Oil rehabilitation, Vienna

The project:


Rehabilitation of an old oil refinery which was destroyed in World War II.


Executing companies:

Consortium Altlast Mobil

G. Hinteregger & Söhne Baugesellschaft m.b.H.


The problem:


Floating oil on the surface of ponds must be sucked off.


Our solution:


Application of a submersible scum skimmer Type 4-FSP which due to its design generates a continuous suction flow.

By means of the adjustable floats suction depth can easily be adjusted (Fig. above). The Tsurumi scum skimmer takes the medium in only from the surface through a special suction inlet (Figure on right).

In the event of abrasive and corrosive utilization, stronger wear and tear will take place naturally in certain components. With regards to the above application wear and tear can take place mainly in impeller, agitator, suction plate, shaft sleeve, oil ring, mechanical seal, pump casing, strainer, motor casing and discharge coupling. Depending on the working conditions the lifetime of those parts might vary significantly and can be shorter than the legal warranty period.
In this regard, please pay attention to our general terms and conditions that we also send to you by mail on request.
