DEVELOPMENT OF A COALESCING TYPE OIL WATER SEPARATOR FOR MARINE SERVICE

This paper discusses the development and application of a coalescent type oil water separator suitable for shipboard service. The coalsecent separator utilizing a disposable coalescing media is described relative to its utilization in vessel bilge, ballast, and cargo tank cleaning systems. Test methods and test results are presented demonstrating the ability of the separator to produce effluent containing less than 100 ppm oil when supplied with oil water mixtures, including emulsified mixtures. Efficient separation is maintained with inlet mixture of oil concentration up to 100 percent. Oil reclaimed in the separator contains less than 1 percent water and is, therefore, suitable for use as a fuel in the ships boiler.
