Preliminary tests with binary mixtures of 4 percent by volume waste waters and successive mixing of chemicals to about 4 percent by volume concentration of each, indicated that dangerous reactions would not take place within separate groups of chemicals. With a laboratory testing method intended to simulate the operational procedure for chemical tankers, the reactivity of about 70 binary mixtures of diluted cargo remains from chemicals of the pollution categories B and C were investigated. Binaries known to be dangerously reactive as pure substances were selected for testing. The results indicate that diluted cargo remains from most of the chemical cargoes of the pollution categories B and C can be mixed together in the same slop tank, provided the slop tank has devices for the releasing of rapidly developing pressures and for the control of the temperature which should not be allowed to rise to the boiling point of the slop.
