Standard Specification for Shipboard Incinerators
|Publication Date:||10 March 2001|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to shipbuilding and marine structures):||47.020.99|
1.1 This specification covers the design, manufacture, performance, operation, functioning, and testing of incinerators intended to incinerate garbage and other shipboard wastes generated during the ship's normal service (that is, maintenance, operational, domestic, and cargo-associated wastes).
1.2 This specification is a companion document to Guide F1322.
1.3 This specification applies to those incinerator plants with capacities up to 1500 kW per unit.
1.4 Additional information is given in Appendix X1 - Appendix X9.
1.5 This specification does not apply to systems on special incinerator ships, for example, for burning industrial wastes such as chemicals, manufacturing residues, etc.
1.6 This specification does not address the electrical supply to the unit, nor the foundation connections and stack connections.
1.7 This specification does not cover emissions requirements.
1.8 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 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. If an incinerator is to be operated in littoral regions, the strictest governing regulations for those countries in which the incinerator may operate would form the requirement basis. See 5.11.
