“The coolant recycling system we have from SmartSkim plays a major part in our operation. Their skim filter systems are truly the best I have seen, and I would recommend their product to anyone in the machining industry.”

Our Suction Skimmers are designed as a simple, trouble-free solutions for removing free floating and mechanically dispersed tramp oils. The skimmers work in any application where skimming oil off of the top surface of a fluid is required. Applications include but are not limited to wash tanks, individual machine sumps, central coolant systems, machine pits, and wastewater treatment tanks.
Our suction skimmers change position as fluid levels in your tank rise and fall, assuring you of consistent and continuous surface skimming.
Our multi-patented SmartSkim® Suction Skimmer is mounted in your process tank and continuously removes the topmost oily layer. Skimmed oily fluids are typically pumped through an oil water separator where floating contaminants are separated.
Simply connect the SmartSkim® Suction Skimmer to the suction side of a transfer pump and you’re skimming. We recommend low shear pumps for this service such as air operated diaphragm (AOD) pumps or progressive cavity pumps. Connection kits are available to aide in the installation of skimmers to pumps.
