The portable Tote-It removes oil from water in any application where 115V AC, 60Hz power is available.

The Tote-It utilises a continuous belt and wiper to remove up to 12 gallons (52.86 litres) of oil per hour from the fluid surface.

The belt operates on a motor and pulley system attached to a stabiliser bar that is immersed in the contaminated liquid.

After travelling over the head pulley, the belt passes through tandem wiper blades, where oil is scraped off both sides of the belt and discharged through a 1-1/4in ID hose.

The tail pulley has flanges that allow it to roll freely on the inside of the belt without becoming dislodged.

It does not need to be fastened to the tank.

Oil skimming makes use of the differences in specific gravity and surface tension between oil and water.

These physical characteristics allow the belt to attract oil and other hydrocarbon liquids from the surface of the fluid.

The Tote-It is especially suited for parts washing and machining-centre applications.

By removing surface oil from a wash tank, the parts will not be recontaminated as they are withdrawn.

Removing tramp oil from a coolant tank prevents excessive smoke and fumes caused by oil burning during cutting operations.

It also reduces bacteria growth in the tank and the resulting odour.

The Tote-It prevents plugging of spray heads and filters.

It reduces fluid-disposal costs and helps meet government requirements for water discharge.

Skimmed oil can be recycled and reused as a lubricant or fuel.

The Tote-It is available in 2in (50.8mm) or 4in belt widths and weighs only 36lb (16.33kg).

Among the advantages of the Tote-It are: effectiveness in turbulent fluids; it can be used in tanks that are only inches deep; it requires no tank modifications in most applications; it maintains skimming efficiency in fluctuating fluid levels; it can be easily mounted and quickly cleaned with minimal maintenance; and a rugged construction that withstands harsh conditions.

The Tote-It has been designed to last for many years.

Belts are specifically selected for individual applications.

A tough power-train keeps the Tote-It running under the most severe conditions.

With the proper configuration, the Tote-It can handle liquid temperatures up to 212F (100C) and the pH of the fluid can range from three to 13.

The Tote-It is designed for applications where multiple tanks can take advantage of a single portable unit.

It can also be used in permanent installations with limited access areas, such as small parts washers and machining-centre coolant tanks.

Typical applications include: wastewater sumps, parts washers, coolant systems, heat-treating fluids, food-processing plants, parking lots, garages and service facilities; aircraft service areas and tarmac runoff; and truck, locomotive and other mobile-equipment washing facilities.
