The Ro-Skim integrated boom and skimmer system uses a modified section of Ro-Boom to mount a hydraulically-controlled inlet weir skimmer, together with a choice of DOP pump, to recover a wide range of oils in a traditional sweep.
The Ro-Skim is normally fixed to be at the apex of the boom in a J or U configuration. However, the design allows for more than one Ro-Skim in a sweep and these can be either joined together or strategically positioned in the cusp. Either way, capacities and areas of influence can be significantly increased.
The Ro-Skim is positioned at the optimum location for oil recovery – it is essentially a special section of Ro-Boom that has been fitted with a weir and DESMI DOP 250 or DOP 160 pump. The weir is ideally placed to collect the oil that is building up against the face of the Ro-Boom.
One or two Ro-Skim units can be coupled together in one long boom assembly offering a higher recovery rate. The Ro-Skim is ideal for open sea sweeping operations.
The Ro-Skim integrated boom and skimmer system is available in five sizes to match either Ro-Boom 1000, 1300, 1500, 1800 or 2000.
