AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF A WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR SHIPBOARD USE

An experimental study has been made of a waste treatment system using membrane lined tubes for filtration and concentration and a compact pebble bed incinerator for sludge disposal. Various ultra-filter membranes were tested at varying feed concentration, pressures and flow speeds. Effluent rate and quality were measured. The incinerator was constructed and tested with satisfactory results burning a digested sludge of 6% solids concentration. (Author)
