Crust Lance Skimmer

In some industrial applications such as refineries and petrochemical plants there are often tanks, waste pits, separators and interceptors that have been left with wastewater contaminated with hydrocarbons in them and this can lead to a crust being formed on the surface.
Our Crust Lance system allows operators to safely remove the crust and transport for disposal or reprocessing. It comprises a floating suction head and an electric driven
transfer pump. Both the floating suction head and transfer pump are certified for use in hazardous areas.
