ARTICLE 515. BULK STORAGE PLANTS515.2. Definition. A flammable liquid is said to become volatile when the ambient temperature is equal to, or greater than, its flash point. Typical flash points are gasoline, −45°F (−43°C); kerosene, 100°F (38°C); diesel oil, 100°F (38°C). Thus, the status of gasoline is definitely established as a volatile flammable liquid regardless of geographical location of the storage facility. Other liquids may change from one state to another depending on the relation of the ambient temperature to their respective flash points. (See Fire Hazard Properties of Flammable Liquids, Gases and Volatile Solids, NFPA No. 325M.)515.3. Class I Locations.
