The ORTS® from Oil Skimmers, Inc. is a complete oil removal and transfer system, all on one skid. The system efficiently removes oil from the surface of water, stores the recovered oil, and transfers it to a remote location. The system is available in a wide variety of configurations, and is completely customizable to meet any application requirement.
With its rugged construction, wear-resistant materials, and gearing engineered to require minimal power and maintenance, the Oil Skimmers Inc. ORTS is a versatile, flexible and cost efficient oil removal system.
The ORTS is applied in a variety of industries from rail yards to steel mills, positioned over or near ponds, pits, and sumps to allow the free-floating collector tube to continuously pick up oil as it easily snakes over and around any floating debris.
The ORTS comes pre-wired and ready to go with a controller to power the skimmer, and integrate standard and optional equipment, including pumps, timers, tank level switches, and more. The system can be heated and fully insulated to operate 24/7 in the harshest winter conditions.
The ORTS is used in a variety of applications around the world. A sampling includes:
Standard ORTS configurations feature an oil collection tank, with built-in decanter. The oil skimmer is mounted directly above the oil/water decanter portion of the tank. The unit can be placed at the edge of pits, walkways or platforms so the skimmer's tube drops straight down to float of the surface of the contaminated water.
The Extended Reach ORTS features a 6 or 8 foot cantilever mount, or 12, 18, or 24-foot balanced boom mount for applications where the skimmer needs to be extended to skim oil from ponds, pits, or reach out over guard rails. The tank is sized specific to your application. For applications where a larger storage tank is required, and skimmer reach up to 18 feet is needed, the ORTS Extended Reach features a cantilever or balanced boom mounted to a 500-2000 gallon tank.
ORTS systems can be mobile. Some systems can be moved by forklift or pallet jack. Other ORTS systems tank can be mounted to a trailer for hauling from one location to another. Contact us to discuss all the options.
