Cargo Tank Maintenance Manual revised
Sep 1, 2004 12:00 PM
The National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) has developed the third edition of its Cargo Tank Maintenance Manual. This edition includes all changes resulting from DOT Docket HM213 and all regulatory changes through June 2004. For the first time, the manual will be available on CD-ROM as well as in a printed version with more than 250 pages and 30 graphics.
This manual was developed to help cargo tank maintenance facilities comply with 49 CFR Part 180 and other federal regulations governing the testing, inspection, and repair of cargo tanks, and for training purposes. Separate sections cover all DOT400 and MC300 specification cargo tanks and “non-spec” foodgrade, hot-product, and dry bulk tanks. Printable test and inspection forms are included for all tanks. It also includes more than 90 DOT interpretations and guidance documents to help shops comply with regulations. “How-to” procedures are provided to ease recordkeeping requirements. The CD's point-and-click references aid document navigation.
