ELECTRICAL FIELD STRENGTH IN CARGO TANK OF SEVEN TANKERS DURING OR AFTER TANK WASHING

This report reviews the results of electrostatic measurements during seven tanker voyages in an attempt to determine the isolated effect of several parameters on the measured field strength. The parameters influencing field strength included wash water pressure, water throughput, wash water temperature, chemicals in wash water, tank condition (Clean or dirty), tank size, geometry and internal construction, type of washing machine, and tank coating.
