Tornado / Magnetic oil trap

Tornado
Tornado

The damage caused by the oil spill to the natural environment is immeasurable. This year, another oil spill in Russia caused widespread pollution, which was caused by the rapid spread of oil in the water and could not be stopped in time. In order to solve the problem of the rapid diffusion of oil in the sea, this design USES the principle of magnetic separation of oil and water to prevent diffusion. The device is usually placed on the tanker and pushed into the sea when oil leakage occurs. The device starts quickly and USES strong magnetic force to bind the surrounding oil in a small area to prevent diffusion.
