Description

This project's objective was to develop and test an in-line, flow through Oil Recovery Sensor (RE Sensor) to monitor in real time the percentage of oil and water in fluid recovered during oil spill response operations. This sensor was tested at Ohmsett in June, 2018 with multiple salinities and oil types. Average percentage error across all tests was 6%.
