EVALUATION OF CONCEPTS FOR SEPARATING OIL FROM WATER DISCHARGED FROM SHIPS

Unique concepts for separating oil from water discharged from ships were evaluated and reported. The report is a brief summary of the work accomplished, results obtained, and conclusions reached after a careful evaluation of the final reports. For comparison purposes test results on typical cartridge coalescers are included. The eight systems evaluated are: (1) Tubular membrane separator; (2) Centrifugal coalescer separator; (3) Laminar flow coalescing plate separator; (4) Ultrafiltration separator; (5) Electrochemical flotation separator; (6) Vacuum desorption air flotation separation; (7) Viscosity separation; (8) Vortex separation.
