Ammonia is the best carrier of hydrogen, and is stored in large atmospheric storage tanks. The safety and integrity of these tanks are of utmost importance to the new renewable energy sources-based hydrogen and ammonia industry. How to maintain this is a topic for the session.
This presentation also discusses unique design features, applicable codes and standards in tank design, fabrication, commissioning, and operation. Guidelines for the inspection protocol for ammonia tanks are covered too.
Ammonia storage incidents - presented at the past safety symposiums over the last 50+ years - are reviewed.
This presentation is designed to help industry understand the challenges involved in the safe storage and handling of ammonia.
