Installation for the collection of oil products from the surface of the water
The installation design consists of several elements: body, float, vacuum tank, suction head and pipeline. The shape of the body is made in the form of a glass, connected to the reservoir with the help of suction nozzles. The components of this structure provide for the collection of oil products from sources that have a variable water level.
How it works
The device is placed above the surface of settling ponds, storage ponds and other closed water bodies. Even the minimum level of a layer of substances is suitable for its work.
By supplying air with simultaneous displacement of water, the suction mechanisms of the unit collect and vertically move oil products. Impurities of substances with air particles enter the installation from a depth of about 10 meters. This does not take into account the viscosity of the collected mixture. Water is separated from oil products using a two-level system. At the output, layers of polluted matter are obtained, which contain almost no moisture and are ready for further processing. The efficiency of this equipment depends on the collection height, air pressure, layer thickness and the like. Using the unit will help to cope with emergency leaks and dispose of hazardous products without harm to the natural environment.
