This study is about the non-uniform electric field for splitting of water in oil emulsion. If the process occurs in an inhomogeneous electrical field, the drops are polarized and then their mobility is increased. The emulsion drops will be charged and move toward the central point of splitter where the maximum intensity of electrical field has been concentrated. In this process, the drops encounter and form bigger and heavier drops, which are settled down due to gravity. Using the non-uniform electric method with 10500 Volt intensity, 50 Hertz frequency and 1 degree Celsius temperature, the 99 % splitting of emulsion was observed.
