Product Information

This DESMI belt skimmer is excellent at recovering highly viscous oils with a low water content. Supplied as standard with a DOP-250 dual pump, this powerful skimmer is able to operate in either direction (depending on the oil type) to quickly remove oil from the water surface. It can be offered as an independent skimmer, or as an adaptor for the Terminator skimmer.

The belt skimmer, combined with the powerful capabilities of the pump, can also be enhanced with the annular water injection system that greatly reduces the pressure loss in the discharge hose. The water injection flange can be mounted on the inlet or outlet of the pump, with hot or cold water injection.

This DESMI belt skimmer can also be supplied with options such as remote control and thrusters if required.

  • Enhanced recovery of heavy oils
  • Belt attaches onto the Terminator skimmer or supplied as complete system
  • Water injection system available for reducing back-pressure in discharge hose
  • Thrusters are available for remote positioning
  • Remote control options
