Where:
tr is the maximum mean bulk temperature during transport,
tf is the temperature in degrees celsius of the liquid during filling, and α is the mean coefficient of cubical expansion of the liquid between the mean temperature of the liquid during filling (t) and the maximum mean bulk temperature during transportation (tr) both in degrees celsius.

Segregation and Separation Chart for Load, Transport, Storage

In this table a statement is contained for each hazard class whether the loading, transport or storage with other hazard classes is allowed, is not permitted or is restricted. The table is based on U.S.-Code 49 CFR § 177.848.

Note: The HMR prohibit only those Division 6.1 liquids that meet the definition of a Packing Group (PG) I and Hazard Zone A. See special provision 1 and PHMSA Interpretation #09-0252.

Packages with POISON or POISON INHALATION HAZARD labels, or a POISON label displaying “PG III,” or “PG III” marked next to a POISON label may not be transported with foodstuffs, feed or any other edible material, intended for humans or animals. For exceptions see 49 CFR §177.841(e).

There are no restrictions with hazardous materials, as pointed out in the instructions for using the Segregation Table (see 49 CFR §177.848(e)). But please, refer also to following requirements in 49 CFR §177 Subpart B (Loading and Unloading):
  • §177.834 - General requirements
  • §177.835 - Class 1 materials.
  • §177.837 - Class 3 materials.
  • §177.838 - Class 4 (flammable solid) materials, Class 5 (oxidizing) materials, and Division 4.2 (pyroforic liquid) materials.
  • §177.839 - Class 8 (corrosive) materials.
  • §177.840 - Class 2 (gases) materials.
  • §177.841 - Division 6.1 and Division 2.3 materials.
  • §177.842 - Class 7 (radioactive) material.
  • §177.843 - Contamination of vehicles.
