Tank Truck and Tank Car Loading Facilities
facilities required for loading over-the-road tank truck
transports or rail tank cars used for the bulk transfer of
fuel. A typical application is the transfer by tank truck
from a storage terminal to secondary storage, such as a
filling station or a heating plant. In many cases, the
receiving and loading facilities are combined. In these
cases, both receiving and loading facility requirements must
be addressed. This section does not include facilities for
loading aviation refuelers for direct issue to aircraft. This
process requires special design considerations as discussed in
Section 4 of this handbook. See Facility Plate Nos. 002
a) Determine the volume of fuel and number of tank
trucks or tank cars to be handled by an operational analysis
with assistance from Service Headquarters.
b) Comply with NFPA 30 for separation between tanks,
buildings, roads, and property lines; however, provide a
minimum separation from any of these facilities of 50 feet
(15 m). Assume that the property line is the fuel farm fence.
