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 Magnetic Base Option

  • Magnetic base option for Sidewinder™ without the Diverter™
  • Magnetic option for Sidewinder™ base angle (base angle purchased separately)


Zebra 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
