In recent years the subject of oil spills has become of increased public interest. The demand for quick, effective solutions to the problem has brought about extensive programs for the development of equipment and technology for the safe, fast and efficient recovery of spilled oils from water. Research was begun to develop a full scale prototype oil/water separator, potentially capable of filling the need for a continuous, rapid, efficient oil/water separator, operable in choppy to moderately heavy seas, and capable of separating low concentration oil/water mixtures into recovered oil nearly free of water and clear water suitable for return to sea. A simple vortex separation process is described.
