MNL34: Chapter 10-Fixed Submersion Plane Skimmers

    Pages: 4    Published: Oct 1998


    Abstract

    Fixed submersion plane skimmers present a fixed or stationary plane to the oil/water interface as the skimmer is advanced through a slick. The plane causes an oil/water mixture to be submerged, and the buoyant force of the oil directs it up to a collection well. The collection well has discharge ports along its bottom, allowing water to be released and providing gravity oil/water separation.
