Generally, bunkers have a flashpoint of greater than 60 degree Celsius. It's quite comprehensible that in no way the ambient temperature of the bunker tanks are gonna go above 60 degree Celsius. If the bunker tanks cannot reach 60 degree Celsius, it cannot produce cargo vapours that are rich in hydrocarbons; thus no explosion can occur. And thus, inert gas is not being used in bunker tanks. Hope this has been helpful !
