VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: CORIBA 700 SR is covered by U.S. Patent #7678201 (issued on March 16, 2010). The process is designed to remove and recover oil from sand. The product does not react with or alter the oil. Contaminated sand is transferred into a standard sand washer filled with 700 SR. The product is an aqueous solution that, upon contact, reduces the interfacial tension between the oil and the sand. The oil no longer adheres to the sand and is free to float to the surface of the processor and is removed with an auger. The cleaned sand is dried in a centrifuge and the collected liquid is recycled back to the processor. The product has a high vapor pressure and evaporates from the sand leaving no residue or contamination. The separated oil is transferred to a conical vertical tower where it concentrates at the surface and is siphoned off to be used as a fuel or sent to a refinery for further processing. The process solution that collects in the conical tower is recycled back to the processor. The clean, dry sand can be disposed as appropriate. Any sand that collects in the bottom of the conical tower is sent back through the processor. The process can be set up on a beach, waste treatment facility or on a barge for treating sensitive areas like barrier islands. The process chemical is not designed to come into contact with any body of water. There process is not designed to treat contaminated water. The process does not consume the process chemical. Any chemical that remains after the sand has been cleaned can be returned to the manufacturer or sent to an appropriate waste treatment facility.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: CORIBA 700 SR is used at full strength. It is delivered in aqueous solution. The application rate is 200 gallons/ton of oil-contaminated sand.
3. Conditions for Use: CORIBA 700 SR can be applied to contaminated sand as long as the sand mixture is not frozen.
