Incompatible Dangerous Goods

Seats with dangerous goods that could come into dangerous interaction with each other should not be placed next to each other on the aircraft or in a position that could lead to their interaction in the event of a leak.

In order to ensure acceptable safe distances between places with dangerous goods that are characterized by different types of danger, it is necessary to observe, at a minimum, the placement requirements specified in the table below. This procedure applies regardless of whether the class or category belongs to the primary or secondary hazard. Incompatible dangerous goods require horizontal separation.

Important. The vertical placement of incompatible dangerous goods is prohibited.

Separate placement of packages

Class or category 3 4.2 4.3 5.1 5.2 9

It is important . Incompatible dangerous goods and other dangerous goods must be placed at least 1 m apart.
Explosives of category 1.4 compatibility group S and 4.1 and Classes S 2, 6, 7 and 9 do not require separate placement from other goods.

(2) Both animal and dry ice should be placed in different racks.

Dry ice

Dry ice (ICE) should be transported as:

  • Dangerous goods (dry ice, as a shipment item);
  • Refrigerant for dangerous goods;
  • Refrigerant for general cargo.

Dry ice must be declared in the Shipper's Application for Dangerous Goods and in NOTOC.

If Dry ice is not declared by the Shipper in the application for the transport of dangerous goods, then the following information should be placed in the section "Character and amount of cargo" in the air waybill, and it must be declared in NOTOC; the packaging must be marked with the Dry Ice Mark, which indicates the net weight of dry ice.

Dry ice can be transported provided that the operator takes appropriate measures depending on the type of aircraft, the ventilation characteristics of the aircraft, the method of packaging and placement, and whether animals or breeds will be transported on the same flight. egg.

Magnetized material

Magnetized materials should not be loaded in a position where they have a significant effect on aligned magnetic compasses or on the sensitive elements of the main compass. The effect is considered significant if the magnetic field of the magnetized materials reaches 0.418 A / m in the place where the aircraft compasses or sensitive elements of the compass are located. When placed, the minimum distance from magnetized materials to aircraft compasses or sensitive compass elements is determined by the value of the field strength of magnetized materials, and it varies from 1.5 m.

Note Multiple packages can create a cumulative effect.
