Markleen announces the new and revolutionary MultiSkimmer MS 50 with a debris tray, launched on the Norwegian coast. Operations with this skimmer are so far proving highly successful.
Working in polluted areas with debris always represents a big challenge for standard skimmers as pumps tend to become jammed by floating solids. With this in mind, and in response to its customers' requirements, Markleen has designed this special and unique hydraulic tray system, which allows the skimmer to keep on working even in the most contaminated areas.
The Markleen MultiSkimmer MS 50 is a robust, compact skimmer used for recovering all types of oil. Diesel oil, grease and emulsions are quickly and efficiently recovered with a minimum of water content. All components used in the skimmer unit are robust and water and oil resistant. The Markleen MultiSkimmer MS 50 features a mechanical debris collection tray made of aluminium, which collects small floating solids from the water.
The Markleen Multiskimmer MS 50 features a German-manufactured Vogelsang rotary lobe pump, which is suitable for use with high viscosity oils. The skimmer is also equipped with hydraulic thrusters which enable it to be manoeuvered into the oil. The skimmer cartridge and pump can be removed without the use of tools for use in other applications and for maintenance and cleaning.
The Markleen Multiskimmer MS50 offers the advantages of being three skimmers in one, covering a wide range of viscosities, recovering oil with a low water content and being easy to transport. The MS 50 with a debris tray is one of the best solutions for efficient oil spill response in coastal and offshore waters.
