Discoil works by exploiting the physical principle by which oil adheres to metallic surfaces.
The stainless steel discs that characterize the machine are vertically positioned and partially submerged in water. They attract the hydrocarbons to be recovered during rotation.
The “scrapers” are self-centering, resistant to various types of products and able to automatically compensate for wear. It is able to operate in the extreme situations, including the ATEX Zone 0.
DISCOIL machine is supported and operated on a metallic structure generally attached to the side tank walls and equipped with catwalk and service platforms to permit maintenance.
Installation with variable level water
A floating platform can be anchored by mooring cables or attached to the tank with vertically sliding guides. A vertically sliding system normally adopted in tanks can be used where, for space reasons, floats cannot be used, or in deep tanks or chambers where maintenance personnel access is discouraged.
