1.1 This guide covers considerations for the maintenance, storage, and use of oil spill dispersant application systems.
1.2 This guide is applicable to spray systems employing booms and nozzles and not to other systems such as fire monitors or single-point spray systems.
1.3 This guide is applicable to systems employed on ships or boats and helicopters or airplanes.
1.4 This guide is applicable to temperate weather conditions and may not be applicable to freezing conditions.
1.5 This guide is one of five related to dispersant application systems. Guide F1413/F1413M covers design, Practice F1460/F1460M covers calibration, Test Method F1738 covers deposition, Guide F1737 covers the use of the systems, and Guide F2465/F2465M covers the design and specification for single-point spray systems. Familiarity with all five standards is recommended.
1.6 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.7 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.8 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
