Pump Room Ventilation

  1. Cargo pump room need to be mechanically ventilated and discharges from the exhaust fans must lead to a safe place on the open deck.
  2. The ventilation of the pump rooms must have sufficient capacity to minimise the possibility of accumulation of flammable vapour.
  3. The number of changes of air must be at least 24 hour. For this assessment the gross volume of the space of the pump room will need to be considered.
  4. The ventilation must be of the suction type, using fans of the non - sparking type.
  5. The air ducts must be arranged in a manner that will ensure that the entire space is effectively ventilated
