Thermosetting FiberglassReinforced Plastic Tanks
|Publication Date:||7 June 2019|
This standard describes the composition, performance requirements, construction practices and workmanship, design, and methods of testing thermosetting fiberglass-reinforce
Limit of standard.
This standard is limited to atmospheric pressure, vented, cylindrical, and spherical tanks, installed either aboveground or underground.
This standard is limited to tanks whose service temperature does not exceed 180°F (82°C) for aboveground tanks and 150°F (66°C) for underground tanks. Consult the tank manufacturer for recommended temperature limits (both minimum and maximum) for specific equipment and service requirements.
The service limits for environmental exposure and structural loads shall be determined based on tests of laminates that are determined by the engineer to be representative of the materials and methods of fabrication used in the tank.
The purpose of this standard is to provide purchasers, manufacturers, and suppliers with the minimum requirements for thermosetting FRP tanks, including material and design.
