Today's complex industrial plants can pose many risks of fire, explosions, and other hazardous incidents if proper safety mechanisms are not in place. Of particular concern are accidental gaseous emissions that jeopardize the health of workers and the facility itself. This guide explains the latest engineering and administrative options available for avoiding and controlling accidents, including how to set up reliable systems for preventing and mitigating accidental releases as well as how to evaluate the performance of these systems.In case of fire, tank will be directly exposed to flames that can be supplied by a large amount of fuel and will be hard to control, ... It is usually much better to direct possible spills and leaks to an area away from the ... the automatic dump valve on the tanks may rapidly become corroded on the outside, making it impossible to transfer contents to another storage vessel. ...
