Standard Practice for Calibrating Oil Spill Dispersant Application Equipment Boom and Nozzle Systems
|Publication Date:||1 October 2018|
|ICS Code (Lubrication systems):||21.260|
This practice covers uniform procedures for determining and reporting the dosage rate of oil spill dispersant application equipment.
This practice is applicable to spray systems employing booms and nozzles and is not fully applicable to other systems such as fire monitors, sonic distributors, or fan-spray guns.
This practice is applicable to systems for use on ships, boats, helicopters, or airplanes.
This practice is one of four related to dispersant application systems using booms and nozzles. One is on design, one on calibration, one on deposition, and one on the use of the systems. Familiarity with all four standards is recommended.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee
