DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED CAPABILITY FOR TESTING SHIPBOARD OIL CONTENT METERS

This presentation is concerned with one of the National Maritime Research Center's programs - the abatement of pollution from ship oily waste discharges. The objective of the program was to identify the nature and degree of the problem, then direct test and evaluation activities towards systems designed by industry to solve the problem. The technical approach to meeting the program objective was as follows. Review regulations to determine the regulatory requirements for ship oily waste discharges. Review shipboard practices to determine if existing and near future regulatory requirements were attainable from current practices or may be attained by revising current practies. Survey existing oily waste control hardware and instrumentation to determine their applicability/feasibility to ship oil waste discharges. Establish performance requirements for ship oily waste control hardware and instrumentation. Determine the effectiveness of testing programs for certifying ship oily waste control hardware and instrumentation. Establish concept testing capability for ship oily waste control hardware and instrumentation.
