Anhydrous Ammonia Inspection Checklist Compliance Item Information Mobile App
An ASME portable tank built for anhydrous ammonia use used for transport and application is considered an implement of husbandry or a nurse tank by the DOT.
How does it work?
An portable ammonia tank unit used exclusively for transporting anhydrous ammonia is considered a DOT cargo tank, therefore, not a nurse tank/implement of husbandry. Also, a ammonia portable tank unit with a total capacity of over 3000 gallons used for transporting and application of anhydrous ammonia is also considered a DOT cargo (nurse) tank. DOT cargo tank regulations are much more stringent than for nurse tanks.

Wear NH3 rated goggles and gloves and have an accessible water supply in close proximity when handling anhydrous ammonia (NH3) or performing inspections/maintenance. Never assume that all NH3 is bled off from hosing, piping, tanks, cold flow/cooler units, etc. Be aware of others where NH3 is being released during normal operating processes and incidents.
