ORS Small Diameter Scavengers

…electric dual pump
hydrocarbon recovery systems


These highly efficient automated pumping systems can separate and recover free phase hydrocarbons from groundwater at up to .5 gpm. With optional water table depression pumps, you can “do it all” downwell as deep as 100 feet! The water pump creates a “cone of depression” in the well, drawing in the hydrocarbons contaminating the surrounding groundwater. The product pump then recovers the hydrocarbons floating on the water and automatically pumps them into a product recovery tank at the surface. When the tank fills, a tankfull sensor shuts down the pump to prevent overflow. Control panels like the Geotech Environmental Control Module are available for water pump operation.

ORS Scavengers are cost-effective systems for removing free phase hydrocarbons from ground water. There is no need for above ground oil/water separators or air compressors with dryers, filters, etc. Scavengers are designed to fit in wells as small as 4" in diameter, saving on drilling costs as well.

ORS Small Diameter Probe Scavenger System

The ORS Small Diameter Probe Scavenger™ system uses a specially designed sensor probe that differentiates between free phase hydrocarbon and water. This ensures that only water-free hydrocarbon is pumped to the surface.

Virtually 100% water-free oil is retrieved. The larger ORS High Volume Probe Scavenger™ is available for up to 20 gpm recovery rates.

ORS Small Diameter Filter Scavenger System

The ORS Small Diameter Filter Scavenger™ system uses a unique intake cartridge to separate and retrieve a wide range of floating hydrocarbons from water. The cartridge consists of a float with a specially treated oleophilic/hydrophobic mesh screen. This screen allows hydrocarbons to pass into a reservoir, but repels water. Two sensors inside the hydrocarbon reservoir prevents the pumping of water. An external water sensor, in conjunction with the cartridge position, controls operation of the water pump, thereby regulating water level in the well. Small Diameter Filter Scavengers can recover floating hydrocarbons down to a sheen!


We are sure that after you add up all the costs involved in removing hydrocarbons from groundwater you will see that the ORS Small Diameter Scavengers, Probe or Filter versions, deserve serious consideration.
