Vapor Density Vapor density is the weight of a volume of pure vapor or gas compared to weight of an equal volume of dry air at the same temperature and pressure (NFPA). BULKSHIPMENTS Flammable Gas Uninsulated tanks containing flammable gas have been involved in the majority of accidents or fires that have caused loss of life or large property loss. Fire will occur from gas escaping from tanks either in the course of the accident or immediately after. The only condition under which any attempt to extinguish such a fire should be made is if the flow of fuel can be stopped.

See OSHA Confined Space Entry Procedure, 29 CFR-1910. When using cutting torches, care must be exercised to avoid contact with leakage or ground saturated with even such materials as lubricating oils, asphalts, other petroleum products, vegetable oils, and animal fats. They can be ignited and may burn fiercely. Move to safety the least damaged vehicles. Avoid sudden shocks or jars that might produce sparks or friction. No unnecessary attempt should be made to move a damaged tank from which flammable liquid is leaking.

6. Locate all leaks and stop them if possible. Nonmetallic plugs are useful for this purpose. 7. Wrecking operations or transfer of contents of tanks of flammable liquid should not be attempted until all vapors are dispersed. Cutting torches must not be used on tanks either empty or loaded. Certain liquids that do not have a flash point do have explosive limits in vapor/air mixtures. Life has been lost! Many liquids regarded as safe under ordinary conditions and transported as combustible or nonregulated materials should be treated as dangerous in an accident.
