Organization: API
Publication Date: 1 May 2000
Status: active
Page Count: 14
scope:

This publication covers ßame arresters on vents for above-ground steel petroleum tanks operating essentially at atmospheric pressure as deÞned in API Standard 650, Welded Steel Tanks for Oil Storage.

SpeciÞcally excluded from the scope of this publication are all in-line ßame arresters such as Flame Arresters in Piping Systems which are addressed in API Publication 2028 or ßame arresters for marine vapor control systems (which have requirements regulated by the Federal Government, Title 33 CFR Part 154). Operation, Maintenance and Testing of Firebox Flame Arresters is the subject of API Recommended Practice RP12N. API Publication 2028 discusses the inßuence of ßame speed on ßame arrester performance for deßagrations (subsonic ßame speed) and detonations (ßame propagation at speeds greater than the speed of sound). Tank vent ßame arresters are not intended for protection against detonation.
