Title Validation of Filtration Skid During Land-Based & Shipboard Tests.
Publication Date Oct 2012
Media Count 6p
Personal Author C. Turner P. Herring
Abstract This letter report summarizes the development and validation of a system that can sample large volumes of water from a ship's ballast system during intake and discharge evolutions, and then return the filtered water to the ballast discharge line. The RDC worked with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Key West, FL on this effort. NRL modified a preliminary design of a filter skid device that it had previously developed. A prototype unit was developed and deployed on the bulk carrier M/V Indiana Harbor, and commissioning tests of the skid were conducted in Spring 2012.
