Abanaki Corp.’s disk-type oil skimmer, with a 1/2 × 12-inch plastic disk and 110v fan-cooled gear motor, removes unwanted tramp oils from coolants and parts washers. The company says the skim disk is twice the thickness of competing disks, making it tough against the heat that warps other manufacturers' disks. The boomerang-shape wiper blade extends over the edge of the receiving trough, providing an extra inch of wiping area and increasing the capacity of the skimmer. The company’s “no drip” wiper holder system prevents oil from dripping in unwanted places.

The disk skimmer, constructed entirely of plastic and featuring plastic motor housing and frame, offers a durable engineered polymer housing that won't corrode, capped troughs that prevent oil drips and a shaft sealed to prevent premature motor wear from oil contamination. According to the company, disk skimmers are a good choice for mounting on drums and in places where the water level does not fluctuate and small oil-removal capacity is required.
