OIL-WATER REGENERATIVE SEPARATOR--PHASE 1
In order to develop a device for removing oil from oil-water ballast discharges, Phase I evaluates a series of commercially available candidate filter media to determine their oil-water separation characteristics. Investigated were glass, porous ceramics, metals, wools, plastics, activated carbon, anthracite fibrous non-woven mattings, and reticulated (open-pore) foams. Best appeared to be a partially compacted bed, of randomly oriented pieces of an open-structured polyurethane foam for a wide variety of oil contaminants, including crude oil and Bunker "C". Simple expression permits reuse.
