The presented device is specifically engineered for recovering of LNAPL.
The method which allows it to “catch” floating liquids contains from the floating mechanism and a collecting tank. A special reamer makes separating of any LNAPL and water possible. It floats, thus recovering with the help of gravity.
The tank is situated under the skimmer and its main function is to catch the needed LNAPL.
The better there is a conjunction between initial density and ductility, the more effective the recovery is, and that will help to remove the floating LNAPL significantly.
The device needs to be removed and emptied by hands. 180 centimeters is the length of the skimmer, and 40.5 cm of them make up the effective skimming movement.
