In principle, chemical tankers can be cleaned by evaporation of the product residue. However, for most products ventilation times are excessively long if usual ventilation procedures are followed. On theoretical basis a formula for estimating required ventilation times is derived that has shown satisfactory agreement with a full scale test, in which 0,20 cum of pentane residue was removed by ventilation.
