    By fuel storage tanks do you mean large tanks at oil refineries etc, or like small, consumer fuel tanks?

    Oh It's wonderful!

    I wrote email some oil company and fire protection company, and i'm waiting answers.

    I bought a book (Handbook of Fire and Explosion Protection Engineering Principles for Oil, Gas, Chemical, and Related Facilities). I hope it'll be good for my thesis.
    I'm collecting subjects.

    In my country we don't protect different fire or flame detectors these tanks, but we have got foam systems that we can suppression the fire, foam monitors and so eqiupment whereby flow the foam to top of the flammable liquid.
    I read in your country you protect tanks different detectors, but i saw just foam monitors.

    Default Fire Prevention--Tank Farms and Refineries

    Good prevention starts with good design. Get a copy of NFPA 30-2003, The Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code. see www.nfpa.org look at the chapters on fundementals, tanks, piping systems, & operations. Then look at process safety manageament (PSM) requirements that are applicable to tank farms (bulk terminals) and refineries.
    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of suppression! Sometimes even more!

    Szicsa,

    Google process safety management. You'll find lots of information. PSM is a means for dealing with all the special hazards thatcome with hazardous materials processing facilities. Start with the www.osha.gov links. Here in the US it is mandatory in many cases. You should also find references in the oil and chemical company sites that RFRDxplorer gave you.

    Default More PSM

    Also look in these areas.

    OSHA implemented the Process Safety Management (PSM) standard (29 CFR 1910.119).

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated a similar regulation, Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs, under the Clean Air Act Risk Management Plan (RMP) Rule (40 CFR Chapter I, Subchapter C, Part 68).
