Abstract : Hose and hose connector components that are applicable for use in ship-to-shore sewage transfer operations are identified, and the results of field and laboratory tests are presented. Hose clamping and mounting procedures are evaluated and hose/connector system tensile strengths are established. An experimental plastic hose, an experimental rubber hose, quick-disconnect bronze connectors and a 3/4-inch wide band-type clamping material were found to be the best-suited materials of those tested for waste transfer operations.
