Abstract:

The results of a feasibility study for the burn-off of waste oils in Coast Guard power plants are presented. Among the factors considered in this evaluation were simplicity, cost, engine manufacturers recommendations, mixing ratios, engine emissions, and effects on engine performance. Combustion in diesel engine, boilers, and gas turbines was investigated. As a result of this study it is recommended that waste oil be treated by procedures outlined in this study, blended at a mix ratio of 1 or less waste oil to diesel fuel oil, and burned off in Coast Guard power plants.
