What is this standard about?

There are over 130,000 filling stations in Europe as well as a need to regulate the safe storage of hazardous chemicals. This European Standard therefore details how to construct and test robust steel tanks for safe, environmentally friendly underground storage. 

This third part of a three-part European standard deals with tanks for storing liquids for the heating and cooling of buildings. 

Who is this standard for?

  • Underground steel tank manufacturers
  • Petrol stations
  • Anyone with responsibility for heating oil storage
  • Anyone with responsibility for hot or cold water storage for the heating and cooling of buildings

Why should you use this standard?

It specifies the product characteristics and test/assessment methods for workshop fabricated cylindrical, horizontal steel tanks of single (type S) and double skin (type D) intended to be used for the underground storage of water polluting liquids (both flammable and nonflammable), specifically used for storage and/or supply of fuel for building heating/cooling systems, and of hot or cold water not intended for human consumption at normal ambient temperature conditions (−20 °C to +50 °C) within the following limits:

  • From 800 mm up to 3000 mm nominal diameter
  • Up to a maximum overall length of 6 times the nominal diameter
  • For liquids with a maximum density of up to 1,1 kg/l 
  • For liquids with an operating pressure (Po) of maximum 50 kPa (0,5 bar(g)) and minimum – 5 kPa (–50 mbar(g))
  • For double skin tanks with a vacuum leak detection system where the kinematic viscosity does not exceed 5 × 10−3 m2/s

Tanks designed to this standard allow for an earth cover of up to 1.5 m. If there are imposed traffic loads or a greater earth cover, calculation is required.

Guidance on installation of tanks is presented in Annex A, which does not include special measures that might be necessary in areas subject to flooding.

NOTE: This standard doesn’t apply to tanks installed in industrial processes or in petrol stations, nor to loads and special measures necessary in areas subject to risk of earthquakes.

What’s changed since the last update?

This is a new document. The original Part 1 – BS EN 12285‐1:2003 – was split into a revised Part 1 and this new Part 3 to ensure the standard meets current industry needs.
