air tank for vacuum

we are trying to vacuum up. The issue is the heat involved along with the length of hose needed to do the job. I apologize for not stating that in the original text. The hose is 15 foot long, 1 inch diameter. The depth of the oil is only around 1 to 1 1/2 inches, but, it covers an area approximately 160 square feet. I would be constantly pulling air along with the oil. Sometimes, though, there is debris that will get vacuumed up. All of these minor items, i believe, causes the issue that I have. I'm just not sure of a good way to do this, other than when the oil is cooled off. As for the valve on the vacuum line, I should be able to put a valve on the vacuum head. I can make it adjustable and see what happens.

Where is the oil before it gets spread out like that? Any chance of using gravity to collect it? Or vacuum it out of whatever it came out of?
