The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
NOTE 1—Special design consideration should be given to vessels subject to superimposed mechanical forces, such as earthquakes, wind load, or agitation, to vessels subject to service temperature in excess of 180°F (82°C), and to vessels with unsupported bottoms.
NOTE 2—There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 11, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
