Basic Oil Water Separator Design
A description of the theory behind oil water separators and how they work. Explains Stokes Law, the factors within Stokes Law and how each one of them effects the performance of an oil water separator. Provides a brief history of how oil water separators were developed and the importance of droplet distribution to performance of an oil water separator. Provides a description of laboratory trials that Baldwin conducted to enable the development of our computer program to predict oil water separator performance and hence provide the basis for our oil water separator dsign.
