Examples of incidents that were brought to the attention of SIGTTO include: • In 1987, a member of the working group visited a small pressurised LPG carrier in the Far East. While there he had to persuade the ship’s Chief Engineer, dressed in shorts, against decanting odourant from a drum and injecting it into the cargo tank using a semi-rotary pump and plastic hose. • In 1997, a ship owning member of the Society was asked to carry out cargo odourisation using ethyl mercaptan that was supplied by the receiver in 40 gallon (209 litre) drums. The discharge port was in the tropics. After a short time, the drums started to bulge due to the high ambient temperature. The ship’s staff cooled down the drums by using a cool water spray, preventing them from rupturing. • In 1998, the Master of an LPG carrier was asked for permission for terminal staff to board the ship and odourise the cargo during discharge. A senior manager was concerned about the equipment that was to be used and vetoed the operation. The cargo was discharged unodourised.

If you live in a remote area, a ‘remote area surcharge’ may be applicable when booking your order on with a courier service for dispatch. A remote area surcharge is an additional fee that is added by a courier service for delivery to a remote location. We will always contact you about this should it ever happen, as it is not a fee that applies during the checkout phase of the online ordering process, but you will be expected to pay it should you wish to receive your order.

If any items are temporarily out of stock, we will endeavour to dispatch the complete order within 7 working days. We always endeavour to ship complete orders and try our best not to ship part orders as a general rule, but on occasion this rule may have grounds for it to be broken due to the varying nature of orders received. We will always try our best to communicate the status of your order should any issue arise that we feel you need to be made aware of.
