Who We Are

Zebra Skimmers began in a garage in 1994 making high-quality low-cost machines for metalworking fluids filtration. Customers encouraged us to grow beyond the conventional marketplace. With their help we created the gravity-separating disk skimmer and the Sidewinder tube skimmer.

Today we have customers worldwide. They came to us because we are innovative and cost effective. They return because of our performance, service, guarantees and American quality.

Our mission has always been to provide the metalworking industry and other industries with the oil skimmers and metalworking fluid management systems they need to complete jobs quickly and efficiently. Our innovative and affordable solutions have garnered us many accolades, but our continued growth is due in no small part to our excellent customer service, our satisfaction guarantees, and the performance of our tools. Among our diverse selection of oil skimmers and metalworking fluid management systems, you can expect to find:

  • Coolant management equipment, which includes coolant mixers, proportioning pumps, and coolant automation systems to mix and deliver fluid solutions at the desired concentrations.
  • Industrial oil skimmers, including belt skimmers, disk skimmers, tube oil skimmers, and individual sump and portable separators coalescers for the removal of surface and tramp oils from fluids.
  • Aeration or circulation equipment and odor control tablets to control fluid odor.
  • Industrial fluid monitoring equipment, including refractometers to verify fluid solution concentrations, testing strips to measure pH, and water hardness testing sticks.

We also have a strong distribution support system in our industry. Our distributors enjoy the full support of the factory, knowing that our customers always buy from them so that they have all the advantages of local support and service. Our national network of manufacturers reps assures distributors that they always have technical factory expertise visiting them regularly. And our reps know that we have an intensive education program in place that conveys the competence and confidence of the factory to themselves, and to the distributors.

Thank you for considering Zebra Skimmers products. We guarantee your satisfaction — it’s baked into our quality.

Industries We Serve

The automotive industry creates jobs. Building 60 million vehicles requires the employment of about 9 million people directly in making the vehicles and the parts that go into these vehicles. This is over 5 percent of the world's total manufacturing employment. Opportunities in the automotive industry are almost endless. However, two key trends are set to further push the automotive industry to the future: automation and integration.

The manufacturing industries are industries transforming goods, but they also assist with the repair and installation of industrial equipment and subcontracting operations for third parties. The way we produce and consume goods has changed since the Industrial Revolution. Its innovation allows nations to become increasingly more productive in the services offered. The future of manufacturing lies in automation and with that, increases the safety of the workers.

The Aerospace and Defense Industry is made of manufacturers who develop spacecraft and aircraft for the military aircraft, commercial aircraft, tanks, missiles, and other weapon related equipment. Companies in the aerospace and defense industry are expected to go further into the digital future, upgrading to automated smart factories. This will give rise to more efficient production along with a faster design-to-delivery process.

Biotechnology is a science-driven industry sector that uses living organisms and molecular biology to mainly produce healthcare-related products. They are the companies whose products or services primarily use biotechnology methods for their production, design or delivery. Biotech companies mainly work in the fields of medicine, agriculture, crop production, non-food use of crops and heavy industry and are leading the way with innovative automation processes to better the lives of their workers and customers.

The Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Hunting sector primarily engages in growing crops, raising animals, harvesting timber, fish and other animals from a farm, ranch, or their natural habitats. The future of the agriculture sector will use sophisticated technologies such as automation and robots, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial images, and GPS technology. These advanced techniques, processes and systems will allow farms to be more profitable, efficient, safe, and environmentally sustainable.

Energy and utilities companies are responsible for the safe, secure, reliable, and sustainable generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity, natural gas, and water. Emerging technologies such as automation, grid infrastructure, and hiring their workforce are some of the challenges currently facing the utilities industry today. By making the human aspects easier, it helps with the retention of qualified employees.
