- Calm waters
How this product solves problems
- Skims oil from water following spills
- Easier to deploy than traditional heavy skimmers
- More efficient than traditional skimmers
Benefits of SpillPro drum skimmers
- Reduces deployment time
- Saves costly and time-consuming clean-ups
- Highly efficient
Rapid response time
SpillPro drum skimmers are made from light weight aluminium. It makes them far easier to transport and deploy compared with competitors' old technology skimmers that are very heavy and difficult to deploy. That saves crucial time during the early stages of an oil spill.
High recovery rates
We offer drum skimmers capable of recovering 5,000 to 180,000 litres per hour. And those numbers are proven by independent tests. So we can provide the ideal size skimmer for any spill. Our end-to-end support ensures you'll get outstanding results from your recovery effort.
Versatile and efficient
Capable of handling light and heavy oils, SpillPro drum skimmers lead the market in efficient recovery. Typically, they recover 97% oil and only 3% water. Their impressive efficiency is matched by their remarkable versatility, operating effectively in little as 75mm of water.
Durable, long life
Simple construction. Light anodised frame. High-density polyethylene drums. That all adds up to a durable skimmer built to withstand impact and abrasion.

When an oil spill occurs, SpillPro drum skimmers are deployed into the spill area, resting on the water's surface.
The skimmer is connected to a hydraulic or pneumatic power source, which turns the skimmer's drums over the water surface. As the floating drums rotate, oil sticks to the drum surface, separating it from the water. The oil is simultaneously scraped from the drum surface and drained into the collection trough.
The power source then pumps the oil to a collection tank on shore or on a vessel.

Oil spill skimmers are often rated based on the offload pump capacity but this is misleading. Independent bodies can verify rate of oil removal and efficiency. Read more.
