How to write on tank Name Plate

Wednesday, January 10, 2018   By: N.D.Dung [1910] 0 Stars
Dear All,

We have a tank build on 1990, we do alternate by adding one shell course on 2010 and we move it to new location on 2017. Do we need to change original name plate by new name plate or we keep original name plate and add a new name plate?

What should we mention on new name plate? We will mention original build date, alteration date and move date?

My opinion I agree with Mr. BABRTs
The name plate should last as long as the tank is still there, to remind staff to look for the records they need to do.
When it has made a change in service by fixing records it is the key to tracking and updating history.
Construction records may include •nameplate information, drawings, specifications, construction completion report, and any results of material tests and analyses.
If information required to complete the nameplate as required• by the as-built standard is available and traceable to the tank, a new Replacement Nameplate, similar to that shown in figure 10-1 in API 650, may be attached under the direction of the Authorized Inspector:
The new nameplate shall contain all of the information required by the as-build standard and be marked Replacement Name plate.
The new nameplate shall be attached to the tank shell adjacent to the existing nameplate, if any an existing nameplate shall be left attached to the tank. Nameplate shall be attached as specified in API 650, if you want more detail, please see Section 13-Marking and Recordkeeping from API 653.

Atmospheric Design Pressure
By: Fathi [46]

The whole story is to avoid brittle fracture=

Test temperature shall be equal or warmer than Minimum Metal Design temperature at Test pressure.
------------------

I would limit my minimum testing temperature for a tank (or even for a vessel or a piping system) by the =

Temp = maximum of [ Min(lower shell) , Min(shell# 2) ....Min (Upper shell) ]

For a Shell# i the minimum is function ( of shell tickness , Material group ) and this can be found in API 650 , Fig 2-1
