It might happen that a container fails a gas measurement due to an excessive amount of gas. In that event, the container needs to be degassed in a safe location. The location chosen for this process depends on many factors. In addition to the load, the type of gas and the manner of loading, temperature and wind speed are also important.

Degassing or ventilating?

There are two ways to degas: natural ventilation and mechanical ventilation. With natural ventilation the container doors are opened, which allows the gas to blow away. With mechanical ventilation the container is opened and a separate door is attached to the front. Ventilation units are connected to this door, which supply the container with clean air.
