The modern tankers carrying chemical products are deservedly considered maybe the most technologically advanced commercial ships. Their complexity is resulting from the broad range of cargoes that such vessels are designed and constructed to transport and also from the nature and technical characteristics of the cargo. The cargoes normally carried on board chemical tankers are treated as hazardous materials requiring very careful handling.
The mission of these vessels is to cargo liquid chemical products in bulk form all around the world while paying due attention to the protection of human life, property and the environment. In addition, crew shall take care on protecting the quality of the cargo. Moreover, the ship owners and operators shall be provided with the effective economic measures. Their design will allow chemical tankers to transport different cargoes that commonly range from inorganic acids and fish oil to petroleum products and specialty chemicals.
We may categorize the chemical cargoes in different ways. They may be grouped on the basis of their composition or based on their origin. As implied by the title, the present booklet is intended to provide the crew members of the chemical tankers as well as the students and trainees with some information related to cleaning the cargo tanks.
