Title (EN) IMPROVED OIL/WATER SEPARATOR
(FR) SEPARATEUR HUILE/EAU AMELIORE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An oil/water separator includes an ingress (21,221) for an oil/water mixture and a coalescing means (16,116) through which the oil/water mixture passes to reach an oil retention chamber (17,217). Preferably, the coalescing means (16,116) is an open cell foam, such as reticulated polyurethane foam, and is provided in an annular configuration (16). In a preferred embodiment, the oil/water separator comprises a means for generating an oil /water mixture vortex positioned upstream of the coalescing means (16,116).
(FR)L'invention concerne un séparateur huile/eau comprenant une admission (21,221) destinée à un mélange huile/eau et des moyens coalescents (16,116) à travers lesquels le mélange huile/eau passe de manière à atteindre une chambre de retenue d'huile (17,217). Les moyens coalescents (16,116) se présentent, de préférence, sous la forme d'une mousse à cellules ouvertes, telle qu'une mousse de polyuréthanne réticulée, et dans une conception annulaire (16). Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, le séparateur huile/eau comprend des moyens permettant de produire un tourbillon de mélange huile/eau positionné en amont des moyens coalescents (16,116).
