The incorrect installation of a heating appliance or design and installation of a flue can result in situations leading directly to the dangers noted above. The installation of mechanical extract fans is not in itself dangerous but guidance on their use has been included under this standard as their use with open-flued appliances can cause problems. Extract fans lower the pressure in a building and this can cause the spillage of combustion products from open-flued appliances. This can occur even if the appliance and the fan are in different rooms. Combustion appliances therefore should be capable of operating safely whether or not any fan is running see clause 3. Biomass as a solid fuel comes in different forms with the most common being woody biomass.

They have a BSPP screwed connection fitting for the attachment of the delivery tanker hose and a separate vent fitting with a cross sectional area as per BS Part 5.
These should have at least the same cross sectional area as the fill point. These are usually at the opposite end of the tank from the fill equipment. A vent pipe is always provided, the size of which is important to prevent over pressurisation of the tank. In many single skin tanks, a draw-off pipe is provided at the lower part of one end and a drain-off cock at the other end. Draw off facilities can be provided in the top of the tank as is common on integrally bunded tanks. Galvanised steel tanks must never be used for oil storage.
These tanks can be de-sludged by inserting a suction pipe into the top of the tank. Plastic oil storage tanks are not required to be painted, so the tanks are often installed at ground level provided there is adequate clearance under the fuel supply pipe to maintain filters and water traps. Oil should never be stored in translucent plastic containers, due to the detrimental effects of ultraviolet light on both the plastic and contained fuel.
It is to be noted that open bunds require periodic maintenance to remove potentially contaminated rain water and regional legislation may prohibit their use in some areas. Page 1 Section 1 Edition.

What are the base requirements for Storage Tanks? As a minimum, all plastic oil tanks should be installed on a flat, level, fire resistant surface, capable of supporting the weight of the tank when fully laden. The base should extend at least mm beyond the widest points of the oil tank and fully support the base of the oil tank in its entirety. On plastic tanks, piers are not suitable for this purpose and will cause irreparable damage to the oil tank, possibly resulting in premature failure and catstrophic product loss.
