TECHNIQUES FOR MIXING DISPERSANT-TREATED OIL SLICKS INTO THE WATER

The EPA sponsored a project to test the relative effectiveness of 4 devices for adding mixing energy to an oil slick under varied conditions. The devices are a 5-bar gate, 2 fire-hose streams, a modified 5-bar gate, and a small outboard motorboat. Tow speeds, wave conditions, and oil-water interfacial tension were varied. Underwater photography was used to record the depth of penetration of the oil droplets caused by the mixing devices at each test condition.
