How to Compliantly Store Flammables Inside Your Facility
Flammable and combustible liquids require special storage in order to minimize hazards. Safely storing these chemicals begins with identifying hazard classifications and the risks associated with each classification. Illustrated below are key terms and definitions that address flammable and combustible properties.
Flashpoint: This is the minimum temperature at which a substance produces enough vapor to create combustion. The lower the flashpoint the greater the danger.
Flammable Liquids: Liquids that have a flashpoint below 100°F – separated into three different classes:
- Class IA: Having a flashpoint below 73°F and consisting of a boiling point below 100°F.
- Class IB: Having a flashpoint below 73°F and consisting of a boiling point at or above 100°F.
- Class IC: Having a flashpoint at or above 73°F and below 100°F.
Combustible Liquid: Is considered any liquid having a flashpoint at or above 100°F. Combustible liquids are separated by two classes:
- Class II: Having a flashpoint at or above 100°F and below 140°F.
- Class III: Having a flashpoint at or above 140°F.
