Oil Skimming Belts

Implement an oil-attracting belt as part of the purifying water process

Belt Technologies’ decades of experience with producing high quality, PureSteel® endless stainless steel belts is a perfect fit for oil skimming belts used in oil skimming equipment.

Belt oil skimmers operate on a motor and pulley system to attract oil and other hydrocarbon liquids from the water’s surface. This is achievable using the differences in specific gravity and surface tension between oil and water. Running across the top of the liquid, the skimmer simply, and effectively, removes floating oil, for efficient surface oil extraction.

The oil attracting belt is the most critical component of this equipment to ensure the best performance for this application while achieving an optimal lifespan for the belt. Belt Technologies’ expertise with manufacturing such belts is evident in identifying the best materials to use, and most importantly, producing the required high quality, flat weld that is difficult to achieve in working with such thin materials.

Often, the oil skimming process using belts designed by Belt Technologies is so effective that it will reduce oil to an acceptable level of water purity in one step.
