Thank you for purchasing this oil skimmer. Skim Portable is a quality
product made in electro polished stainless steel.
Unpack the oil skimmer and check the parts according to the following list:
1 Oil Skimmer
1 Battery charger
1 Heavy weight roll
1 band (length as ordered)
Before use charge the battery for at least 16 hours.
To get the best life out of the battery pack check the following guidelines:
Only recharge the battery when the Oil Skimmer has decreased
speed to almost stopping.
Do not let the Oil Skimmer run until the battery is completely
exhausted or allow the battery to discharge fully when not in use.
Always fully recharge the battery i.e. for approximately 16 hours.
Failure to observe this procedure will shorten the life of the battery.
Observe these simple steps and your battery-pack will last for many years
(approximately 1000 recharge cycles).
Using the Oil Skimmer.
When the battery is fully charged, place the band around the pulling roller
with the weight in the bottom of the band and ensure that the Oil Skimmer
runs in a clockwise Direction with the join in the band running gently over
the oil scraper without catching.
(Like the drawing on the right)
Put the unit in a convenient position on the sump to allow the skimming
band to break the surface of the fluid. Press the on/off switch on the top of
the unit and the oil removing process will begin. The tramp oil removed from
the sump will funnel into the Oil Skimmer reservoir in the base of the unit,
which should be emptied regularly.
Simply unclip the two snap locks on the side of the reservoir and remove the motor box (the top). Empty into a
suitable receptacle, replace on to the Skimmer and you are ready to continue.
Check the band every 6 months and replace if there are any holes or if it worn out. See the spare parts list for the
correct part number.
Apart from changing the band, the Oil Skimmer will not need additional maintenance and will give many years
trouble free operation.
Spare parts can be obtained from your supplier.
