Title
(EN) SOLID PRODUCTION SYSTEMS, DEVICES, AND METHODS UTILIZING OLEOPHILIC SURFACES
(FR) SYSTÈMES, DISPOSITIFS ET PROCÉDÉS DE PRODUCTION DE SOLIDES UTILISANT DES SURFACES OLÉOPHILES
Abstract
(EN)
Solid production systems, devices, and methods utilizing oleophilic surfaces are provided in accordance with various embodiments. Some embodiments include a water tank used to store fresh water. Some embodiments include an emulsion tank that may include a set of auxiliary components that may be utilized to create and/or to pump an emulsion. This auxiliary equipment may include suction headers, ejectors, pumps, mechanical mixers, and/or hydrodynamic mixers, for example. Some embodiments include a heat exchanger that may produce a cold surface for ice formation. This surface may include an oleophilic surface that may produce an affinity for oils and/or other non-polar materials. Some embodiments include piping that may allow for the connection of the other components such that ice may be formed from a flow of water from the emulsion and the overflow may be returned to the emulsion tank. Ice making methods are also provided.

Divers modes de réalisation concernent des systèmes, des dispositifs et des procédés de production de solides utilisant des surfaces oléophiles. Certains modes de réalisation comprennent un réservoir d'eau utilisé pour stocker de l'eau fraîche. Certains modes de réalisation comprennent un réservoir d'émulsion qui peut comprendre un ensemble de composants auxiliaires qui peuvent être utilisés pour créer et/ou pomper une émulsion. Cet équipement auxiliaire peut comprendre des collecteurs d'aspiration, des éjecteurs, des pompes, des mélangeurs mécaniques et/ou des mélangeurs hydrodynamiques, par exemple. Certains modes de réalisation comprennent un échangeur de chaleur qui peut produire une surface froide pour la formation de glace. Cette surface peut comprendre une surface oléophile qui peut produire une affinité pour des huiles et/ou d'autres matériaux non polaires. Certains modes de réalisation comprennent une tuyauterie qui peut permettre le raccordement des autres composants de telle sorte que la glace puisse être formée à partir d'un écoulement d'eau à partir de l'émulsion et le trop-plein puisse être renvoyé au réservoir d'émulsion. L'invention concerne également des procédés de production de glaçons.
