This Part of BS 799 specifies requirements for tanks for the storage of liquid fuel, used in conjunction with oil burning equipment, and covers:

a) integral tanks which form a part of a complete oil fired unit

b) service tanks

c) storage tanks with a maximum height of 10 m.

The maximum capacities of the various types of tank are specified.

This British Standard is applicable to tanks constructed of plain carbon steel.

Changes from the previous edition of the standard are that upper limits on tank volumes have been included, certain design heads and plate thicknesses have been altered for tank types A to L and the tanks to the previous type H are now included with type E.

These tanks are considered suitable for the storage of coal tar liquid fuels provided that the characteristics of the particular fuel to be stored can be obtained.

This standard also includes general requirements for the design and staying or stiffening of tanks.
