Atmospheric tanks (API 650) are designed to a gauge pressure of ≤ 212 psi. Low pressure tanks (API 620) are designed to a gauge pressure of 212 À15 psi. Most of the API examination questions will be about the atmospheric type of tanks since API 620 is (strictly) not in the BOK. 2) the definition of vapour pressure. This is defined as the pressure existing on the surface of a confined liquid caused by the vapours given off by the liquid. It is the value of this vapour pressure that determines whether a fluid can be stored in an atmospheric tank or requires a (low) pressurized tank.

8: examiner This is a concept that features in API 570 and 510 for pipes and vessels but is mysteriously absent from API 653, appearing, instead, here in API 575. Do not confuse this as anything to do with the examiner who oversees the API certification exams. This is the API terminology for the NDT technician who provides the NDT results for evaluation by the API-qualified storage tank inspector. API recognizes the NDT technician as a separate entity from the API-authorized storage tank inspector.
