|Th is standard describes the composition, performance
requirements, construction practices and workmanship, design, and
methods of testing thermosetting fiberglass-reinforced plastic
(FRP) tanks for the storage of water or other liquids used in water
Limit of standard. Th is standard is limited to
atmospheric pressure, vented, cylindrical, and spherical tanks,
installed either aboveground or underground.
Temperature limits. Th is standard is limited to tanks
whose service temperature does not exceed 180°F (82°C) for
aboveground tanks and 150°F (66°C) for underground tanks. Consult
the tank manufacturer for recommended temperature limits (both
minimum and maximum) for specific equipment and service
Service limits. The service limits for environmental
exposure and structural loads shall be determined based on tests of
laminates that are determined by the engineer to be representative
of the materials and methods of fabrication used in the tank.
The purpose of this standard is to provide purchasers,
manufacturers, and suppliers with the minimum requirements for
thermosetting FRP tanks, including material and design.
This standard can be referenced in specifications for purchasing
and receiving thermosetting FRP tanks. This standard can be used
for manufacturing this type of tank. The stipulations of this
standard apply when this document has been referenced, and then
only to FRP tanks.
