Re: Operational procedure for portable cargo pump.
Dear Masters
One of our vessels had experienced burst damage of fexible hydraulic
hoselo! pressure hose" by mis#handling during test of portable cargo pump.
Also other vessels had experienced similar troubles during testing or
operating of portable cargo pump in the past. $n order to prevent such trouble%
!e provided and attached the procedure for portable cargo pump !hich
please &indly 'nd and educate cre! accordingly.

and so you are re7uired to read instruction boo& carefully !hich supplied by
As &ey points for operation of portable cargo pump%
8" 2hec& the designed speci'cation prior to use
2" 249 should attend and chec& the condition at the time of connection of
fexible hydraulic hose and running pump.
3" $t should be monitored and supervised by responsible o:cer throughout
the test and operation
3" )efore connection hose hydraulic hose and cargo hose" to portable cargo
pump% it should chec& inside of portable cargo pump if there are any
foreign materials or loosen bolt 5 nuts.
;" )efore connection of fexible hydraulic hosespressure hose and return
hose" to delivery line and return line% it should be chec&ed and con'rmed
!hich one is delivery line and return line in order avoid burst damage of
return hose
<" 2onnect return hose 'rst and then pressure hose in order to avoid
pressuri=ation in return hose
>" After connection fexible hydraulic hoses% it should be opened return line
valve 'rst in order to avoid burst damage of fexible hydraulic hose.
?" During operating portable cargo pump% it should be monitored pressure

@" Ahen vessel stops pumping% close high pressure valve a" 'rst and then
disconnect pressure hose. After that% close return valve b" and then
disconnect return hose.
2. Operational procedure & precaution

2. After completion test
8" 2lose high pressure valvea" 'rst and then disconnect high pressure

8" )efore using the pump% to be tested there is any lea&age and con'rm
the cleanness of cargo pump
2" 2onnect cargo hose of enough length reachable to cargo tan& bottom
3" *egarding operation 5 connection of fexible hydraulic hose% refer to
test of portable cargo pump
3" 2argo hose 5 fexible hydraulic hose to be tied up by clean rope made
by chemical resistant material
;" DonCt drop the pump to tan& bottom at a time. 0o drop step by step
according to cargo level
<" During operation% cargo should be chec&ed there is any oily material on
surface of cargo
>" 0he pump has to be handled by enough manpo!er not to be free fall
