Abstract
This study is aimed at determining the phenomena that affect the treatment of bilge water using membrane based oily water separators. The results of the study are presented here as two separate papers. One paper discusses the most problematic particle sizes in the treatment of bilge water by synthetic membrane technologies while the other discusses the effects of shear and settling on bilge water treatment by ultrafiltration. The report also contains a section on the use of ultrafiltration membranes in oily water separators that elucidates the effects of small particles of soot in the bilge water on membrane performance and showed that the permeation of water through the membrane was entirely cake/gel limited. The thickness or resistance of this cake/gel layer was influenced by the cake/gel limited. The thickness or resistance of this cake/gel layer was influenced by the quantity and size distribution of these soot particles in the influent stream. The work identifies the most effective membrane pore size to use in purifying bilge water which is contaminated with used diesel lubricating oil.
