DEVELOPMENT AND PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF A SORBENT-OIL RECOVERY SYSTEM

A development program was completed and preliminary designs were prepared for 3000 gallon/hour protected water and 10,000 gallon/hour unprotected water Sorbent Oil Recovery Systems. The program showed that a continuous sorbent-oil recovery system is feasible using 30 or 80 PPI polyurethane sorbent chips. In one pass about 90 percent of the oil in a 1.5 mm slick can be recovered. The water content of the Recovered Fluid is less than 10 percent. The preliminary designs are presented with detailed descriptions of the system components, operating procedures, and costs.
