    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for the design, construction, location, and operation and testing of systems for the storage and handling of anhydrous ammonia. Requirements for the management of emergencies involving anhydrous ammonia and for the fire protection associated facilities are also specified.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the design, repair, alteration, location, installation and operation of plant used for the storage, handling and transport of anhydrous ammonia in industrial and rural situations. This Standard is not applicable to— (a) ammonia manufacturing plants; (b) manufacturing plants and other systems involving the use of ammonia; and (c) refrigeration systems, where anhydrous ammonia is used solely as a refrigerant. The storage, handling and transport of anhydrous ammonia associated with these plants are not excluded. NOTE: A guide to the properties of anhydrous ammonia is given in Appendix A.
