Title (EN) BARRAGE FOR COLLECTING HYDROCARBONS
(FR) BARRAGE COLLECTEUR D"HYDROCARBURE
Abstract:
(EN) The barrage is aimed at containing and collecting hydrocarbon layers floating at the surface of water stretches (lakes, seas, etc.). It comprises tanks having each an upper opening (16) and a hole (17), and floats (15) which keep these tanks to 9/10th of their height so that the waves flow into the tanks through said openings (16) driving out gradually the water through the holes (17) until the tanks are full of hydrocarbons.
(FR) Le barrage vise a contenir et a collecter les nappes d"hydrocarbures flottant a la surface des plans d"eau (lacs, mers, etc.). Il est constitue par des cuves presentant une ouverture superieure (16) et un orifice (17), et par des flotteurs (15) qui maintiennent ces cuves immergees au 9/10 de leur hauteur de maniere que les vagues se deversent dans les cuves a travers lesdites ouvertures (16) en chassant progressivement l"eau a travers les orifices (17) jusqu"a ce que les cuves soient completement remplies d"hydrocarbures.
