Do not stow in the same hold

nor in any hold above, below or adjacent to one in which sulfur in bulk is stowed. Use minimum of combustible

dunnage. (See 146.22-30

(f).) Remove trash, scrap, and

spilled material promptly. Bags must be stowed so as to

provide maximum ventilation and access for water in the event of fire. (See $ 146.22–30 (f).) Hose lines must be connected,

laid out and tested before
loading or unloading opera-

tions commence.
Smoking, except in designated

areas, the use of open lights,
welding or burning, or other
ignition sources in the hold,

be strictly prohibited.
A fire watch shall be provided

by the master and stationed
in the hold from which the
material is being loaded or

unloaded.
The master or person in charge

of loading or unloading the
vessel shall ensure that the
operation is supervised at all
times and that all precau-

tions are observed. Containers shall be marked

The mixtures consist of approxi.

mately 60% by weight of am. monium nitrate and 40% of phosphate salts, mainly dicalcium phosphate. Other ammonium nitrate phos.

phate formulations, which when tested show hazards similar to those demonstrated by the ammonium nitrate phosphate mixtures, are also included in this group. Under conditions of exposure to temperatures above 400° F., rapid decomposition and ignition may occur. If the gas. eous products of reaction can. not escape freely, pressure and temperature will rise, and explosive decomposition may

occur. Do not accept for shipment if

the temperature of the bag,

ged material exceeds 130° F. Do not stow in the same hold,

nor in any hold above or
below one in which explo-
sives are stowed. The en-
gine and boiler spaces or
one complete hold shall in.
tervene between stowages,
