Lamor Bow Collector (LBC)

The LBC is a stiff brush conveyor belt unit which effectively recovers oil and debris. The LBC operates most effectively at vessel speeds of up to four knots. Forward motion of the vessel concentrates surface oil and oily debris into the brush conveyor for separation and recovery.
The LBC collects oils of all types and viscosities and can operate in choppy sea conditions without disrupted performance and its brush conveyor automatically separates and recovers oils, emulsions and oily debris from the water and delivers it to deck level. Recovered oil contains less than 5% free water.
The brush can be either brush chain or brush belt. The number of brushes varies from 2–6. Also length of brush conveyor varies pending the desired capacity and the size of the vessel. The skimmer module is hydraulically powered and off-loaded by a suction pump, Archimedes screw pump, a centrifugal pump or as direct flow into a basin/tank. The system can be supplied with portable power packs and can also be operated using vessel hydraulics. The skimmer has a tilt cylinder for changing between storage and operational positions.
The technical specifications vary on the size of the LBC and vessel.
