RE: API 650 Tank , Anchor chair fouling with vertical shell weld

It is always good practice to detail all fittings where they don't fall on welds.

However, in API-650, there are specific weld-spacing requirements for welds in Group IV & higher tanks, but no such requirements for Group I-II. See Section 5.8.1. This is separate from the weld-spacing requirements for nozzles.

Move it or ignore it. Your choice.
