This section specifies certain dimensions and characteristics of man-hole openings and man-hole lids, primarily to ensure that tank containers are equipped with openings of sufficient size to allow complete internal inspection and cleaning, and to provide ease of filling and easy passage of persons in an emergency. In addition, the dimensions and characteristics specified also simplify emergency maintenance and parts replacement by providing compatibility between manufacturing sources.
The dimensions and characteristics specified are applicable to tank containers complying with the requirements of ISO 1496-3, intended to contain liquids or pressurized dry bulk, with a specified test pressure not exceeding 600 kPa1l, i.e. tank containers of type codes 70 to 76 and 85 to 88.
Except where otherwise stated, the requirements of this International Standard are minima. Tank containers to be used for the carriage of dangerous goods may be subject to additional international and national requirements as applied by competent authorities.
