Transportable Moisture Limit

Liquefaction risk and cargo instability

Transportable Moisture Limit – this is the maximum moisture content of a cargo that is considered safe for transportation in ships. It is calculated as 90 per cent of the Flow Moisture Point (FMP). If the cargo is assessed as having higher moisture content, it is strongly recommended that the cargo should not be transported unless the vessel is specially built or fitted.

The decision on whether or not to load and transport a cargo is always ultimately that of the ship’s master and the port authorities, who may be guided by the results of FMP testing.

Bureau Veritas is at the forefront of sampling and mechanical testing including the flow table and penetration tests. We have testing capabilities in Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australia with facilities being developed in Africa.
