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.
- Metallic components in contact with ﬂuid are 316 Stainless steel for chemical compatibility, including hose clamps, fasteners and nipples.
- 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.
