10 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
are designed to carry flammable and combustible metals. Is made of steel, stainless steel or aluminum. They are non pressure and often are carrying gasoline, and diesel fuel. They have capacities of 2,000 to 10,000 gallons of product within their single-compartment or multi-compartment interior.
Carry high density liquids and corrosives. Constructed of black iron steel, stainless steel, or an aluminum alloy, they are typically lined with a material that will resist degradation and reaction with the tank’s contents. They are low pressure but must meet the pressure of what they are transporting.
4) Visually, MC-312/DOT-412 tanks are typically identified by their cylinder-shaped cross-sections (heads), a barrel of narrow diameter with external ribbing, and a platform located on top of the container. These tanks have a volume of up to 6,000 gallons, working pressures of up to approximately 75 psig, and a large number of stiffening rings.
carry up to 11,500 gallons of gases liquefied by the application of pressures. The working pressures may range from 100 psig up to 500 psig. Products typically include anhydrous ammonia, chlorine, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and liquefied carbon dioxide. The MC-331 is best described as having a hemispherical shaped front and rear cross-sections (heads), usually with a diameter larger than that of a barrel of smooth sides with no external ribs, and a side profile showing the semi hemispherical (rounded, bullet-nosed) heads. These heads are indicative of the pressure container.
Carries cryogenic liquids include helium, oxygen, and nitrogen. From the outside, the containers might appear similar to any other cargo tank. The tank, however, is constructed as a container within a container similar to a thermos bottle.
Dry bulk
7) vehicles are used to transport products such as ammonium nitrate or corrosive solids. Tanks having a similar appearance are used to carry cement and other nonhazardous dry bulk materials. Liquid/dry mixture trailers carry dry bulk loads in front and liquids such as calcium oxide or a mild acid in the rear section.
A tube trailer looks like a flat bed trailer with many long compressed gas cylinders stacked and secured to the trailer.
Carries helium, compressed air, methane, methyl bromide, & hydrogen.
IM 101
is the equivalent of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) type 1 tank. It has a maximum allowable working pressure of 25 to 100 psi, and is used to transport products such as corrosives, toxins, and flammables. These tanks have volumes between 5,000–6,300 gallons.
IM 102
is the equivalent of the IMO type 2 tank, is designed to withstand pressures from 14.5 to 24.4 psi (lower than those of the IM 101), and is used to transport alcohols, corrosives, pesticides, solvents, and flammables. These tanks have volumes between 5,000–6,300 gallons.
Pipeline markers are required
4) where pipelines cross or come in close proximity to any other mode of transportation. The markers must list the product type, pipeline owner, and an emergency telephone number (mandated by 49 CFR).
Identify information on a material safety data sheet (MSDS).
must contain the following information.
· physical and chemical characteristics
· physical hazards of the material
· health hazards of the material
· signs and symptoms of exposure
· routes of entry
· permissible exposure limits
· responsible party contact
· precautions for safe handling, including hygiene practices, protective measures, and procedures for cleanup of spills or leaks
· applicable control measures, including personal protective equipment requirements
· emergency and first aid procedures
