The Naval Civil Engineering Lab tested a number of degreasers for use in
cleaning bilges and ship tanks, to minimize the quantity of oily wastewater
generated. Results were published as a technical note, the full citation
T. Torres (1991) Nonpersistent Emulsifying Degreaser Test Results. NCEL
Technical Note N-1824. Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory, Port Hueneme,
The report contains a listing of all the degreasers tested, and their
performance in the tests conducted. It can be obtained from the Naval
Civil Engineering Laboratory, Port Hueneme, CA 93043-5003.

Subject: soaps for oil/water separators
I am looking for a soap that would be compatible with an oil/water
separator. The soap will be used by an equipment rental company to clean
off their trucks, forklifts, backhoes, etc. They have installed a wash
with a below grade, gravity type oil water separator. I know that some
soaps emulsify oils and are therefore incompatible with oil/water
separators. I also know that other soaps are available that quickly
oil after cleaning, allowing the oil to float (separate) in the oil/water
What I am looking for is specific product information, ingredients, etc.
the "quick-release" type soaps.
It is possible that the business may choose to clean using only water, but
would like to offer them other solutions if they just HAVE to have a soap.
As always, any information you can send my way would be greatly
Thank you. -Tracy Wyhlidko
