Komara 15 Duplex

The KomaraTM 15 skimmer system is a highly portable oil recovery system, which has been designed to recover a wide range of oil types. The system includes a multi-head skimmer with interchangeable disc and brush cartridges, floating transfer pump, powerpack and associated hoses and floats.

Due to its compact size, the KomaraTM 15 system can be used in most inland and shoreline areas including ports and harbours, waste oil pits, beach operations, inland waterways, ponds, lakes, marshes, mangroves and any similar environment where oils are required to be removed from water.

Features and benefits

  • The Komara 15 will operate as a disc skimmer or a brush skimmer, allowing the operator to select the most efficient recovery mode.
  • The skimmer has two banks of discs/brushes, providing a large inlet area for oil to be captured.
  • The skimmer can be converted from discs to brush (and vice versa) in less than two minutes without the need for special tools.
  • The skimmer discs operate smoothly even at low speeds, giving more than 98% oil pick-up, which effectively eliminates the need for costly separation or disposal of dirty water.
  • The disc scrapers are manufactured from a specially designed flexible polymer, which precisely follows the contour of the disc and ensures that even the lightest of oils are recovered with high efficiency.
  • The brush mode is effective for heavy oils and achieves high recovery rates with low water pick-up.
  • The pump rating is 15m3/hr and the system oil recovery rate is 14m3/hr.
  • The diesel powerpack is extremely efficient and incorporates important safety features to ensure it is safe in an oil spill situation.
  • All components have been built with durable, lightweight materials, making it a very compact system.
  • The KomaraTM 15 system has been used successfully around the globe and has been proven to require minimal maintenance.
