Oil Grabber™ Model 8
Oil Grabber Model 8 is a dependable and effective means of removing free floating oil from water and water-base solutions. In some cases, skimming by itself will reduce oil to an acceptable level of water purity. The unit can be used as a pretreatment before filtration, and in conjunction with coalescing systems
- Oil Removal: 32 gph (120 lph) with standard tail pulley. 40 gph
- Rate: (150 lph) with high capacity tail pulley. (Removal rate is based on 30 weight oil in water at ambient temperature.)
- Tail Pulley: Specify standard or high capacity. (The high capacity option uses a patented pulley design that improves the adherence of oil to the inside of the belt, thus increasing the removal rate.)
- Motor: Fractional hp, TEFC, gear motor operating on either 115/230VAC, single phase, 60Hz or 230/460 VAC, three phase, 60Hz. Optional: 50Hz power source; explosion proof; drip proof; pneumatic; and wash down duty motors.
- Belt Width: 8 in. (20 cm).
- Belt Length: User specified.
- Belt: Specify corrosion-resistant steel, carbon steel, or
- Material: specially engineered poly.
- Wiper: Nitrile (Standard); CRV (Optional) or Ceramic hybrid (Optional). Specify wiper material based on temperature and fluid compatibility.
- Weights: Drive assembly and housing with motor, without belt or tail pulley: 82 lbs. (37 kg) max. Standard tail pulley: 10 lbs. (4.5 kg). Optional high capacity tail pulley: 8 lbs. (3.6 kg) 4 ft. corrosion-resistant steel belt: 7 lbs.(3.2 kg) (belt weight varies according to actual length specified)
