The LMM 30 is a stiff-brush conveyor belt-type oil skimmer designed to recover oil and contaminated debris in fast flowing rivers, oil ponds, harbors or as an advancing side sweep skimmer. Surface water, oil and debris are drawn into the skimmer with a water suction propeller forcing oil to the brush system.
The brush conveyor recovers all oil types but is particularly effective on weathered oils, crude, high viscosity bunker oil, emulsions, and high concentrations of oily debris, while collecting almost no free water. Oil and oily debris are separated, lifted, and delivered into a debris basket and collection sump. This skimmer has a recovery efficiency of 95%.
The patented V-Brush belt combines high oil recovery capacity with low free water pick-up. It has an oil recovery rate of 30m³/hr. That said, capacity tests, conducted by Bureau Veritas, certified a recovery rate of 53.1m³/h.
