The purpose of this document is to provide explanation of how insulation flanges provide protection against ignition caused by arcing. Unfortunately, much of the research that was undertaken to prove the benefit of insulation flanges has been lost over the last 30 or 40 years, and much of what is left is simply a reference to either ‘ISGOT’ (Reference 6) or to IMO publication ‘Recommendations on the Safe Transport of Dangerous Cargoes and Related Activities in Port Areas’ (Reference 10), which requires their use. Even a literature search of IMO archives, which shows support for the use of insulation flanges as far back as 1977, does not have any reference to the research that was undertaken in their favour. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate their effectiveness, in support of ISGOTT and the IMO recommendations.

The purpose of this document is to provide explanation of how insulation flanges provide protection against ignition caused by arcing.

The purpose of SIGTTO is to promote shipping and terminal operations for liquefied gases which are safe, environmentally responsible and reliable. To fulfil this mission it will:

  • Proactively develop best operating practices and guideline

  • Sustain a learning environment by sharing lessons learned

  • Promote training and development of all within the industry

  • Foster mutually beneficial relationships with regulatory authorities and other stakeholders

  • Conduct its business with professionalism and integrity
