Aluminium Phosphide Fumigation – Fires and Explosions

Year: 2020
Language: english
Author: West P and I Club
Genre: Periodical (magazine)
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 4
Description: As noted earlier, the presence of
free water in contact with aluminium
phosphide tablets will speed up the
reaction causing higher temperatures
and the production of more phosphine
gas, heightening the possibility of a
flammable atmosphere being formed
in the hold. The cargo surface must
therefore be kept dry, protected from
precipitation during loading and, it
should be considered that sweat may
form on the cargo or on hold steelwork
while the holds are sealed whilst
fumigation is in progress.
