Title:
DEVICE FOR RECOVERING OIL FROM AN OIL-SLICK ON A STRETCH OF WATER
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2001090486
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device for recovering oil from an oil-slick on a stretch of water. The inventive device is supported on the water by at least one first floating body and is provided with an inlet that is open on the side facing the oil-slick and that flows on the other side into a channel with side walls. The channel into which the inlet leads is provided with at least one separating body that extends between the side walls of the channel in such a manner that an upper drain zone is formed above the separating body and a separate lower drain zone below said separating body. The front edge of the separating body facing the oil-slick is substantially disposed on the level of the water/oil interface and the oil can be discharged from the upper drain zone. The invention makes thus use of the natural interface between the oil-slick and the subjacent water.
