DEVELOPMENT OF A SPILLED OIL RECOVERY SEPARATOR FOR USE AS PART OF AN OIL SPILL REMOVAL DEVICE

This report describes the development of an oil-water separator for use with oil spill clean-up equipment. The development is an extension of technology used previously in designing oil-water separation devices for cleaning bilge and ballast discharge waters. A new design was needed to meet the different flow rate, separation performance, head and suction capability, oil type, and oil inlet concentration requirements. A prototype centrifugal, axial flow separator with a nominal fluid throughput of 100 gpm was developed. This report details the design, fabrication, testing and control of the unit. (Author)
