A PROTOTYPE HIGH SEAS OIL RECOVERY SYSTEM. PHASE I. SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT. VOLUME I

Results are presented on the preliminary design and development of a high seas oil spill recovery system. The oil recovery device consists of a series of vertical discs held in position by horizontal vanes which are attached on the disc peripheries. A stationary hollow trough is mounted through the center of the disc-vane assembly. Between the discs and attached to the top of the shaft are wipers. The discs, immersed less than their radius, rotate through the oil-water liquid to effect oil recovery. Vol. 1 includes Summary; Requirements and constraints; and System design.
