Geotech SpOILer Spotlight

Active skimming systems for recovering hydrocarbon product.

The SpOILer is a pneumatically operated recovery system. The "controllerless" internally regulated bladder pump cycles automatically when air is applied. The floating skimmer attachment confidently tracks water table fluctuations in excess of 24" (61cm) with the 4" (100cm) skimmer to recover floating hydrocarbons to a sheen.

The system includes 100 (30m) feet of both air and product discharge tubing, and a well cap to suspend the pump and skimmer for fast and easy installation. Optional pneumatically operated Tankfull Shut-Off (TFSO) systems are also available. Simply route the air supply line through the TFSO installed on your recovery tank, and the air supply to the pump will be interrupted when the tank is full.

"I have had the opportunity to see various types and models of skimming systems in operation and believe that your SpOILer Systems represent the best in design, materials and craftsmanship, as well as ease of installation and use at a very reasonable cost. We are again very pleased w/Geotech's recommendation of this system, and for the same day shipment response".

If you have a site where gasoline, diesel, fuel oil or even gear oil must be recovered and the well diameter is 2" (5cm) or larger, the Geotech SpOILer may be the right solution for you! Read more!
