1.2.8 Appendix C provides information on subgrade and foundation loading conditions and foundation construction practices. 1.2.9 Appendix D provides information about imposed loads and stresses from external supports attached to a tank wall. 1.2.10 Appendix E provides considerations for the design of internal and external structural supports. 1.2.11 Appendix F illustrates through examples how the rules in this standard are applied to various design problems. 1.2.12 Appendix G provides considerations for service conditions that affect the selection of a corrosion allowance; concerns for hydrogen-induced cracking effects are specifically noted. 1.2.13 Appendix H covers preheat and post-heat stress-relief practices for improved notch toughness. 1.2.14 Appendix I covers a suggested practice for peening weldments to reduce internal stresses. 1.2.15 Appendix J is reserved for future use. 1.2.16 Appendix K provides considerations for determining the capacity of tank venting devices. 1.2.17 Appendix L covers requirements for the design of storage tanks subject to seismic load. 1.2.18 Appendix M covers the extent of information to be provided in the Manufacturer’s report and presents a suggested format for a tank certification form. 1.2.19 Appendix N covers installation practices for pressure- and vacuum-relieving devices. 1.2.20 Appendix O provides considerations for the safe operation and maintenance of an installed tank, with attention given to marking, access, site drainage, fireproofing, water draw-off piping, and cathodic protection of tank bottoms. 1.2.21 Appendix P summarizes the requirements for inspection by method of examination and the reference paragraphs within the standard. The acceptance standards, inspector qualifications, and procedure requirements are also provided. This appendix is not intended to be used alone to determine the inspection requirements within this standard. The specific requirements listed within each applicable section shall be followed in all cases.
1.3 Limitations 1.3.1 General The rules presented in this standard apply to vertical, cylindrical oil storage tanks built according to API 650 as specifically allowed in, F.1, and F.7 of that standard. These rules do not apply to tanks built according to rules established for unfired pressure vessels designated for an internal pressure greater than 15 lbf/in. 2 gauge. 1.3.2 Piping Limitations The rules of this standard are not applicable beyond the following locations in piping connected internally or externally to the walls 1 of tanks constructed according to this standard: a) The face of the first flange in bolted flanged connections. b) The first threaded joint on the pipe outside the tank wall in threaded pipe connections. c) The first circumferential joint in welding-end pipe connections that do not have a flange located near the tank. <text deleted>
4.1 General 4.1.1 Material Specifications Materials used in the construction of API 620 tanks shall comply with the specifications in this section (see Appendices Q, R, and S for specific material requirements). Material produced to specifications other than those listed in this section may be used if the material is certified to meet all the requirements of a material specification listed in this section and that its use is approved by the Purchaser. 4.1.2 Materials That Cannot Be Completely Identified Any plate materials or tubular products on hand that cannot be completely identified with a specification listed in this standard, by records satisfactory to the inspector, may be used to construct tanks according to the rules of this standard if the material passes the test prescribed in Appendix B. 4.1.3 Accessory Pressure Parts All accessory pressure parts, such as pipe fittings, valves, flanges, nozzles, welding necks, welding caps, manhole frames, and covers, shall be made from materials provided for in this standard or in any accepted ANSI standard that covers the particular part. These parts shall be marked with the name or trademark of the manufacturer and any other markings that are required by the applicable standards. Such markings shall be considered the manufacturer’s guarantee that the product complies with the material specifications and standards indicated and is suitable for service at the rating indicated. The intent of this paragraph will have been met if, in lieu of the detailed marking on the part itself, the accessory pressure parts have been marked in any permanent or temporary manner that serves to identify the part with the manufacturer’s written listing of the particular items and if this listing is available for examination by the inspector. 4.1.4 Small Parts Cast, forged, or rolled parts of small size (which are ordinarily carried in stock and for which mill test reports or certificates are not customarily furnished) may be used if, in the opinion of the inspector,
