The report describes the test operations and results of measuring organochlorine waste flowrate and CO, CO2, and O2 in the effluent gas during incineration of industrial chemical waste onboard the M/T Vulcanus. The data was obtained during shipboard test burns in the North Sea during November and December 1978 and February 1979. Program objectives were to gather data on durability and accuracy of both the waste flowmeters and the CO, CO2, and O2 monitoring system when used on a continuous routine basis. Combustion efficiency exceeded 99.95 percent in all cases, meeting IMCO requirements of 99.95 + or - 0.05 percent. The ultrasonic and vortex waste flowmeters and the CO, CO2, and O2 monitoring system performed satisfactorily during the burns. The CO, CO2, and O2 equipment was operated continuously for a maximum of 12 hours. The vortex flowmeters indicated gradual waste buildup, although buildup did not occur in the ultrasonic flowmeter piping. Monthly inspection and cleaning of the vortex meters would avoid extensive solids buildup. Use of spare instruments ensured continuous acquisition of combustion data throughout the burns. Post-test inspection of the analyzers indicated only minor corrosion and wear.
