Oil Skimmer Separator Hybrids

100% Oil Removal
100% Oil/Water Separation
100% Oil Recovery

What is SurfCleaner?

The SurfCleaner technology is based on the gravimetric oil/water separation, collecting both the carrier fluid and the top layer substance, allowing 100% separation of the top layer substance and an oily water treatment capacity from 1,000 up to 8,000 liters/h. 

The SurfCleaner Skimmer Separator Hybrids work without hydraulics, pneumatics, powerpack or pump, and are easy to install, run and maintain. They allow to recover 100% of the oil – with a water content of less than 0.5%. 

SurfCleaner vs Traditional Oil Skimmers

Unlike the majority of conventional oil skimmers – floating oil skimmer, weir skimmer, drum skimmer, disc skimmer or belt skimmer – SurfCleaner solutions are capable of removing thin oil sheens, petrol and diesel, working fully automatically and continuously.

Many oil refinery plants use SurfCleaner Skimmer Separator Hybrids in an API separator. More than 30 SurfCleaners have been in operation for 10+ years in the oil water separation segment. Among our customers are oil refineries, coast guards, industrial ports in the Nordics and in Europe: Preem Refinery, Esso Refinery, Exxon Mobil, Swedish Coast Guard, The Port of Stockholm, and Midroc.

Our Products

SurfCleaner for industrial oil water treatment and oil spill cleanup comes in two sizes – for different capacity and handling needs.

SCO8000-square
SurfCleaner SCO 8000
  • The SCO 8000 is a proven Skimmer Separator Hybrid for industrial oil applications. Most refineries have installed the SCO 8000 in API separators, where it will run automatically and continuously, reducing VOC emissions, minimize the operational costs and recovering up to 8,000 pure oil per hour.
SCO1000-kombo-square
SurfCleaner SCO 1000
  • The SCO 1000 is a smaller oil water separator model, built for lower-flow continuous separation of oil from water in oil and petroleum refineries, oil depots, ports, and industrial facilities. The low weight and foldable construction makes it suitable for oil spill response measures in seas, lakes, rivers, and oil caverns.

  • Automatic removal and separation of oil from wastewater with 100% oil separation capability

  • Recovers 100% of the oil with a water content of < 0.5%

  • SCO 1000-ATEX is certified for Zone 0.

  • Capacity to collect and separate 8,000 liters of oil per hour

  • Continuous, automatic operation 24/7, over long periods of time, with minimal maintenance needs​

How the SurfCleaner works?

SurfCleaner SCO 1000 is a smaller oil water separator model, built for lower-flow continuous separation of oil from water in oil and petroleum refineries, oil depots, ports, and industrial facilities. The low weight and foldable construction makes it suitable for oil spill response measures in seas, lakes, rivers, and oil caverns.

Our portable surface oil skimmer can be powered on-grid, from a regular power outlet, or off-grid by optional solar panels. It is controlled remotely by an easy-to-use smartphone app. With these features, the SCO 1000 is a very versatile solution for a wide range of applications in oil spill cleanup and oil refinery wastewater treatment.

Why customers choose SurfCleaner?

Port of Stockholm

“SurfCleaner has made our daily work easier, and the results are below the environmental requirement of 3 ppm hydrocarbons in the cleaned water.”

Midroc

“We were asked to test SurfCleaner and run it until it broke down. It has hasn't broken down since 2004 and we have recovered our investment more than 20 times over.”

Preemraff

“We found that SurfCleaner improved both separation and cleaning efficiency in the gravimetric separator. Since the start it has been operating continuously.”
