It is very difficult and important to remove the emulsified oil from wastewater. Considering the cavitations effect will improve some physical and chemical process, an airing pore plate capitation device were designed and used to remove emulsified oil from wastewater. Different amount and pressure of aeration, different capitations number were put into effect, and the connection between amount of aeration, cavitations number and the removal ratio, the energy needed and the amount of aeration were studied as well. According to the experiment, with the method of aeration, 60% or so oil were removed, about 45% energy were saved, while the aeration ratio was about 1.1%.
