Transportable Moisture Limit

Bureau Veritas is at the forefront of sampling and testing for Transportable Moisture Limit (TML) by all current IMSBC methods as well as other TML tests that are specifically approved by the competent authorities at the port of loading. We have testing capabilities in global strategic locations.

TML is the maximum moisture content of a cargo that is considered safe for transportation in ships. If the cargo is assessed as having higher actual moisture content than its TML, then IMSBC Code does not allow that the cargo should be loaded and transported by sea unless the vessel is specially built or fitted for confining cargo shift.

Bureau Veritas performs the three main IMSBC tests for TML:

  • Flow Table Test

  • Penetration Test

  • Proctor/Fagerberg Test
