Standard Specification for Sewage and Graywater Flow Through Treatment Systems
|Publication Date:||1 May 2012|
This specification covers the design, manufacture, performance, operation, and testing of flow through treatment systems intended to process sewage or graywater, or both, generated during a ship's normal service. This specification is intended for use by designers, manufacturers, purchasers, and operators of shipboard environmental pollution control equipment to determine the requirements for equipment design, manufacture, purchase, and in-service operation.
The treatment system shall be capable of meeting the effluent requirements detailed in Section 4 with respect to a ship's operational area.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
