The Model 1230 Skimmer is a floating skim solution that follows the liquid surface ensuring that product is always drawn from the top of the liquid column.

Nonmetallic LLDPE Pontoon

  • Hollow LLDPE Pontoon provides superb buoyancy.
  • LLDPE Pontoon is non abrasive and will not damage interior coatings or components.
  • Pontoon offers superior resistance to acids and high-chloride contents.

Flexible Rugged Nitrile Composite Hose

  • Nitrile with Fabric and Wire Helix Matrix hose provides superior chemical and temperature performance to PVC alternatives
    Flexible hose allows skimmer placement where convenient, not dictated by booms or standpipes.
  • Suitable for harsh skimming applications including sour service, high chloride solutions and many more.

Stainless Trim

  • Metallic components in contact with fluid are stainless steel for chemical compatibility, including hose clamps, fasteners and nipples.

Outlet Flexibility

  • Hose comes standard with 2-1/2 NPT connection, which can be adapted to fit most any threaded or flanged internal tank outlet connection.

Skimmer As Float

  • The skimmer system, if appropriately positioned in the tank, can be used as a replacement for the float in a mechanical level indication system. See Skimmer As Float for tank preparation requirements.
