How the ZVA Sidewinder Tube Oil Skimmer works

The Sidewinder™ Tramp Oil Skimmer uses an oleophilic (oil-attracting) tube to pick up oil from the sump. The metal O-ring attached to the tube is for stability as the tube cycles through the coolant. A small white o-ring removes the oil attached to the clear tube and discharges that into the discharge port. The Tube Skimmer is rated at 1 quart per hour. Equipped with a reliable continuous-duty motor, the skimmer can operate effortlessly throughout the day or for a few hours, ensuring the cleanliness of your sump tank.  The Sidewinder Tube Skimmers fits in your hand and can mount under a chip conveyor, or on the side of any tank with several available mounting accessories.

Mounting Options for the ZVA8 Sidewinder

  1. The unit will not mount directly to the BGX2 LockJaw™ Mount we now offer an adapter that allows the LockJaw™ to be mounted to the ZVA (BGX2.ZVA). Both items must be purchased for this to work. Please see accessories below for reference.
  2. Add a BGST4 diverter which will allow you to mount the unit to a LockJaw™ accessory (diverters pay for themselves in saved coolant!!). The diverter uses up 2″ of reach.
  3. Quick mount the unit using the Magnetic Base Option (ZXB8-MAG). See the videos.


  • All ZVA Sidewinder Models with the -08 suffix have an 8 inch reach (discharge from mounting point to tube end). Longer reaches are also available up to 95 inches in 3 inch increments. ZVA Models requires access of 1/2 inch by 3 inches either horizontally or vertically.
  • Maximum fluid temperature for the tubing is 90°F (30°C.)
  • Motor power requirements are very much dependent upon individual situations and can not be exactly determined. If this is information that is being used to set a limit for a fuse, then a professional fuse engineer should be consulted because there are many types to choose from.
