RPC DIVISION, MIDLAND-ROSS CORP. 10-GALLON-PER-MINUTE LIQUID/LIQUID SEPARATOR
The report covers the test and evaluation of an RPC Division, Midland-Ross Corp. 10-gpm liquid/liquid separator to determine its suitability as a shipboard oil pollution control device. Based on an evaluation of test results, degree of conformance to the general test goals, and performance relative to the performance of other separators evaluated during the program, this report concludes that: the test item is more effective with coalescer elements installed in all three stages. Redesign of the vessel may be required, however, to enhance complete separation and removal of coalesced oil at high oil injection rates, the high pressure drop across the test unit at the increased flow rate and the test unit weight-to-capacity ratio are considered to be excessive.
