||16-mm colour film with magnetic or optical sound, 30 min, 1974. Binnenschiffahrts-Berufsgenossenschaft, K÷nig-Friedrich-Wilhelm-Strasse 4, 4100 Duisburg 13, Germany (Fed.Rep.). Price: DM.2,300.
||The extent of the transport of flammable liquids by inland waterways in the Fed.Rep. of Germany is demonstrated with the aid of figures (80 million tons per year, 1,000 tankers). Simple instructive experiments are used to explain the basic elements underlying the associated explosion hazard. An explosion hazard exists when a third factor, an ignition source, is added to the presence of air and gas. Safety arrangements on tankers and their effectiveness are dealt with, as are the safe practices designed to eliminate ignition sources in the transfer of flammable liquids.
