Retro-B Series Belt Skimmer
Belt oil skimmers are great for lifting floating tramp oils large distances (from 8 inches to 10 feet) or where access is restricted. Our cogged plastic timing belts are virtually indestructible, and will not stretch or slip over time, like others. Our standard design has a fixed lower pulley for retaining the belt. Standard units remove about 1 quart of floating oil per hour to minimize coolant drag out. Other features and speeds are available, such as steel belts, or 30 rpm motors. Belt-type oil skimmers also come with 24-hour timers.
Cogged Polyurethane offers a "no-slip" advantage. The "cogs" match the drive pulley cogs. This is especially useful in 2" diameter wells. Available in 1" and 2" widths. A separator is provided to prevent the cogs from meshing in the well casing.
Flat Polyurethane belts are less expensive and are better suited for larger wells (6" up diameter). They can stretch up to about 10% over time. Positive drive is obtained by sufficient tail pulley weight. They come in 1", 2", 3" and 4" widths.
Stainless Steel belts are used when the fluids are not appropriate for polyurethane (high-low ph). These are available in 1", 2.25" and 4" widths.
