||3rd Quarter 1991, Vol.27, No.3, p.18-24. Illus. 6 ref.
||The results of two full scale fire engulfment tests on a 3.6m3-Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) tank protected with a sublimation coating (THERMO-LAG 440) and on a 4.85m3-LPG tank protected with an intumescent coating (CHARTEK III) are presented. The tests have demonstrated a sufficient vessel safety during 90 minutes of full fire engulfment. Additional furnace tests on CHARTEK III-coated steel plates have been carried out to optimise the necessary coating thickness.
