After 5 Decades, Brill® Tube Type Oil Skimmers are Still the Best

Brill tube oil skimmers are still the best

For 50 years, Oil Skimmers, Inc. has designed and developed oil skimmers, oil removal systems, and custom engineered solutions for over 35,000 applications in all industries, in 119 countries around the world.

Our company's founder invented the tube type oil skimmer to ensure efficient, effective oil removal in any application, small or large. Five decades later, we offer a full line of industrial oil removal equipment as well as custom engineering capabilities to meet every oil removal need.

The original Brill tube type oil skimmer remains a very important and versatile element of our product line, and is still one of the best methods available to remove oil from industrial process water and wastewater. Its design, rugged construction, durability, versatility, efficiency, and effectiveness is unsurpassed.

Why the Tube?

The collector tube on Brill tube skimmers is made from our unique formula which creates a tube that loves oil. It is designed to withstand the most abusive industrial environments involving changes in shape, movement, temperature, and chemical interaction. The tube floats on the surface of process water, wastewater, or coolant, and efficiently removes all petroleum-based oils, fats, or greases, as well as animal and vegetable oils.

Free-floating oil collector tube

Benefits of the collector tube:

  • Efficiently Removes Oil
  • Oil Sticks to the Tube, Water Doesn't
  • Unaffected by Floating Debris
  • Adjusts to Fluctuating Water Levels
