Flashcards in DRY CARGO TEST Deck (28):
1

If the dew point of the outside air was higher than the dew point of the air inside the cargo hold, would you ventilate the hold with the outside air?

NO

2

As the married fall angle increase above 120 degrees, the stress on each fall goes above the weight being suspended.

True

3

Cargo damage always decreases when using forced ventilation instead of natural ventilation.

True

4

Forklifts are the mostly widely used piece of handling equipment.

True

5

Proper ventilation will reduce corrosion.

True

6

"Improved Plow Steel" is 35 percent stronger than Plow Steel in reference to cargo gear.

False

7

A married fall angle below 120 degrees increases the stress on each fall.

False

8

Rice is considered a non-hygroscopic cargo.

False

9

Midship guys are continually under more stress than outboard guys.

False

10

A "Heel block" is used to raise the boom.

True

11

When referring to dry bulk cargoes the term "flow state" ______________________.

Refers to the saturation of a dry bulk product with water to the point where it acts as a liquid

12

How should you signal the crane operator to lower the runner?

with arm extended downward and the forefinger pointing down, move hand in small circular motion.

13

On a vessel proceeding from a very cold to warm climate with a cargo of a non-hygroscopic nature which is True?

There is no danger of a heavy cargo sweat if outside air is introduced by ventilation

14

When the dewpoint of the outside air is higher than the dewpoint of the air in the cargo hold, you should?

Not ventilate the cargo hold

15

Dewpoint is defined as?

The temperature at which, when air is cooled , condensation will occur.

16

What is/are the advantages of cranes over conventional cargo booms?

All the above,
simplicity, safety, working area

17

Can a center-line crane ever be operated in tandem?

No

18

A schooner guy is the same as a.

Midships Guy

19

Ventilation will not help to prevent cargo damage caused by:

Contamination

20

Most pedestal crane power is produced by?

Electro-hydraulic units

21

On a Jumbo boom the wire that puts up the load is called a:

purchase

22

Shrouds and stays are part of the?

Standing rigging

23

What is meant by the term "luffing the boom" of a crane?

Topping or lowering the boom

24

Your vessel is going from a warm climate to a cold climate with a non-hyrgroscopic cargo. Which statement is true?

You should ventilate, there is little danger of ship sweat but a possibility of cargo sweat

25

What is not an example pf sweat damage?

Tainting

26

The maximum amount of water vapor the air can hold at a given temperature is called:

Saturation

27

Which of the following can be used to determine Dewpoint?

All the above,
dry/wet bulb, dewpoint chart, psychrometer

28

The purpose of ventilating a cargo hold is:

to prevent damage to cargo from the condensation of moisture in the holds
