The paper analyses the influence of the conditions of oil-in-water emulsion formation in terms of the size of water droplets. Based on the similarity of water-in-oil emulsion formation processes in the laboratory and theoretical laws of droplet formation, the pipeline diameters of coalescing apparatus as well as the flow speed were determined, which ensured formation of droplets of optimal diameter for settling process.
