6.3 Contamination of cargoes by inert gas

 For a well designed and operated flue gas system experience suggests that petroleum cargoes traditionally carried on product tankers do not suffer contamination from the flue gas itself, as opposed to contamination from other cargoes. However, unacceptable contamination from the flue gas may be encountered if proper control is not exercised over fuel quality, efficiency of combustion, scrubbing and filtering.

The more critical petrochemical cargoes which may be carried by product carriers can be contaminated by flue gas.
