Oil/waste separation is desirable on board all ships, including tankers, in order that the oily discharges may be reduced. To this end, available principles for separator design were evaluated and a promising process identified for further development. In this development, a packed bed for polypropylene chips was found to be able to produce an effluent containing less than 10 mg/1 of oil in water. Naphtha rising was proposed for bed regeneration. On the basis of these results, a design was prepared for a shipboard oily water separator for the treatment of an effluent containing 1 ton/hour of oily waste to produce an effluent containing less than 15 mg/1 of oil in water.
