Abstract
A method and its related technology are presented for decontaminating the bilge water removed from Marine Corps Expeditionary Fighting Vehicles (EFVs). The proposed process is based on the utilization of a unique proprietary regenerative filtration technology incorporating easy cleaning by Back-Flush that, together with in-line inertial separation device, allows all bilge water to be decontaminated at the same time the bilge water is being pumped out of the EFV. The proposed system will be fully regenerable and transportable. There will be no need to periodically replace filter media and it will not use any large and/or ground mounted water tanks. The main objective of the proposed effort will be to design a combined system for the decontamination of hazardous waste water of the EFVs bilges and to demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of its critical elements. The Milow system will be designed to comply with the USMC requirements and within the proper EPA parameters regarding the purity of the treated water that are discharged from it. The final Phase I report will include evaluation of all the test results, trade-off analysis for candidate design variants, recommendation of preferred option and a summary of the work completed under this program.
