AN OILY WATER SEPARATOR SYSTEM
This paper discusses a unique (patent applied for) oily-water separation system for shipboard use. One pilot plant has already been placed on board an 80,000 ton tanker, the S.S. AMERICA SUN. In general, the system processes any oily-water mixture through its various components to effect essentially the complete separation of the oil and water using only physical processes and without any recourse to heat or chemicals.
