Home > Fuzzy2 Oil Skimmer Material Exceeds Expectations for Gulf Oil Spill Clean-up

Untitled Document
CLEVELAND, Ohio - June 10, 2010 - Abanaki Corporation reports that its
patent-pending Fuzzy2 oil skimmer material has been at work on the oil
spill in the Gulf of Mexico for 38 days and is exceeding expectations
by recovering  up to 385 gallons of oil per minute from the water's
surface, more than three times the capacity of ordinary skimmer
material.
 
Abanaki's Fuzzy2 material is attached to the surface of 30-inch
diameter skimming disks on a floating skimmer made by CRUCIAL Inc. of Gretna,
Louisiana.   CRUCIAL has tested the material in front of oil clean-up
experts, and the company expects to see an increase in orders for its
disk skimmer equipment.

A disk skimmer uses a rotating disk to remove oil from water.
Oleophilic (oil attracting) material collects oil as the disk passes
through the water, and wiper blades scrape off the oil for collection.
Unlike other skimmer disk materials, Fuzzy2 has a hairy surface that
greatly increases its surface area, making it more effective at
removing oil floating on the surface of the gulf.  According to Tom
Hobson President of Abanaki  "The beauty of the Fuzzy2 is that it can
be retrofitted to virtually any brand of drum or disk type skimmer out
there, making it possible for existing skimmers to triple their pickup
rate".
 
A mile below the water surface, the Deepwater Horizon oil well has
spewed oil following an explosion. The spill has exceeded the Exxon
Valdez as the worst spill in U.S. history.
