• Passive skimmers for fuel removal The KV Passive Skimmers utilize a patented membrane material to separate fuel from water. Subsurface fuel spills are recovered by membrane separation so the fuel simply falls into the passive "bailer" reservoir. These fuel bailers easily recover LNAPL such as petrol and diesel from groundwater. The KV skimmers have many advantages that optimize hydrocarbon removal such as:
    • Removal of floating hydrocarbon using advanced membrane technology
    • Require no power, no moving parts
    • The skimmer floats when empty so it is ready to fill
    • Excellent for contaminant drawdown calculations
    • Minimal to no maintenance required
    • Recovers to a sheen
    • Comes with 2.7m of stainless steel hanger cable attached
    • Suitable for 50mm or 100mm diameter wells (see dimensions below)
  • LNAPL Skimming Socks for 50mm Monitoring Wells The easiest way to remove small amounts of fuels from monitoring wells is with these low-cost skimming socks. Each sock holds about 500ml.
    • 40mm diameter by 500mm length
    • Hydrophobic material absorbs fuels and repels water
    • Low Cost
    • Has a loop, you can use to attach to a rope or bailer cord for easy deployment
