Abanaki Releases New Medium Viscosity Oil Groundwater Remediation System

All Inclusive Groundwater Remediation System Effective on Removal of Lube, Motor and Hydraulic Oils

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - Abanaki Corporation is pleased to offer a Medium Viscosity Oil Groundwater Remediation System. The system fits existing monitoring or remediation wells and is extremely effective on medium weight oils such as lube, motor, and hydraulic. This is a cost-effective alternative for removing medium fuel oils from groundwater compared to pump-and-treat groundwater remediation systems.

The main component of the system is the unique PetroXtractor belt oil skimmer, with models that operate in 2", 4" or 6" diameter monitoring wells and in depths up to 100 feet or more.

Optimum removal rates are achieved using Abanaki's ultra-durable poly belt that is designed to capture floating oil as the belt passes through the surface of the water.

The oil skimmer wiper blades scrape oil from the belt and discharge it into an oil concentrator, a small gravity separator that removes any trace water from the skimmed oil. The waste oil then flows out of the concentrator into a transfer tank where a pump activated by float switches sends the oil to a customer provided waste oil vessel.

Abanaki's Medium Viscosity Oil Groundwater Remediation System is designed for long-term outdoor use and can also be used in underground vaults. In addition to the standard system, an explosion-proof configuration is available as well.
