Abstract:

Phase II prototype evaluation of the Mobile Cleaning Reclaim and Recovery (MCRRS) concept culminates the project goal of developing an effective deck cleaning vehicle for operation aboard aircraft carriers. The innovation and the enabling technology forthe vehicle is a cyclone based integrated wash water recycle system. The recycle system is instrumental in the vehicle's meeting a 10,000 ft2/ hr cleaning rate requirement while using very little water for cleaning and producing a very low environmentaldisposal footprint. Phase I work established the feasibility for this technology and a general prototype description was formulated for phase II implementation. Phase II analysis of this technology integrated into a carrier-centric form factor will allowfull examination of the concept in a realistic operations environment aboard aircraft carriers. Efficiency measurements will be performed based on oil-water separation and solids-water separation. The results will be compared with effluent discharge andvehicle performance requirements. The recycle system along with the rest of the vehicle will be evaluated using actual conditions of service. Analysis results and refined manufacturing data form Phase II work will be a solid foundation for Phase IIIcommercialization of the technology. Upon implementation of this technology the Navy will realize readiness, safety and cost benefits. These benefits include elimination of shipboard soap use for Scrubex, Corrosion reduction by means of eliminated saltwater spray down, Man-hour reduction by dramatically improving cleaning efficiency and cleaning rate, and improved readiness due to a maintaining non-skid cleaning cycle rather than longer period
