Abstract:

Small scale studies were conducted to demonstrate process feasibility under unique shipboard conditions and to develop design data for a Navy shipboard waste treatment system. The activated sludgeultrafiltration process showed remarkable stability under a variety of adverse operating conditions. Effluent characteristics were of a high quality BOD less than 10 mg , SS zero, and coliform generally zero. The laboratory data was employed in the preliminary design of the Phase II system. The minimum volume configuration for a 200-man unit will occupy 380 cubic feet. It will be totally self contained, independent of any land-based installations, and is expected to meet all operational requirements. Author
