For outdoor above ground diesel storage tank with 2.5m dia and 4.3 long horizontal tank (two numbers )requires a fixed fire protection system? like water spray system?.
Thanks in advance
Fuel is Diesel
NFPA 30 does not require fixed fire protection for outdoor tanks of that capacity and that type of fuel. Water spray could be installed if insufficient separation between tanks is provided and/or when required by the AHJ.
Thanks for your quick response.
Is NFPA 30 recommends the separation between tank.
First classified as per flash point diesel mostly have flash point less than93C. NFPA 30 state the separation distance b/w Tanks as well from nearest structure/buildings based upon volume to be stored and min. fire protection requirement . No fixed fire protection is mandatory.
Thanks Jay shree.
