Floating Skimmers

Sentry SmartSkim floating skimmers are efficient and durable devices that remove free-floating and mechanically dispersed contaminants from industrial process fluids. Each of Sentry’s floating skimmers is designed to meet the specific needs of your industrial applications.

Our oil skimming manufacturers and engineers have developed these oil water skimmers to adjust position based on the fluid levels in your tank, bath, or pit. Each product can also be manually set to the exact depth of your skim to accommodate aggressive surface skimming or foam layer removal. Each design is mounted in the process tank or on the edge of the tank to maximize its effectiveness. Connection kits are also available to aid in installation.

Sentry SmartSkim floating skimmers are constructed to be long-lasting and low maintenance with stainless steel construction and reduced additions. Hoses, belts, disks, and drums are not a part of the design to avoid unnecessary repairs and clogs.

Each product within this category is designed to meet your specific oil skimming application. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our team.
