Storage Tank Relief Relief Valve Compliance


Pressure relief valves are critical to the safe operation of propane storage tanks & bulk plants. As such, they are closely regulated in most states and subject to both National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) and NFPA requirements, which call for testing and replacement at regular intervals.

In the state of Virginia, regulations for pressure relief valve testing and certification call for routine inspections to verify an appropriate device is installed on all tanks in addition to rigorous testing to confirm their proper working condition in accordance with Virginia Department of Labor & Industry (DOLI) and NFPA 58 recommendations, including:

  • Pressure relief valve testing & certification for ASME pressure vessels with capacities exceeding 2,000 gallons must be completed every 5 years
  • Inspections must be performed by a certified pressure relief valve testing contractor to insure compliance.
  • Test or replacement of valves that are over ten years old must be completed before the next scheduled inspection
  • At the owners discretion, pressure relief valve replacement is an acceptable alternative to testing


TransTech Energy has served as a certified valve contractor for over five decades and has performed thousands of pressure relief valve inspections and replacements for tank and bulk plant owners in Virginia and across the U.S,
