Brill® tube-type oil skimmers from Oil Skimmers, Inc. feature our free-floating oil collector tube, made from our unique formula which creates a tube that loves oil. Some customers refer to the collector tube as a skimmer hose, skimmer rope, or skimmer belt. While the tube is designed to be able to withstand the most abusive industrial environments involving changes in shape, movement, temperature, and chemical interaction, it and other wear parts should be replaced periodically to maintain peak performance. 

Upon placing your order, we custom make the tube to the length required for your specific application. 

To ensure your skimmer continues to perform as designed, always order your replacement tubes directly from Oil Skimmers, Inc. To verify that your collector tube was provided by Oil Skimmers, Inc. look for this imprint:

Upon receiving your collector tube, make sure to care for it properly

 Remove the collector tube from the carton immediately and hang as shown below.

The collector tube must be hung in an untwisted condition for no less than two days before being installed on the skimmer. Failure to hang the collector tube as shown may cause the tube to twist, resulting in potential operation malfunction.
