An introduction to the Inert Gas system and the methods of operation.
Due to the volatile nature of many of the cargoes carried on board tankers, there is a need to reduce the likelihood of fire by some means. The most effective way of doing this in cargo tanks is by reducing the atmospheric oxygen content within the tank to less than is required to support combustion. This is achieved by inerting the tanks.
The course will cover the legislation surrounding Inert Gas use as well as the components of the system. The learner will then explore the uses of the Inert Gas system in cargo operations.
