TDS Crane Skimmer Systems
Foilex TDS Crane Skimmers are high performance weir skimmer for harbour and coastal oil spills specially suited for shallow waters.
The non floating TDS Crane Skimmers have a free 360° inlet and must be operated free hanging from a crane.
The onboard TDS Off-loading Pump can handle all types of oil from light diesel fuel to heavy crude oil mixed with debris.
The TDS Crane Skimmer System consists of the following products:
The heart of the TDS Crane Skimmer is the hydraulically driven onboard TDS Off-loading Pump which is fitted in the suction inlet weir with the original and since 1991 well proven flow controlled, self-adjusting skimming ring.
The TDS Crane Skimmer is powered and controlled by Foilex own range of diesel or electric driven Hydraulic Powerpacks via the hydraulic hoses.
The Hose Package consists of hydraulic and discharge hoses stored on Foilex specially designed Hose Reels for easy transport and handling.
Recovered oil is pumped from the Skimmer up to the available collecting tank through the discharge hose. The hoses are kept together and floating with inflatable floats.
