I am working on an API 2000 fire relief analysis for a methanol tank. If a fire occurred outside the tank, the heat would travel through the tank wall and transfer into the liquid methane inside the tank, eventually causing the methanol to boil. I need to know if methanol vapor would vent or if the methanol would break down into CO2 and H2O and CO2 and steam would vent.
