Abstract : Tests were recently conducted at the San Diego Naval Station to determine the best procedures and equipment the Navy can use to transfer waste from a ship's holding tank to pier waste-handling facilities. Procedures tested included loading, transporting, connecting, disconnecting, unloading, cleaning, and storing hose for a sewage-handling system. Equipment tested during the program included four types of transport vehicles, plastic and rubber hoses, metal and plastic hose caps and plugs, two powered reels, two types of storage and loading racks, a hose cleaning rack, a hose cleaning apron, and two types of hose supports. Two systems, one for high ships turnover ports and one for low ship turnover ports, were selected as most applicable for sewage transfer operations. Criteria for determining manpower requirements and the numbers of equipment needed for a system are outlined. (Author)
