sLick Oil Skimmer

sLick is Muddy River Technologies’ proprietary oil skimmer that efficiently removes floating oil while taking only minimal water. sLick can be used to clean up oil spills or recover free oil from industrial wastewater.


sLick’s perfectly weighted ring intake weir floats on either fresh water or salt water so just a small volume of oil and water flow into the collectioncup to be pumped to oil/water separation or to storage. The intake ring is supported by floats to provide a stable and buoyant platform.


Compared to oil absorbent pads, sLick is compact and unlimited capacity, sLick recovers free liquid oil as a potentially useful product rather than needing to manage soiled pads as a hazardous solid waste for disposal. sLick comes in a range of sizes, with capacity limited only by pumping rate.
