Elastec X-30 Grooved Disc Bow Skimmer

DBRC has (1) one Elastec bow mounted skimming system. The oil skimming unit is mounted on DBRC’s 32 foot Schat – Rascal. The X-30 skimming system utilizes the latest Grooved Discs for recovering oil from the surface of the water. These discs are the same technology that was utilized in the Wendy Schmidt oil cleanup X challenge. The X30 Grooved Disc Cassette will collect light oils in the stationery and advancing modes from the bow of the vessel. This unit has an approximate skimming width of 16 ft. in the advancing mode. Portable tanks provide storage for this unit. The unit is stored on a trailer at Linwood.
