Hi All,


I am carrying out blow-off hatch calculation for an atmospheric storage tank.


The material stored in the tank is a dye used for colouring Gasoil. The dye is flammable


I do not have the latent heat value for the same. I had asked the vendor to provide the same, but even they do not have it.


What latent heat value should I consider to proceed with my calculation.


Thanking you in advance for your response.

Is it a pure component or a mixture?  If it has a solvent that is a major component, maybe the properties of the solvent can be used.
