However, the referenced entry is preferred.

(b) Cargo identification/pressure. This column identifies cargo in terms of pressure within the tank. Terms used are:

(1) Pressurized. Cargo carried at a pressure in excess of 10 pounds per square inch gauge as measured at the top of the tank (i.e., exclusive of static head).

(2) Atmospheric pressure. Cargo carried at not more than 10 pounds per square inch gauge, exclusive of static head.

(c) Cargo identification/temperature. This column identifies the cargo by the temperature of the cargo during transit.

(1) Ambient temperature. Cargo which is carried at naturally occurring temperatures.

(2) Low temperature. Cargo carried below ambient temperatures when the product temperature is below 0 °F.

(3) Elevated temperature. Cargo carried above ambient temperatures.

(d) Hull type. This column refers to the flotation features of the barge. Terms used are explained and defined in Subpart 151.10 of this part.

(e) Cargo segregation/tanks. This column refers to the separation of the cargo from its surroundings. Terms are explained in §151.13-5 and in footnotes to Table 151.05 of this part.

(f) Tanks/type. This column refers to the design requirements for cargo tanks and their placement within the hull of the vessel. Terms are explained in §151.15-1.

(g) Tanks/venting. This column refers to arrangements for preventing excess pressure or vacuum within the cargo tank. Terms used are explained and defined in §151.15-5.

(o) Electrical hazard class—group. This column lists the electrical hazard class and group used for the cargo when determining requirements for electrical equipment under subchapter J (Electrical engineering) of this chapter.

(p) Temperature control installations. This column refers to systems which are used to control the temperature of the cargo. Definitions and requirements which are applicable if such systems are used are given in Subpart 151.40 of this part.

(q) Tank inspection period. This column refers to the maximum period in years between internal cargo tank inspections. Applicable requirements are given in §151.04-5.
