Abstract:

A pair of pumps driven by a common motor draw in ambient seawater through one and expel it through the other to following electronic instrumentation. Coupled between the pumps, a rapidly rotating disk receives the flow of seawater and radially dissipates it in a multitude of separated droplets. The droplets are collected in a reservoir and the second pump expels it to the instrumentation. Where the flowing seawater is separated into droplets by the rapidly spinning disk, a break is created in the electrical conductivity continuity so that the following electronic instrumentation is not influenced by possible electrical potentials in the ambient seawater.
