Oil companies continue to reap the benefits as Aqua-Guard’s industrial RBS TRITON™ skimming systems recover valuable lost products

Industrial waste water found in the internal collection sewers and basins of oil refineries contain valuable petroleum bi-products and raw crude oil. Aqua-Guard Spill Response Inc. has developed an attractive solution for its customers to recover these products and return them into their refining process. Besides the financial return, there is a positive benefit to the environment by reducing the amount of hydrocarbons in their effluent waste water system.

Aqua-Guard’s RBS TRITON™ 60 model skimmers were installed in Chevron Canada’s Burnaby Oil Refinery in September of 2008 and have since been in service 24 hours/day, 365 days/year. These skimmers are serviced twice a year, primarily for maintenance purposes.

Shell refineries in Asia and other national oil companies in Latin America also employ Aqua-Guard’s patented RBS TRITON™ oil skimming technology in their industrial processes to help optimize their refining operations and conforming to environmental requirements.
