HAZARDS INVOLVED IN TRANSPORTATION OF LIQUID SULFUR SULFUR GASES AND THEIR CONTROL
Sulfur as an element has been used for centuries, but the technique of storing, handling and transporting it in a liquid form is comparatively new. The main problem in storing, handling and transporting liquid sulfur is the possible generation and release of gases. These gases are the major subject of discussion. The paper covers in considerable detail the characteristics, gas hazards, instrumentation aboard ship and at terminals, air ventilation of the vapor space above the liquid and air bubbling to reduce gas concentation.
