SACHE Product View
Seminar on Tank Failures
Storage tanks are encountered in every process environment. This SACHE product covers three significant tank failures
- BLEVE (boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion) in Mexico City (1984),
LNG (liquefied natural gas) tank failure in Cleveland (1944), and
diesel storage tank failure (1988).
Each case demonstrates a different root cause (secondary events due to an initial surrounding fire, materials compatibility issues with cryogenic materials, and flaws in a relocation project that did not follow codes and guidelines).
This presentation concludes with a review of common failure modes for storage tanks and prevention measures.
This presentation increases the student’s awareness of process safety requirements for storage tanks. It can be used effectively by university professors, or industrial trainers. This is a PowerPoint revision of the original 1993 SACHE product.
