OLD: BP GULF of Mexico OIL LEAK--What Can Gooneybird Can Do to Help

GooneyOil Recovery System

Oil-Spill Containment System

Above is a 1907 Patent Drawing
--------
Some of the words in the picture that are not legible are:  TANKER, DOWNWIND UNITS TURNED OFF, 15 DEGREE OIL DEFLECTION

With this drawing, the depth is determined by the diameter of the ring being 1/2 mile and pressure capable at 217 PSI.  Actual depth and the arc-distance between the units is 486.55'. 217 psi CONTINUOUS OPERATION is the best I can seem to get for a minimum of 3.6 CFM at depth-pressure.  
Then the number of floating aeration units is equal to the perimeter / diffuser-depth.  Inner ring = 17. Second Ring 34, Outer Ring = 51. TOTAL 102  

Provisional Patent Applied For--PATENT PENDING

Each "Double D" is a complete aeration system with a diffuser directly below the buoy.  The buoy is anchored straight down.  A pontoon type boat holds the aeration system (See facsimile) and has attached to it in a trailer, the fuel supply.  An air line is attached to the top 500 feet of anchor cable to supply air to the diffusers below. 

Drawings for the movable recovery systems are forthcoming.  With these systems, we can capture virtually all the floating oil in the vicinity of the spill.  Other systems may be used to de-stratify the plumes of oil that are lingering below the surface.  Proper aeration has the natural affect of settling the stratified matter to the bottom, or lifting it to the surface.  This is what generally happens when the aerated water is blended from bottom to top, causing all the water to become the same temperature.
