Flybye Introduces Bird Deterrent

Installing the spikes on ledges around treatment plants deters medium-sized birds from landing and roosting.

The sealant performs well on bolts with 1/2- to 3/4-inch diameters and long engagement areas. The black anaerobic paste resists temperatures of -65 degrees F to 300 degrees F and handles pressures to 10,000 psi.

Oil Skimmers Offers Model 6V Brill Recovery System

The Model 6V Brill oil recovery system from Oil Skimmers is designed to remove petroleum-based oils, animal and vegetable fats, grease and oily waste floating on water. Oil sticks to the outside of a specially formulated polyurethane, closed-loop collector tube that snakes over and around debris. It is lifted out of the water and drawn through scrapers that remove the oil. The clean tube is returned to the water surface to gather more oil. Tubes can withstand temperatures up to 200 degrees F and will not fracture in freezing conditions. Made with non-clogging, long-lasting components, the unit can run unattended 24 hours a day, year-round. The system can remove as much as 100 gallons of waste oil per hour, which can be decanted into drums for reuse or resale. 800/200-4603; www.oilskim.com.
