Calculation and application of Burn Off

Burn off is defined as the amount of Fuel, Water, Stores that are consumed for a defined period of time for a particular vessel. • For example a vessel sails loaded from Brownsville, TX to Oakland, CA a transit time of 17 days. The Departure draft is 35’-00” arrival draft is 33’-04 inches. The TPI is found in the hydrostatic tables to be 109 tons what is the average daily burn off assuming the speed and weather conditions remain constant?

=2180 tons Divide the total tonnage by days enroute. Multiply ∆ Draft by TPI for tons consumed.00” .23 long tons per day. After a period of time an average burn off value for both light and loaded conditions can be obtained with a large degree of accuracy. 2180/17 =128. ∆ Draft = 35’. 20” x 109 lt/in. . This value can be used to pre-calculate drafts so as to comply with load line restrictions or draft/trim restrictions at a particular port.33’-04” = 1’ -08” or 20”.Calculation and application of Burn Off      Calculate the change in draft from arrival to departure.

Burn off is estimated to be 165 tons per day and your transit time to the canal is estimated to be 5 days. You are loading in Houston at a berth with a salinity of 1012.Sample Burn off Problem #1  Your vessels Summer draft is 36’-08” with a FWA of 10” and a TPI of 103. What should your sailing draft be upon completion of cargo in Houston . The MT1 value at this draft is 1150. You are to discharge in Long Beach after transiting the Panama Canal where your draft is limited to 34’-10” fresh water.

(10” FWA) Burn off is 165 tons per day x 5 days or 825 long tons which translates to 8” of draft.2” should be the mean draft upon completion of cargo. .Sample Burn off Problem    Maximum draft is 34’-10” fresh water or 34’-00” salt water.2 inches added to Salt water draft or 35’-01. Therefore you should be at 34’-08” Salt water upon completion of cargo in Houston. Applying FWA for the dock salinity of 1012 or 13/25 x 10” = 5.

.02”.Sample Burn off Problem # 2  Another example of burn off calculations applies when your vessel crosses a load line boundary. Your WNA marks are 35’. Using the same vessel as before what should the final draft be if you are enroute to the Keil Canal and will cross from Summer to WNA after 8 days at sea.

8 inches.Sample Burn off Problem # 2    35-02 Salt water draft for WNA. burn off is 8 days x 165 tons per day/ 103 (TPI) = 12.2” = 36’-08” upon completion of cargo in Houston . Allowing for a salinity of 1012 and FWA of 10” the vessel can load to 13/25 x 10”=5.2” 36’-03”+5. 35-02 + 13” for burn off = 36’-03” Saltwater upon completion of loading in Houston.
