Title Development of a compatibility guide for the water transport of bulk chemical cargoes.
Bibliographic information Mar. 1977, Vol.1, No.4, p.331-342. 7 ref.
Abstract A guide was developed for storing chemicals in adjacent tanks with minimum risk of dangerous reactions in case of wall rupture or accident. Experiments were used to determine whether exothermic reactions occurred, the maximum temperature rise and if a gas was a reaction product. 335 chemicals were classified into groups and matrixes were constructed to show compatibility of the groups.
