COST EFFECTIVENESS STUDY OF WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR SELECTED U.S. COAST GUARD VESSELS. VOLUME V. CHARACTERISTICS AND COST ESTIMATES OF SELECTED MARINE SANITARY DEVICES

A full characterization is presented of five Marine Sanitary Devices (MSDs) which were hybridized to form the subsystems of 18 candidate Wastewater Management System (WMS) concepts considered in this study. The five MSDs considered are: Jered Sewage Disposal System, GATX Evaporative Toilet System, Chrysler 'Aquaor-Sans' Recirculating Oil System, Grumman Flow Through System, and a Collection, Holding, Transfer (CHT) System. All of the generic MSD data required for the development of the 18 candidate WMS configurations as a function of vessel, the effectiveness assessment of each viable candidate system/vessel combination, and the development of life-cycle cost estimates for each viable candidate system/vessel combination have been developed. All MSD data are presented on an MSD subsystem level (and within subsystem by different available model type or equipment capacity), corresponding to the manner in which the MSDs were hybridized to form the candidate WMS configurations. The MSD data presented include the following: system description and physical characteristics; MSD related effectiveness attribute data which include the following characteristics: Adaptability for Shipboard Installation, Performance, Operability, Personnel, Safety, Habitability, Reliability, and Maintainability; acquisition costs, operating/maintenance characteristics and cost estimates including the following: operation, preventive maintenance, corrective maintenance, and overhaul.
