The light influence on crude oil-seawater emulsion
Languages of publication
The solar energy influence on light attenuation coefficient (LAC) spectrum and particle size distribution (PSD) of laboratory crude oil-seawater emulsion was investigated. It was demonstrated that light facilities dispergation of emulsion and cauises the increase of LAC in ultraviolet range during storing.PSD of crude oil droplets (d ? 0.5 ?m) in emulsion did not depend on lighting conditions during storing of emulsion.Because of increase of lighy attenuation coefficient selectivity for illuminated emulsion, the increase of number of small droplets (d ?0.5 ?m) of crude oil is highly probable.
