Following an inspection, a tank has been subjected to an RBI assessment. The maximum allowable internal inspection period allowed is:



Q19. Chloride SCC temperatures
Chloride SCC of 300-series stainless steel occurs above a metal temperature of about:



Q20. Minimum thickness of the annular ring
The minimum allowable thickness of a tank annular ring is:



Q21. Addition or replacement of shell penetrations
A new nozzle is to be installed in an existing shell. The nozzle is 1 in NPS and the shell is 3/8 in thick. How must the nozzle be installed?



Q22. Acceptable future life with a known corrosion rate
A 50-year-old riveted oil tank has the following data:
. Diameter = 115 ft and height = 50 ft
. Oil density = 875 kg/m3
. Material: unknown
. Rivet arrangement: double-row lap-jointed
. Shell lower course has thinned from 1.3 into 1.0 in since new

Q23. CUI prevention/mitigation
Which of these would significantly reduce the risk of the occurrence of CUI on a 316 stainless steel tank component system fitted with standard mineral wool lagging?



Q24. Shell evaluation formula
A freshwater tank has the following data:
. Diameter = 100 feet
. Height = 30 feet
. Allowable stress in lower shell course = 24.8 ksi
. Joint efficiency E = 0.8
What is the minimum allowable (corroded) thickness of the lower shell plate course (ignore isolated pitting)?



Q25. Floor repairs using lap patches
A lap patch has been used to effect a permanent repair of the floor plate of a storage tank. The repair procedure shows that the patch crosses an existing floor seam weld and that the weld on the lap patch running parallel to the floor seam is 2 inches from it. What should the inspector do?



Q26. Maximum settlement Bα at angle α to the tank shell

The existing welds on the floor are at 25° from the tank centreline. What should the inspector do?



Q27. Measuring settlement during a hydro test
How many settlement measurement points are required during a hydro test, compared to the ‘out-of-service’ requirement specified in API 653 appendix B?


28. Q28. API 653: settlement points
How many inspection points around the circumference are required to carry out a survey for a very large tank 280 ft in diameter?
