Skimmer Enclosure Contains Vapors

Skimmer Enclosure Contains Vapors

The Model 6V vapor hood is designed so that the electric motor that drives the skimmer is protected from the skimming area, while the gasketed enclosure prevents volatile organic compounds from escaping into the atmosphere. A built-in decanter provides water-free oil skimming, and there is access through the hood for inspection and maintenance of the skimmer unit. The vapor hood, manufactured by Oil Skimmers, Inc. (, is used in conjunction with the company's Model 6V oil skimmer in tanks and sumps both in hostile and toxic oil skimming environments, and in less hazardous areas where an enclosed skimming unit is wanted, such as a high-traffic factory or in severe weather conditions.
