindles and sideways lubrication systems.
Skimmers work by running a disk or belt through the coolant and tramp oil mixture to separate the two substances. If skimmers aren’t used, it can cause a build-up of tramp oil and affect the coolant quality, causing a severely unpleasant smell and increased risk of workers handling it, developing skin problems such as dermatitis. A build-up of tramp oil also increases the deterioration rate of your coolant fluid, costing your business more to replace and dispose of your existing coolant and tramp oil solution.
SKIM-IT belt skimmers can effectively move the tramp oil to the surface of the coolant tank, regardless of the amount of oil that is on the top of the liquid coolant. Using our belt skimmers, you will be able to process up to twelve litres of contaminated oil per hour. Each one is able to withstand temperatures between eighty to one hundred degrees Celsius. We have two versions available, the 110v and the 240v making it easier for you to find the right skimmer that fits your needs.
SKIM-IT disk skimmers work in a similar way, but the disk can be smooth or have grooves (depending on how much oil needs to be collected) on each side, helping to collect more oil as they move through the solution. Disk skimmers are the perfect solution for small to medium-sized coolant tanks, as they can be fitted to any flat surface that has access to the coolant and oil mixture. With our disk skimmers, you will be able to process up to fifteen litres per hour of the contaminated coolant.
