Minimax 12

The Minimax 12 is a light, portable oleophilic brush skimmer, designed to recover oil from shorelines, harbors, rivers and lakes. The skimmer has proven its efficiency in continuous recovery operations in hundreds of oil spills worldwide, in all climatic conditions and varying types of spilled oils.

The Minimax 12 utilizes the well proven Lamor brush wheel system, which combines high oil recovery capacity with a low free water pick-up rate of less than 5 %. The brush wheels recover any floating oils which remain fluid.
