LPG tanks standard

LPG tanks standard

LPG tanks standard

Can someone please tell me which is the API standard for the design of LPG tanks?

RE: LPG tanks standard

Could this be what you want?
API Std 2510 Design and Construction of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Installations (LPG)

Another reference you may want is
API Publ 2510A Fire Protection Considerations for the Design and Operation of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Storage Facilities

Go to the API website
look for Publications under the Energy Professional Site
there you can download an API publications catalog.  You can also purchase the publications online if you like.

RE: LPG tanks standard

Poseilus:  You want quick and dirty?  Call several "previously owned" equipment vendors and ask what they have.  Or, call a big new vessel manufacturer and ask for the size of several recently built tanks.

RE: LPG tanks standard


What are you asking ??.....Are you asking about LPG tanks or the tank facility ??

Design Requirements and other information about LPG tanks can be found in NFPA-58.....Tanks for USA service are to be certified ASME Section VIII Pressure vessels.
