API 620 Design Standard is a specification for design and construction of large, welded, low pressure storage tanks. API 620 tanks are used for products which have high internal pressure such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) and cryogenic tanks. API 620 tanks can store contents at a higher pressure (maximum 15 pounds per square inch (PSI) of gas or vapor storage) and lower temperature (-325 degrees F to 250 degrees F) than API 650.

The Manufacturer of a low-pressure storage tank that will bear the API 620 nameplate shall ensure that the tank is constructed in accordance with the requirements of this standard.
 
1.Coverage
This API 620 tank standard covers the design and construction of large, welded, low-pressure carbon steel above ground storage tanks (including flat-bottom tanks) that have a single vertical axis of revolution. This standard does not cover design procedures for tanks that have walls shaped in such a way that the walls cannot be generated in their entirety by the rotation of a suitable contour around a single vertical axis of revolution.

2.Design
The rules presented in this standard are intended to establish approved engineering practices for low-pressure storage tanks constructed of any shape within the scope of 1.2 and to provide the fundamental rules for design and testing, which can serve as a sufficient basis for an inspector to judge the safety of any vessel and improve the application of the API 620 nameplate. Where these rules do not cover all details of design and construction, the Manufacturer, subject to the approval of the authorized inspector, shall provide details of design and construction that will be as safe as those provided by this standard.

2.1Pressure Chambers
For API 620 tanks that consist of two or more independent pressure chambers and have a roof, bottom, or other elements in common, each pressure part shall be designed for the most severe combination of pressure or vacuum that can be experienced under the specified operating conditions.

2.2Operating Temperature
The temperature of the liquids, vapor, or gases stored in, or entering, these tanks shall not exceed 250°F (see 1.2.2).

2.3Pressures Used in Design
Above Maximum Liquid Level
Tank components, including those above the maximum liquid level, subjected principally to gas pressure shall be designed for:
a)a pressure not less than the relief valves’ set pressure. The maximum positive gauge pressure shall be understood to be the nominal pressure rating for the tank (sometimes called the design pressure) and shall not exceed 15 lbf/in.2 gauge.
b)the maximum partial vacuum (also called the design vacuum) when the inflow of air (or another gas or vapor) through the vacuum relief valves is at the tank design maximum in-breathing flow rate.
