Title (EN) BRUSH WHEEL FOR COLLECTING OIL FROM A SURFACE OF WATER
(FR) BROSSE CIRCULAIRE CONÇUE POUR RECUEILLIR DU PÉTROLE SUR UNE SURFACE D'EAU
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a brush wheel for collecting oil from a surface of water, the brush wheel comprising an annular brush part (30) comprising bristles (31) extending away from the center of annulus (32) of the annular brush part (30), wherein the brush wheel further comprises protrusions (33) for contacting with ice floating on the surface of water and moving the ice in the direction of rotation (R) when the brush wheel is rotated. The invention also relates to a method for collecting oil from a surface of water comprising ice, the method comprising providing a brush wheel as defined above at least partly submerged in water; rotating the at least partly sub- merged brush wheel; pushing ice floating at least partly on the surface of water and contacting the brush wheel to under the surface of water using protrusions (33) comprised in the rotating brush wheel, for separating oil from ice to the surface of water; collecting oil to the bristles (31) of the rotating brush wheel; and scraping oil from the bristles (31) of the rotating brush wheel.
(FR) Cette invention concerne une brosse circulaire conçue pour recueillir du pétrole sur une surface d'eau, ladite brosse circulaire comprenant une partie de brosse annulaire (30) comprenant des soies (31) s'étendant à l'écart du centre de l'anneau (32) de la partie de brosse annulaire (30), ladite brosse circulaire comprend en outre des saillies (33) destinées à entrer en contact avec de la glace flottant à la surface de l'eau et à déplacer la glace dans le sens de rotation (R) lorsque la brosse circulaire est entraînée en rotation. L'invention concerne en outre un procédé de collecte de pétrole sur surface d'eau comprenant de la glace, ledit procédé comprenant les étapes consistant à : utiliser une brosse circulaire telle que définie ci-dessus au moins partiellement immergée dans l'eau ; entraîner en rotation ladite brosse circulaire au moins partiellement immergée ; pousser sous la surface de l'eau la glace flottant au moins partiellement sur la surface de l'eau et en contact avec la brosse circulaire à l'aide des saillies (33) formées sur ladite brosse circulaire rotative, pour séparer le pétrole de la glace sur la surface de l'eau ; recueillir le pétrole sur les soies (31) de la brosse circulaire rotative ; et racler le pétrole sur les soies (31) de la brosse circulaire rotative.
