DESMI designs and manufactures an extensive range of systems to recover oil and chemicals from the marine and inland environment including industrial applications. The products include skimmers, booms, storage tanks, power packs, pumps, dispersant systems, vessels and ancillary items. DESMI features an extensive range of containment booms and oil skimmers within their full oil spill response product portfolio. The oil spill response solutions from DESMI are trusted in the industry. Wheather the requirement is for the offshore or the shoreline area; the arctic or equatorial environment, DESMI delivers proven solutions for all spill conditions and offers outstanding life-cycle costs.
DESMI Helix Skimmer
DESMI has overcome the challenges presented of circular design by engineering a unique brush drive train and combing mechanisms. DESMI has recognised for some time that circular skimmers have considerable operational advantages over square or rectangular units – namely that the oil is able to flow freely onto the brushes from any angle, which is especially important with heavy and thick oils that do not flow well.
DESMI Alligator Skimmer
The Alligator is a versatile skimmer that has the ability to recover a wide range of oils not normally associated with oleophilic skimmers – from light to very viscous oil. The brush belt pulls the oil into the unit where it is elevated and recovered at the back of the skimmer with a unique double comb arrangement.
DESMI Ro-Boom Oil Containment Boom
The Ro-Boom oil containment boom is manufactured in heavy duty neoprene rubber. The unique construction ensures complete cross vulcanisation of the composite materials resulting in a finished product with high abrasion resistance, peel resistance and tensile strength. The Ro-Boom lies completely flat when deflated allowing easy cleaning, storage, recovery and maintenance. Individual air chambers provide high integrity – even if one air chamber is deflated the freeboard is maintained by adjacent air chambers.
The Scantrawl is a unique system for the recovery of floating tar balls, fuel oils, oil contaminated debris, residual tar after oil burns and bitumen residues from Orimulsion spills. The Scantrawl is able to filter the water, trapping the heavy oils in a trawl net equipped with a heavy-duty cover tube.
