Glossary

Specialty tanks must provide a means of overfill prevention that automatically alerts the transfer operator when the level of product reaches no more than 90% of the maximum capacity of the tank by restricting the flow of product into the tank or by triggering an alarm during the transfer process.   The tank must also be equipped with a mechanism that automatically shuts off the flow of product into the tank if the level reaches 95% of maximum capacity.
