Description

This data sheet covers the ignitable liquids stoage in portable containers.

Scope

This data sheet covers the storage of chemically stable liquids that can burn (i.e., ignitable liquids) stored in portable, non-pressurized metal, glass, fiberboard, plastic, or composite containers of any size.

For the purposes of this document, the term "ignitable liquid" is used to represent any liquid that has a measurable fire point. Also, the term "flash point" always refers to the closed-cup flash point unless stated otherwise.

This data sheet does not cover the following subjects:

  • A. The dispensing of ignitable liquids. Use Data Sheet 7-32, Ignitable Liquid Operations, to evaluate all ignitable liquid dispensing operations.
  • B. Combustible solids or unstable liquids (i.e., liquids that have the potential to self-react or polymerize).
  • C. Liquids that have a flash point but no fire point (see Appendix A).
  • D. Aerosols. See Data Sheet 7-31, Storage of Aerosol Products.
  • E. Distilled spirits in wooden barrels.
  • F. Stationary tanks. See Data Sheet 7-88, Storage Tanks for Ignitable Liquids.
  • G. Compressed or flammable liquefied gases. See Data Sheet 7-50, Compressed Gases in Cylinders; Data Sheet 7-53, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG); and Data Sheet 7-55, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in Stationary Installations.
