Tank System


Includes the primary tank and pipe, integral secondary containment, integral supports, leak detection, overfill prevention, spill containment, anti−siphon devices, and the necessary core components that allow the tank system to function as intended and in accordance with the installation requirements. Tank system configurations include on−shore underground storage tanks, on−shore aboveground storage tanks, and storage tanks over water that are integral with a stationary pier, floating vessel or floating structure for the purpose of storage or vehicle fueling.


Note: In a typical fueling island, the dispensing system, as defined in section Comm 10.050 (41), begins immediately downstream of the emergency shut−off valve, and all components upstream of that point, including the shut−off valve, are part of the tank system.
