TEST AND EVALUATION OF OIL POLLUTION ABATEMENT DEVICES FOR SHIPBOARD USE, PHASE I

A series of tests was conducted to assess the ability of selected equipments to separate oil from water and to continuously detect oil in water. These tests were intended to simulate the conditions expected to be encountered by such equipments on Coast Guard cutters. The separator tests consisted primarily of processing an emulsion of no. 2 diesel fuel and fresh water as supplied by a centrifugal pump. The monitor tests addressed the conditions likely to produce erroneous readings in a shipboard environment. Results are presented. (Modified author abstract)
