2023 MSRC Annual Report

Lori Bow Collect Skimmer

This type of skimmer uses oleophilic bristles on a brush to recover oil from the water's surface. It is capable of handling many types of oil from light diesel fuel to heavy crude oil. Oil adheres to the brushes and is "combed" from the bristles into a sump. It is typically deployed in open, near coastal or near-shore waters.
