This is a complete groundwater remediation equipment package designed to remove high viscosity oils such as heating fuel, weathered diesel, and fuel oil No. 6 from groundwater using monitoring or remediation wells.
The oil skimming equipment does not use a groundwater pump or torpedo pump and is therefore not subject to their associated problems. Rather, it uses the innovative Abanaki PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer fitted with the ultra-durable poly belt plus stabilizer rods. The wells can be 2" in diameter or greater.
The oil skimming system deposits the skimmed oil into an Oil Concentrator to be sure that the remediated oil is virtually water free. Next the oil is moved via gravity into a transfer tank where it is automatically pumped to a customer provided skimmed oil collection container.
The Abanaki Heavy Oil Groundwater Remediation System can be configured with standard or explosion-proof electrical components. This system can fit in most standard underground vaults and, of course, it can be located above ground as well.
Skimming belts made of oil attracting material are effective for groundwater remediation of heavy oils such as weathered diesel, and heating oil such as fuel oil No. 6.
