Abstract : This report covers the test and evaluation of a Separation and Recovery Systems, Inc. (SRS), 50-gallon-per-minute (gpm) oil/water separation system to determine its suitability as a shipboard oil-pollution control device. This report concludes that: The SRS, 50-GPM oil/water separator should be considered a candidate for further detailed testing to confirm its suitability as a first-generation oil/water separation system for shipboard use. Rigid qualification tests and quality conformance or acceptance tests and procedures should be established and followed by the procuring activities to insure that only usable elements are accepted from the manufacturers for issue to the users. Additional effort by Government and industry is required to develop the analytical techniques and equipment vitally needed for the accurate, reliable detection and measurement of oil in water.
