API PUBL | Jose Focaccio –
There are a group of spherical tanks each in the size of Ton LPG. This is a farm of containers that located inside the refinery premises, and used to store the final product before delivery to road tracks.
Can you please help on interpretation what is mandatory here according to USA regulation and is it possible that API excludes Excess flow valves from use? Unless you are self-insured, ask your insurance company’s Risk Management person.
The answer will to install Excess Flow valves. The risk of a hose break or other loadout problem is fairly high when running “bare”. Risk times Consequences equals unacceptable exposure in both dollars and dead operator s. Your company needs to “declare” which spec you will be using. Also, all the high-stress welds — first 2 90’s out from each anchor, all 90’s in expansion loops — should be MT’d – magnetic particle exam for OD cracking. All piping, including flanges and flange bolting has to be rated for cryogenic temperatures.
Just put in the Excess Flow valves. I appreciate your response.
The need for cryogenic design on piping is quite interesting and logical. The NFPA58 demands that the safety valves will be internal, and in that case they need to empty to “Gas Free” the vessel for each repair.

I found it somehow a “chain” of faulty design that leads to it. Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate.
