ASTM Skimmer Trials for High Efficiency Skimming System

Opportunities to test oil spill response equipment in the real world are few and far between. Test tanks provide an opportunity to test full scale response equipment in a controlled environment, to support research and development and responder proficiency. Nuka Research is supporting efficiency testing of oleophilic skimmers in accordance with ASTM F2709-15 in order to train personnel from an Alaska oil spill removal organization and gather data to support contingency planning assumptions for temporary storage requirements.

We have provided third party documentation and assistance with experimental design for testing runs at the Ohmsett facility (Oil Spill Response Research and Renewable Energy Testing Facility) in New Jersey and at various test tanks in Alaska.
