  1. A general service tank car has a maximum pressure of 165psi. That question was not one of the choces.

  2. Bill Barnholt, Jr.

    A DOT 111A100W1 tank car is designed to transport “non-pressure” type products. The “100” denotes that the tank car has been tested at 100 psi when the DOT regulations require the test. However, the tank test pressure is only about 30% of the tank’s burst pressure. This means that the tank can hold about 335 psi inside before exploding.

  3. Bill Barnholt, Jr.

    A DOT 105J500 tank car is tank tested at 500 psi during it’s required tank test. Again this is about 30% of the tank’s burst pressure. This means that this car can hold about 1650psi before exploding.
