Analyzing performance and design of the available pumps we are inclined to use screw pumps in our aim to reduce water content in the skimmer.
Its geometry and the way in which power transmission takes
place makes us think that they are the most suitable to work together with a centrifugal separator.
Now is the time to take action: We will create a prototype that will allow us to verify the results of our theoretical study.
The challenge in front of us is huge. We have the need to design and manufacture three devices in one: a weir skimmer, an Archimedes screw pump and a centrifugal separator.
Since we have a long experience in skimmers manufacture we will leave it for the last moment, so we will concentrate at first on the design and manufacture of the pump as it represents the core of this new equipment for Oil Spill Response. We will call it:
