Cleanawater drum oil skimmers are to be deployed immediately after an oil spill occurs. They should be placed at the location of the spill and on top of the water.
Once deployed, the skimmer is connected to a pneumatic or hydraulic power source. The skimmer's drums then turn over and over again on the water's surface.
Oil sticks to the drum surface as the drums rotate, and this separates the oil from the water. As this occurs, the oil is also scraped away and drained into a collection trough.
The oil is then pumped into a collection tank which is located on the shore or on board a nearby vessel.
