Your ARBO oil-skimmer does the dirty job!

  • Light weight
  • Easy to move around
  • Low maintenance
  • Controllable cost


The model LI-80 oil skimmer is a well- established and easy to install device for reducing pollution whilst at the same time recovering valuable materials, oils and fats from the surface of water and other liquids.

As all “wetted” parts are made of plastic, the use of this skimmer is not restricted to water only. Also alkaline liquids or acids can be treated successfully. Floating oil adheres to an endless moving belt and is lifted vertically on the belt and skimmed of by a wiper tube for discharge to suitable storage vessels.

As the belt is only 80 mm. wide, the unit  takes little space. The skimmer can therefore be mounted permanently on the bath and can clean continuously, also during production hours.

The belt is kept under tension by a free running drum without bearings. As there are no mechanical parts in the liquid, breakdowns due to filthiness are quite impossible.


1. Always the optimum variable speed

2. Fully encapsulated maintenance free motor drive.

3. Oil exit 

4. Suitable for tanks with fluctuating levels: belt length from 200- 3000mm

5. No mechanical parts in the liquid zone
