This report reviews the state-of-the-art for oil/water separating devices and processes. Devices and process are classified according to the primary mechanism that induces separation of oil/water mixtures. The basic concepts, specific design features, operational conditions, and limitations of each category are discussed. Literature on test evaluation of a variety of devices is critiqued on the basis of actual or potential success in treating various oil/water system states. No single technique can separate all oil/water system states efficiently. Specific deficiencies in existing technology have been identified.
Prepared by Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunwicks, N.J. under Grant no. R803978. Issued April 1978. Includes bibliographical references (pages 84-96).
