Air handling specialists Hi-line Industries reports it has recently developed this process, which is a new concept in the treatment of compressor condensate discharge and the latest ConSEP products also provide a 10% higher volumetric capacity than their previous Gen 2 range, enabling the utilisation of greater oleophilic
as well as superior activated carbon filtration media.
2009) mentioned that among synthetic products, polypropylene and polyurethane foams are the most widely used sorbents because of their highly oleophilic
and hydrophobic properties.
Formation of oil shale sludge mainly occurs in the retorting process in which a large amount of shale dust contained in the retorting gas and vapor is absorbed by fine shale oil mist to generate a sort of oleophilic
substance, which then goes through a violent agitation to transform into colloidal semisolid material, i.
On my way back, I read a scientific article that highlighted the hydrophobic and oleophilic
characteristics of kapok fibers.
Adjustable straps that hold the oleophilic
, inclined, polypropylene coalescing plates in
US Patent 8,785,347 (July 22, 2014), "Gulf Oil Spill Underwater Oleophilic
Hydrophobic Oil-Capturing Water Permeable Drag-Net," William Redvers Belisle (New Orleans, Louisiana, USA).
It was found that the modified bagasse was significantly more oleophilic
than the raw bagasse.
They have good hydrophobic and oleophilic
properties, but their non-biodegradability is a major disadvantage (Wei et al, 2003).
They are naturally oleophilic
but can be treated to increase wettability.
Rival teams have applied nanotechnology to the problem to produce ultra-lightweight sponges that are oleophilic
and hydrophobic -- they love oil but repel water.
To improve the dispersion of LCB in aqueous solution, LCB was pretreated by means of SDBS, by which SDBS was adsorbed onto the surface or into pores of LCB, and the hydrophilic and oleophilic
features of MLCB were improved.
Lead author Daniel Hashim, a graduate student in the Rice lab of materials scientist Pulickel Ajayan, said the blocks are both superhydrophobic (they hate water, so they float really well) and oleophilic
(they love oil).
