SSV/5 MAXI-SKIMMERS - Large Variable Speed Oil Skimmer

Our Model SSV/5 MAXI-SKIMMERS are for applications that require up to 20 gallons of oil collection per hour! It comes with a variable speed control, great for skimming applications where the collection rate varies frequently! More affordable than competitors with high collection rates and rugged enough to handle the toughest environments, SSV/5 is the perfect solution for your monitoring wells, central coolant systems, or wastewater treatment tanks!

SSV/5 Maxi-Skimmers are large oil skimmers made of stainless steel and lightweight polymers, so they are lightweight (only 7 lbs without belt), corrosion-proof, portable, and able to thrive in harsh or caustic environments!

Model SSV/5 comes with the same durable motor you can always expect on a Maxi-Skimmer, a stainless steel tail pulley, and a UHMW bearing-grade scraper to minimize wear on the belt, and a 3’ discharge hose!
