    CDI Examines Liquid Hose Management

    Posted by Tanker Operator on 28th Apr 2021

    (Posted on 13/10/2014) The Chemical Distribution Institute (CDI) has produced ‘CDI Guidelines for Liquid Chemical Hose Management’, which has been published by Witherby Publishing Group. The CDI said that while the book’s main focus is on hoses used to transfer chemical products, the essential and frequently used range of service hoses for water, steam, air and nitrogen are also covered. This guide will form the required publication in the forthcoming eighth edition of CDI Ship Inspection Questionnaire for chemical and LPG carriers, due to be published in the first quarter of next year. Priced at £75, this 70-page illustrated hardback contains 10 chapters, which gives advice on risk management, inspecting, testing and maintenance, through to emergency response. This is the first edition of a no doubt long running series on hose management both ashore and afloat.
