  • Many storage tanks currently in use in the chemical and related industries are designated as “atmospheric” storage vessels. Experience with the design of pressure relief systems on such vessels has shown that the design and basis of safety for pressure relief of atmospheric tanks is often misunderstood leading to situations where the tank may be subjected to pressures outside of the design limitations. This paper provides a summary of the design requirements for low-pressure storage tanks… CONTINUE READING
