The report covers the test and evaluation of a Fram Corporation Model OWS-23-FCI-USCG oil/water separator to determine its suitability as a shipboard oil pollution control device. The device uses gravity separation to remove free and unemulsified oil from water. Based on an evaluation of the test results, degree of conformance to the general test goals, and performance relative to the performance of other separators evaluated during the program, this report concludes that the separator should be considered a candidate for further detailed testing to confirm its suitability as a first-generation oil/water separation system for shipboard use.
