LPG storage vessels will rupture violently if subject to prolonged fire attack. The consequences of rupture are severe and could lead to a major loss of life. The probability of such an event can be reduced by the strict compliance with safety codes. This paper describes the existing standards of fire protection for LPG vessels in the UK and research work carried out by the HSE on the subject.
Proposed changes to the standards are described.
