This report presents the results of an investigation of slop tank designs as related to use aboard ship as gravity separators for oily water. Based on both laboratory tests and tanker experience, design considerations and guidelines on inlet configurations, outlets, tank structure, system design, and waste water handling were developed to promote oil-water separation and reduce oil discharge to sea. The design and operating criteria can be applied to existing oil tankers and to new tankers.
