MSR Oil Water Separator

MSR Coalescing Plate Modules are designed to separate oil from water utilizing only gravity for motive force and the buoyancy of oil droplets. Unlike large empty-tank separators, they enable maintaining laminar flow of the oil droplets.
The Coalescing Plates are closely spaced to minimize rise distance and ensure capture of even very small droplets. As more droplets are captured they form a layer on the plates, merge into larger droplets and evenly break loose as large drops and migrate to the surface – larger droplets rise more quickly than small ones. The oil forms a layer on the surface of the water and is subsequently removed for recycling.
