Abstract : The patent describes an oil-water separating method and apparatus using the Coanda Effect for separating oil from an oil-water mixture in a continuous manner. The device comprises a housing having an inlet port, an outlet port and a pair of offsetted walls. The oil-water mixture enters the housing parallel to the offsetted walls. A pair of concavely curved walls having an apex adjacent the inlet port splits the entering oil-water mixture into two sub-jets. Each sub-jet enters a bounded region where oil is separated from the water before the oil-water mixture exits the housing.
