5.13 Re-inerting after tank entry

  5.13.1 When all personnel have left the tank and the equipment has been removed, the inert gas branch line blank, if fitted, should be removed, the hatch lids closed and the gas pressure regulating valve re-opened and locked open to the inert gas main where appropriate. This will avoid any risk of structural damage when liquids are subsequently handled.

  5.13.2 As soon as a gas-free tank is reconnected to the inert gas main it should be re-inerted (as described in 5.1) to prevent transfer of air to other tanks.
