According to Solas and IMO regulations, it is obligated to equip the pipes in the engine room of your boat with an Anti-Splashing tape. This because of the possible spray that can occur when the engine installation malfunctions. To protect you, your personnel, the surrounding equipment and the interior of the engine room. It is highly recommended to install the best Anti-Splashing tape on the market. T-ISS Spray Stop Anti-Splashing Tape is the most certified Anti-Splashing tape available.
The Solas regulation describes this subject in paragraph 18.104.22.168; As far as practicable, oil fuel lines shall be arranged far apart from hot surfaces, electrical installations or other sources of ignition and shall be screened or otherwise suitably protected to avoid oil spray or oil leakage onto the sources of ignition. The number of joints in such piping systems shall be kept to a minimum.
