Recover oil efficiently from calm or open water
SpillPro weir skimmers represent a significant step forward in recovering oil from water.
It's all thanks to their innovative self-adjusting design; our weir skimmers' large diameter floats increase the water line beam. Combined with a lightweight design, that means unparalleled responsiveness to wave movements.
And while conventional skimmers' float frames sit beneath the skimmer, ours sit above. That means reduced draft – making recovery faster and easier.
With ultra-high-capacity models available, recovery rates up to 300,000 litres per hour become a reality.
The result? A new generation of weir skimmer that makes large-spill-recovery simple.
Where this product can be applied
- Calm water
How this product solves problems
- Recover oil from water after large spills
- Ideal for use in calm water environments
Benefits of SpillPro weir skimmers
- Reduces deployment time
- Saves costly and time-consuming clean-ups
Save time and money
SpillPro's weir skimmers benefit from a light construction and self-adjusting technology. Compared with competitors' heavy skimmers, they are far easier to transport and deploy. Once in the water, they are quicker and more agile. That saves crucial time during the early stages of an oil spill.
High recovery rates
We offer weir skimmers capable of recovering 30,000 to 300,000 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
SpillPro weir skimmers' shallow draft and lightweight construction make them ideal for near shore and inland operations. A high buoyancy-to-weight-ratio also means they're versatile enough to operate effectively in open water.
Fold-down design with disconnecting arms makes transport and storage easy – especially for the smaller models; at just 98kg, SeaSkater can be easily carried manually.

SpillPro weir skimmers are ideal for large oil spills with a significant oil thickness on the water's surface.
The skimmer is placed into the water in the spill area. The weir skimmer then acts like a dam, pushing the oil over a wall, forcing it to collect on the other side.
Via a hydraulic power source, a screw or salvage pump then delivers recovered oil to a collection tank. This can be situated 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.
