Pressure Testing Guidelines for Oil Storage Tanks UL-142 oil storage tank standard calls for pressure testing oil storage tanks (that fall under this standard) at 3-5 psi for cylindrical oil storage tanks. UL-142 calls for pressure testing oil storage tanks (that fall under this standard) at 1.5-2 psi for rectangular welded-construction storage tanks. Bench top above ground storage tanks for flammable and combustible liquids (Standard UL 142) also must meet NFPA setions 30, 30A, 31 and the Uniform Fire Code UFC Article 79. These benchtop atmospheric tanks are typically tested to 1 psi but may have to have passed a design hydrostatic pressure tes of 25 psi. Other types of tanks such as double wall generator base tanks might be tested to 25 psi and at four times load pressure test. These complete text of these oil storage tank codes and standards are available from UL, NFPA, and ASTM directly.
