Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc. announced that the Company has been invited to be a guest speaker at the upcoming Clean Gulf Training and Exhibition on November 30-December 1 in San Antonio, Texas. EVTN will display its new high volume Submersible Voraxial® 8000 Separator at this Exhibition. The Exhibition is the “World’s Largest Oil Spill Response & Training Event.”
EVTN’s Dr. Daniel Samela, PhD will present a paper titled “Voraxial® Oil Spill Recovery System – A System Designed for Response on Vessels of Opportunity.” EVTN is one of two selected companies to present their technologies during the session titled: “Response Equipment and Technologies.” The third scheduled presenter for this session is the Manager for Oil Spill Technology for the BP Group Crises & Continuity Management Department. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion titled “Never been seen before technology to recover oil spills and make them go away,” that emphasizes bringing new technologies to market.
The Voraxial® 8000 Submersible represents a breakthrough in fluid and fluid/solid separation technology that enables efficient, high volume oil spill recovery. The Voraxial® 8000 processes up to seven (7) million gallons of oil and water per day which is equivalent to 5000 gallons (40 tons) per minute. To put the volume of the Voraxial® 8000 in perspective, this equipment processes about three times the total estimated volume of the oil spill flow rate from the Deep Water Horizon accident in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Voraxial®8000 Separator can be installed onboard a vessel or submerged in the ocean for separation of large volumes of oil and water recovered from skimming. The Submersible Voraxial® design is the only oil-water separator that can operate in the water to treat oil slicks. Further, the Submersible Voraxial® can be lowered deep into the ocean to treat underwater oil spills and oil plumes. The compactness, light weight and low energy requirements of the Voraxial® enables the Voraxial® to be installed on new vessels or retrofitted on existing vessels for oil spill response. Similar to other auxiliary equipment on vessels such as firefighting hoses, the Voraxial’s® small footprint allows it to be secured on supply vessels that currently serve offshore oil platforms, without interfering with the main function of the vessel. Further, the compactness of the Voraxial® enables the proposed next generation oil spill response systems to be helicopter deployed or secured onboard oil platforms and tankers as well as in harbors and other sensitive locations.
