    Oil Skimming

    I have been asked to install a chiller to cool some process water. The water has oil in it from cooling a weld joint on steel. I was also asked to provide an oil skimmer to clean the oil from the water. Does any one have experience here or know someone who does? I need to provide a magnetic particulate or a floating type skimmer.

    Thanks!

    You could check into centrifuges. Or lufa sponges.
