Vanning Inspection

Vanning Survey

vanning certificate
Vanning Survey-Charcoal, briquette are substance obtained by partial burning or carbonization (destructive distillation) of organic material. It is largely pure carbon. The entry of air during the carbonization process is controlled so that the organic material does not turn to ash, as in a conventional fire, but decomposes to form charcoal. The characteristics of charcoal products (lump, briquette, or extruded forms) vary widely from product to product. Thus it is a common misconception to stereotype any kind of charcoal, saying which burns hotter, etc.

Charcoal is sometimes packed in bags, baskets, or made up into trusses. However, usually it is shipped in bulk. Very dusty and light cargo: protect fine cargo from dust when handling. Oak charcoal is fairly heavy. Beware coconut husks which may be shipped as charcoal. Not permitted for transport in bulk if class 4.2. If carried in bulk must be accompanied by a certificate from shipper stating cargo is not class 4.2 based on definitive test. Stow clear of all chlorates, and not over any cargo liable to be damaged by charcoal dust. This cargo absorbs moisture equal to about 18-20 per cent, of its weight.
