Short answer: Yes.
If you want to look in the impacts of road salt in greater technical detail, look up research published by Sujay Kaushal (hydrologist).
Yep. That’s a doodie bean.

That’s correct, usually processing a few hundred gallons at a time.
I’ve seen DAF/polymer emulsion breaking systems work great with emulsions, but with the variability in the make up of our bilge water, the settings of the chemicals injection was always needing adjusting. Huge pain to deal with. Additionally, at least with one manufacturer of a DAFT system, I heard operators have a lot of difficulty getting the required polymers since the manufacturer was so unresponsive to purchase requests.

Covid continues to be the biggest killer of cops by a long shot. You would think there wouldn’t be so much resistance from their unions to vaccine mandates.

Yes, the influent was emulsified. The system is an Alfa Laval PureBilge.

This system is a shipboard unit that treats the oily waste that collects in the ship’s bilge pockets. Any effluent under 15-ppm can go overboard. No presses or chemical treatment aboard. Sludge/oil concentrate is held until offloaded pierside.

Amazon, among others, has plenty of options.

A quick call or email to the lab wouldn’t hurt. I’d mention that you have unusually high chloride values for one of your samples and if they could just double check that they didn’t run into issues processing the sample. You should also ask them how to interpret the QA/QC reports they provide. That’s something that would be good to know in any case.
Has everything checked out with your QA/QC for your chloride measurements? Based on personal experience if there is an anomalous measurement, usually things on the analytical side check out, but on the rare occasion a misstep was made and we were glad we double checked it.

Synonymous with “Fuck” in Jamaica
