December 6, 2013 – Abanaki, the world leader in oil skimming technologies, has created a new animated demo of its PetroXtractor ActiveMembrane Skimmer. This pneumatic active skimmer pump is entirely automatic with no moving parts, and is designed to recover light non aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL) from underground water at depths of up to 130 feet. This skimmer will lower energy costs, lower hydrocarbon disposal costs, effectively remove free floating hydrocarbons from groundwater, and maintain a long service life with little maintenance required.
