Oil Skimmers Vapor Hood Prevents Harmful Materials from Escaping During Oil Skimming Process

CLEVELAND - March 2006 - The Model 6V vapor hood from Oil Skimmers Inc., the leading manufacturer of oil skimming equipment and solutions, is a reliable option when oil must be removed from areas where volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are present.

Used in such places as tanks and sumps, the Model 6V vapor hood is used in conjunction with the Model 6V oil skimmer. The vapor hood is fully enclosed with a gasket to prevent the VOCs from escaping into the atmosphere while letting the skimmer remove oil.

The vapor hood is designed so that the electric motor is protected from the skimming area and the VOCs. A built-in decanter in the vapor hood also provides water-free oil skimming. Although enclosed, the Model 6V vapor hood construction allows users to easily access the skimmer for inspection and maintenance.

In addition to being used in hostile and toxic oil skimming environments, the Model 6V vapor hood also can be applied to less hazardous areas where an enclosed skimming unit is wanted, such as a high-traffic factory or in severe weather conditions.

Vapor hoods can be manufactured to specified user height requirements and can be constructed of materials suitable for use on all types of applications. Adaptor plates also are available for direct installations on to manway openings.

"Vapor hoods provide invaluable protection from toxic materials that may cause potential health risks for users," said Bill Townsend, president of Oil Skimmers Inc.

Oil Skimmers Inc. offers long-lasting, customized oil skimming equipment and solutions for diverse manufacturing and industrial applications that require dependable, continuous removal of oil from process liquids and wastewater. With thousands of systems in operation, some for over 35 years, Oil Skimmers provides reliable, cost-saving oil skimmers with excellent customer service and support.
