“SurfCleaner has made our daily work easier. The solution performs so well that the results are below the environmental requirement of 3 ppm hydrocarbons in the cleaned water.”
Niklas Lundqvist, Energy Port Manager
“We were asked to test SurfCleaner to find out what it could handle – and run it until it broke down. It has worked perfectly since 2004 and we have recovered our investment more than 20 times over.”
Erik Bäcklund, CEO
“We found that SurfCleaner improved both separation and cleaning efficiency in the gravimetric separator. Since the start it has been operating continuously.”

The 100% Surface Separator Solution
Conventional solutions are often manual, inefficient and expensive
Oil spills in ports and oceans from accidents and other causes are a major pollution threat. Today, a variety of solutions, such as skimmers, barriers, chemicals, absorbants, and burning are used to collect and/or remove the oil with varying degrees of efficiency. The majority of solutions do not have the capability to remove oil sheens, petrol and diesel and these are often left to evaporate into the air.
SurfCleaner – a well-proven, energy efficient solution
Automated and highly effective, SurfCleaner represents a solid contribution towards managing the global water surface pollution problem. It is a well-proven, energy efficient surface separator that removes and separates pollutants from water surfaces. Easy to install, run and maintain, SurfCleaner will separate oil, petrol or diesel from the water surface at the location of the spill. The extent of the spill determines how many SurfCleaner units are required.
100% removal, separation, and recovery of 8,000 liters of oil per hour
The SurfCleaner technology is based on gravimetric separation, collecting both the carrier fluid and the top layer substance – allowing up to 100% separation of the top layer substance, and a separation capacity of 8,000 liters/h. Most of our customers have installed the SurfCleaner in an API pond, or basin, claiming that SurfCleaner is far more efficient and cost effective than other weir skimmers and separators.
Advanced yet simple
SurfCleaner is advanced yet ingeniously simple. The patented collection and separation process has been developed into a self-managing solution consisting of only two moving parts. The separated oil is discharged to an external storage tank. Disposal costs are mimimized since the oil is up to 100% pure and recyclable.
SurfCleaner has been developed through years of extensive research in close co-operation with customers. In addition to its impressive performance capabilities, it is durable and easily maintained.
