The Oil Viper Tube Skimmer preys on free-floating surface oils found in wastewater and removes them by means of an oil-attracting, ¾-inch-diameter, continuous looped tube. The unit's clean-wipe design delivers a virtually oil-free tube when it leaves the skimmer. The unit extends out over the surface of the tank or pit to collect free-floating oils and utilizes a floating tube making it highly effective in both shallow and deep applications. The safety shutoff stops the motor as well as the tube when the cover is opened.The compact unit features a wiper combination prefitted to the tube itself. Removal rates can be as high as 100 gallons per hour.
