API 650 13th Edition Updates?

API 650 13th Edition Updates?

API 650 13th Edition Updates?

I see that 650 has been updated to the 13th edition. I cant seem to find a summary of changes (on API website or some company's powerpoint on google) like is pretty prevalent for ASCE 7-10 to 7-16. Curious is the changes are relevant to the sections I primarily reference (5.12, E).

RE: API 650 13th Edition Updates?

I've got one ordered, haven't seen it yet, though.
I would expect various changes all through it.

RE: API 650 13th Edition Updates?

On API website quote 'A webinar will take place on April 20, 2020, to explore the standard and highlight key updates in the latest edition'

RE: API 650 13th Edition Updates?

Awesome, thanks for the heads up! Registered.

RE: API 650 13th Edition Updates?

Thumbing through it, it looks very much like the previous edition- I don't see any major new sections or anything. I'll have to look closer at some of the details as I have time.

RE: API 650 13th Edition Updates?

JStephen - are there vertical bars and numbers indicating changes?

RE: API 650 13th Edition Updates?

All I see is round dots beside certain paragraphs, and I assume that represents changes, but haven't seen where that's spelled out, either.

RE: API 650 13th Edition Updates?

I think the dots represent places where tank purchasers are supposed to make choices on the Tank Data Sheet. See the Note under section 1.1.2
