The OARS Passive Skimmer is designed to absorb and encapsulate hydrocarbons by floating directly on the water in stormwater catch basins, sumps, and oil/water separators. As oil-polluted water flows into the basin, the skimmers contain a proprietary blend of co-polymers, called the Smart Sponge, packaged in flexible mesh containers that are available in a variety of sizes. The non-leaching Smart Sponge is chemically selective to hydrocarbons and able to transform liquid petroleum hydrocarbons into a manageable solid waste. OARS Passive Skimmers also remove oil sheen.
The uniquely designed skimmer allows stormwater to flow through the skimmer for extended periods without the sediment-clogging problems associated with typical stormwater filters. As debris and larger objects flow into the catch basin, the skimmer folds downward from the weight. This self-clearing action allows the skimmer to return to its original position for continued hydrocarbon absorption.
