AN INTERIM REPORT OF THE CARGO DISCHARGE AND TANK CLEANING EXPERIMENTS CARRIED OUT ON THE CHEMICAL TANKER MV ANCO ENDEAVOUR NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 1978

Experiments were conducted on residue assessment, purging, washing, and venting on the Amco Endeavour. A report was prepared to help the IMCO Sub-Committee on Bulk Chemcials finalize the Standards for Procedures and Arrangements for the discharge of noxious liquid substances. The report shows the use of a calibration method of residue assessment, the efficiency of pipeline purging procedures, that efficient cargo stripping can simplify slops discharge procedures, and that cleaning by ventilation can be a rapid process in some circumstances.
