“Decantation to separate oil and water ”

After oil and water are extracted from oil shale at the QER New Fuels Development Centre, they settle in measure tanks which are kept warm to help the oil and water to separate into layers. In this way, the water can be decanted off to separate it from the oil. In this lesson you will learn to decant a mixture of oil and water.

In this lesson, students will investigate decanting as a means of separating a mixture of oil and water.

This lesson has been designed to align with the science Australian Curriculum year 7.
