Explosions that occurred in three very large crude tankers in December, 1969, called attention to a probable electrostatic problem related to washing operations in the large tanks. The Destator is a system designed to sense a charge in a tank being cleaned and to control the magnitude of that charge. The report is an evaluation of those tests. Conclusions and comments are given.
