IMPORTANT - REACH LENGTH

A common mistake made is ordering the overall length of tubing that you need rather than the reach length. Reach is the measurement from the base of the skimmer down into the tank, not the overall length of the tube, which is approximately double the reach plus another 14”. For example, a reach length of 11” is actually an overall length of tubing that is 36” in circumference. See SPECS diagram on the Specifications tab for help with the measurement.

ORDERING INFORMATION

Please note that pricing is tiered based on the reach length you need. The most common reach lengths, 8”, 11”, and 14", are set up with their own part number for ease of ordering. If you need a longer reach length, please select the item number with the range that meets your reach requirements. Reach lengths are available in 3” increments. For example, if you need a reach length of 20”, you would select the Z-ZVA8-17 to 29 part number and specify in the order comments section that you need the 20” reach.

Recommended Accessory

Any skimmer running continuously with little or no oil on the top of the tank will start skimming off coolant.

Zebra Diverter™ Reduces Coolant Waste

Good coolants can act like oil, which means a mechanical skimmer draws up some coolant along with the tramp oils.  The Diverter™ saves your coolant by separating it from the tramp oils and returning it to the sump.

  • Heavy-duty steel construction
  • Brass outlet ports with discharge pipes
  • Mounting hardware included
  • Works with Sidewinder™ and Belt Skimmer and many other brand skimmers
  • For oil volumes to 2 quarts per hour (larger unit available for high oil volumes)
  • One year warranty
  • Dimensions: 7x3x2.5"
  • Raises unit by 2.5".  Please account for when determining reach.

Zebra Lockjaw™ Makes Installation a Snap

Hard-mounting a skimmer may be impractical for your operations due to machine maintenance.  You may just want it to be portable.  The Lockjaw™ mounts below the skimmer, allowing it to mount and be removed easily.

  • Heavy-duty steel construction
  • Fits open drums or pails and tank walls to 1/4" thick
  • Mounts below Sidewinder™ Tube Skimmer

Zebra Base Plate with Magnetic Option

  • Sidewinder™ base plate for ZVA8 models
  • Magnetic option for Sidewinder™ base plate (base plate is purchased separately)
  • Note: Magnetic base option is for using the Sidewinder™ without the Diverter™

Zebra 24-Hour Timer

Any skimmer running continuously with little or no oil on the top of the tank will start skimming off coolant.

  • Keep your oil skimming on schedule
  • Stop burning out intermittent-duty motors
  • One year warranty
