Historical (view previous versions of standard)
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). An operating test method for the prototype of each design shall be conducted, with a test report completed indicating results of all test methods. The test methods shall be conducted to ensure that all of the control components have been properly installed and that all parts of the incinerator, including controls and safety devices, are in satisfactory operating condition. For each unit, if preassembled, an operating test method shall be conducted to ensure that all of the control components have been properly installed and that all parts of the incinerator, including controls and safety devices, are in satisfactory operating condition. After installation, an operating test method shall be done to all control and safety devices such as flame safeguard, oil pressure limit control, air pressure limit control, other interlocks, combustion control, programming controls, fuel supply controls, and switches.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
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 F 1322
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, and so forth.
1.6 This specification does not address the electrical supply to the unit nor the foundation connections and stack connections.
1.7 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.
