Description / Abstract:


This standard covers low pressure, aboveground, vertical, and cylindrical tank systems storing liquefied gases requiring refrigeration. This standard provides general requirements on responsibilities, selection of storage concept, performance criteria, accessories/appurtenances, quality assurance, insulation, and commissioning of tank systems.

Additional information and recommendations are given in annexes. These general requirements address issues common to all of these tank systems, issues involving coordination of the components of the tank system, and issues of the tank system acting in an integrated way. The detailed requirements applicable to the metallic and concrete containers respectively are contained in the standards named in 1.4 and 1.5. 

The annexes of this standard provide additional information that may be used in the selection and design of refrigerated tank systems. See Table 1.1 for the status of each Annex
