Abstract In foundries, flammable liquids with ignition temperatures below 21░C and between 21 and 55░C are used in the coating of moulds. Layout and design of the storage facilities including storage tanks for such substances in compliance with German safety regulations are illustrated and discussed. For example, for storage of more than 5000 litres of flammable mould-coating liquids permission must be obtained from the authorities and an inspection is required to make sure that the storage facilities including the storage tank comply with German safety regulations.
