The Fasflo is a free floating skimmer for the recovery of oil in open, fast flowing water such as rivers, estuaries and offshore sweep systems. It is a cost effective solution with minimal ongoing maintenance suited to many applications and can be used with boom attachments or boom array, as a side sweep, in a large V shape boom configuration, with a hydrovane or fixed in a river.

The skimmer is preassembled ready to go complete with GRP or Aluminium floats (model dependant). It is lightweight and the angle of Hydrofoils supporting the skimmer can be adjusted to suit the speed of water. It is an efficient skimmer which collects a high oil to water ratio when skimming.

There are two sizes available. Mini Fasflo comes complete with a boom array to funnel the oil and a separate recovered oil transfer pump. Maxi Fasflo has a boom array as an option and comes with an on-board pump.

It has a self-adjusting weir lip to optimise the oil collection rate. This, together with the simplicity of the system, ensures minimal maintenance and spare part requirements.
