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

Two filter/coalescer type separators designed to remove oil from water were selected from previous screening tests. The improved versions of these units were evaluated at a shore-based test facility. Fresh and salt water, contaminated with various oils and test dust, were used to simulate bilge and ballast processing conditions. One separator rated at 25 GPM produced an acceptable water effluent when tested with a low-emulsifying pump but proved unsatisfactory with a centrifugal pump. An improved 100 GPM version of a previously tested 50 GPM separator produced an acceptable water effluent when tested with a centrifugal pump. The effluent was acceptable except for short periods of marginal performance which were noted during tests involving crankcase drainings. (Author)
