Because the standards-setting bodies in most cases represent the interests of all parties, they must be consensus standards. The standards have been relied upon heavily by both industry and authorities to ensure safe and effective equipment and designs. In fact, the purpose of these standards and codes has been to provide acceptable, practical, and useful standards that ensure quality, safety, and reliability in equipment, practices, operations, or designs. Because of the widely varied historical beginnings of the industrial .

In other words, the owner or operator must show that the emission control option selected for a specific installation represents the best practices, given all factors taken into consideration including emissions, costs, existing processes, and facilities. This section is based upon API 650, but the principles are applicable to other codes such as API 620 or AWWA D-lOO. Carbon steels used for storage tanks have specified minimum yield strengths of approximately 30 to 60 kilopounds per square inch (ksi).

When the toughness of A36 is insufficient, then a modified A36 (specified in API 650) may be used. The modified A36 requires that the . 2 percent. The A283C is also widely used for water storage and petroleum plates, but A36 has generally become the steel of choice for tanks under Yo in thick. The A283C has a lower allowable stress and therefore may be less economical when required thicknesses are taken into consideration. The A131B is a common choice where improved toughness is required in thinner plate.
