Back some years ago we were experiencing problems removing aluminium fines from our wash process. This resulted in our aluminium sheets being left with a fine powdery deposit after washing. We fitted a number of oil skimming devices from well known companies but after a short period of time they all gave up the ghost, the main problems being that their motors were unable to deal with our somewhat aggressive wash plant environment.
At that point Border Automation came on board and offered us their solution for oil skimming on a try and buy basis. We put it on trial and, as they say, “it did what it says on the box”. After thoroughly satisfying ourselves on its performance we bought a number of others for the remaining tanks. I have no hesitation whatever in recommending Border’s products to anyone wishing to solve similar problems.
