DEVELOPMENT OF SHIPBOARD OIL/WATER SEPARATION SYSTEMS
Several technologies are being considered at the Naval Ship Research and development Center to treat shipboard oily wastes in order to meet this requirement. The effort is sponsored by the Naval Ship Systems Command. In addition to this study of shipboard treatment technologies, NSRDC Annapolis is evaluating full-scale commercially available oil/water separators in a 100 gpm facility simulating actual shipboard conditions. Systems comprising several technologies are being evaluated. The preliminary results of the evaluations indicate that the requirement for no more than 10 ppm oil in the effluent water can be attained with some commercially available hardware during 500,000-gal tests, without the need for maintenance. The discharge oil during these periods is of a low enough water concentration to be considered economically reclaimable.
