The new Abanaki Oil Boss 2.0 oil skimmer provides cost-savings by removing oil contamination, prolonging the life of the coolant. The patent-pending Oil Boss 2.0 is designed for machines requiring a higher than normal amount of tramp oil removal.  This new high-capacity unit removes and discharges the tramp oil constantly.  The Abanaki Oil Boss 2.0 operates unattended using a specially-designed discharge facilitator, automatically discharging the tramp oil as it is collected.  It eliminates the need for manual draining of the collected waste oil.

Today's Featured Product> Model 8 Oil Skimmer


Having issues reaching its discharge compliance levels? Trying to lower ppm of oil discharge? Problems removing oil and other hydrocarbons from the fracking wastewater?

Abanaki’s Stainless Steel Model 8 Oil Skimmer is designed to work in some of the harshest conditions. The Model 8 Oil Skimmer is a dependable and effective means of removing free floating oil from water and water-base solutions. In some cases, skimming by itself will reduce oil to an acceptable level of water purity. The unit can be used as a pretreatment before filtration, and in conjunction with coalescing systems.

I’ve got a 4′ x 4′ x 4.75′ sump that receives condensate waste water from two air compressors in one of our facilities. Oil is migrating from the compressors and is getting into the its condensate waste stream causing an oil sheen on the sump’s contents. Normal discharge of the sump contents is to the Storm Sewer, but due to the oil residue it is being drummed. Do you have a recommendation?


You can approach this application two ways.You can skim the surface oil from the sump as long as the skimmer has sufficient time to remove the oil, or you can skim the oil from the drums. Air compressor oil is tough oil to skim because it is so thin. It tends to mix easily with the water and does not have the viscosity to be picked up quickly. If you decide to skim from the sump, let me know how long the water is retained before it is pumped to the storm sewer. A light sheen will take some time to pick up. Also, let me know the distance from floor level to the water surface at its lowest level. Keeping in mind that these skimmers discharge by gravity, you should take into account how high off of the floor the skimmer needs to be to discharge into your disposal container.
