Abstract:

A new method of separating free oil from oilwater mixtures is under development at the Civil Engineering Laboratory. This technique uses the fluid-dynamic phenomenon, called the wall attachment, or Coanda effect such a separator would be considerably smaller than the conventional gross separators of the laminar flow types. This report describes in detail the development program of the separator from the original single-stage separator through the 20-gpm multi-stage separator.
