A view of the flammable storage tank involved in the accident at the Motiva Refinery. Motiva Enterprises Refinery. Delaware City, Del., J 1 killed, 8 injured. A massive explosion destroyed a large storage tank containing a mixture of sulfuric acid and flammable hydrocarbons at the Motiva Enterprises Delaware City : Noria Corporation. Ian Sutton, in Process Risk and Reliability Management, Tank filling and emptying. When fixed roof tanks with an open vent are filled, hydrocarbon or chemical vapors are discharged into the air, thus creating a fire hazard. To eliminate this hazard the vent can be connected either to a vapor recovery system or to other tanks through an interconnecting vapor system where liquid .

Atmospheric Above Ground Tank Storage of Methanol INTRODUCTION Guidelines for designing, fabricating, constructing, repairing, and safeguarding above-ground methanol storage tanks is essentially the same as that for liquid transportation fuels such as ethanol and gasoline, and flammable liquid feed stocks such as benzene, acetone, and Size: KB. An aboveground storage tank has leaked flammable liquid into the surrounding diked containment area. A foam stream is directed against the side of the tank. Foam is running down the side of the tank and covering the spilled fuel in the containment area.

The expanded foam enters the base of the storage tank then floats up through the flammable liquid to the surface where it covers the surface with a foam blanket. Fluoroprotein foam is sometimes used in the hydrocarbon processing industry for storage tank fire fighting. It is necessary to use with air-aspirating discharge devices. hour and having all communicating openings properly protected by an assembly having a fire resistance rating of at least 1 hour.
