The heart of the TDS Skimmer is the hydraulically driven onboard TDS Skimmer Pump which is fitted in a 3-pontoon flotation frame with the original and since 1991 well proven flow controlled, self-adjusting skimming ring.
The TDS Skimmer is powered and controlled by Foilex own range of diesel or electric driven Hydraulic Powerpacks via the hydraulic hoses.
The Hose Package consists of hydraulic and discharge hoses stored on Foilex specially designed Hose Reels for easy transport and handling.
Recovered oil is pumped from the Skimmer up to the available collecting tank through the discharge hose. The hoses are kept together and floating with inflatable floats.
