6.4 Contamination of cargoes by water

 All lubricating oils and jet fuels are acutely water-critical. Current practice requires full line draining and mopping up of any water in tanks before loading. Water contamination may occur on inerted ships due to:

  • .1 water carry-over from the scrubber and/or deck water seals due to inadequacies in design or maintenance of the various drying arrangements, and

  • .2 condensation of water from warm, fully saturated flue gas delivered to the tanks.
