(This figure is for illustrative purposes only; code shall govern.)
The location of the container is important. Specific rules about the placement of liquid containers can be found in the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 58. There are standards for ASME aboveground containers, ASME underground containers, and DOT cylinders.
Verify that the containers you install are properly located in accordance with NFPA-58. Also verify that the container location is accessible for safe filling from the bulk delivery truck.
