The Oil Skimmers, Inc. line of 3F floating weir skimmers is easily deployable and well-suited for a wide range of oil removal jobs.
3F Series floating weirs work in sumps, above ground storage tanks, parts washing tanks, equalization tanks, oil/water separators, and on settling and leachate ponds, lagoons or open water where selective adhesion skimming is not applicable and a floating oil skimmer must be used. In addition, 3F Series floating skimmers are ideal to safely and easily remove duckweed from ponds.
Built of long-lasting 304 or 316 stainless steel, 3F Series skimmers are lightweight and compact, yet rugged and able to deliver dependable skimming results month after month, year after year.
3F Series skimmers share several advantages with Oil Skimmers, Inc. proven tube-type skimmers, including continuous operation and ability to adjust to fluctuations in liquid level. Also, similar to our tube-type skimmers, 3F weir maintenance downtime is low as there are few moving parts requiring regular service.
The 3F 360 floating weir skimmer features 3 floats and a central intake weir capable of skimming oil from all directions (360 degrees). The center weir can be adjusted to take more or less of a cut of the oil layer on the water's surface. Ideal for spill clean up, or as the first stage of oil removal prior to separation or further wastewater treatment. A mesh screen surrounds the center weir to prevent intake of debris and clogging of the skimmer.
3F Flow Control weir skimmers are easily deployable and well-suited for a wide range of oil removal jobs. The design makes possible skimming high volumes of oil, and the weir self-adjusts based on flow rate, or can be adjusted by changing pump pressure. Easily set up by one person for fast spill response, or sudden increase in capacity. Like the 3F 360-Degree, the 3F Flow Control also features 360˚ attraction of oil floating on the surface of the water.
If you need to remove large quantities of oil in a limited amount of time and accomplish that removal at high rates, 3F Series floating weir skimmers are the solution. These skimmers can be set up and deployed easily by one person — a distinct advantage when fast response is required because of a spill, leak or sudden increase in oil volume.

Weir skimmers quickly, easily, and safely skim oil, grease, and other floating solids like duckweed from the surface of water. Removing oil first, before other wastewater treatment like ultra-filtration or chemical treaments, makes the processes more effective and less costly. If oil remained in the wastewater to blind filters and effect chemical treatment, regular maintenace and frequent, costly replacement of filters and chemicals would be required.
In any application where oil or other contaminant is floating freely on the surface of water, but implemenation of a Brill™ tube type oil skimmer does not apply. This could be due to location, space limitations, power supply, the substance being recovered does not adhere to the tube, or the required recovery rate exceeds that of tube skimmer.
