Oil Grabber™ Model 4
The Abanaki Model 4 Oil Grabber is a dependable and effective means of removing oil from water and water-based solutions. Often, skimming by itself will reduce oil to an acceptable level of water purity. Depending on the characteristics of the liquid, it is possible for the Model 4 alone to reduce oil content to less than five parts per million in water. The unit can be used as a pretreatment before filtration, and in conjunction with coalescing systems.
- Oil Removal: 16 gph (60 lph) with standard tail pulley
- Rate: 20 gph (75 lph) with high capacity tail pulley (Removal rate is based on 30 weight oil in water.)
- Tail Pulley: Specify standard or high capacity. (The high capacity option uses a patented pulley design that improves the adherence of oil to the inside of the belt, thus increasing the removal rate.)
- Motor: Fractional HP, TEFC, motor operating on either 115/230VAC, single phase, 60Hz or 230/460 VAC, three phase, 60Hz. Optional: 50Hz power source; explosion proof; drip proof; pneumatic; and wash down duty motors.
- Belt Width: 4 in. (10 cm)
- Belt Length: User specified.
- Belt: Specify corrosion-resistant steel, elastomer, a Material specially engineered poly, or Fuzzy®.
- Wiper: Nitrile (Standard); CRV (Optional), Ceramic or Ceramic hybrid (Optional). Specify wiper material based on temperature and fluid compatibility. (See “Operating Limits.”) Mounting Standard: Bracket for customer-supplied steel Method channel, with oil discharge through the channel, or flat surface mount with oil discharge through a 11⁄2 in. (3.75 cm) NPT male pipe fitting.
- Weights: Drive assembly and housing with motor, without belt or tail pulley: 71 lbs. (32 kg) max. Standard or high capacity tail pulley: 8 lbs. (3.6 kg) 4 ft. corrosion-resistant steel belt: 4 lbs.(1.8 kg) (belt weight varies according to actual length specified)
