Upon such plate shall be plainly marked by stamping, embossing, or other means of forming letters into or onto the metal of the plate itself the following information in characters at least 38 inch high: Manufacturer's Name

Serial No.---. Owner's Serial Number.. I. C. C. Specification Number. Water capacity (pounds). Tare weight (pounds)-Design working pressure (psig). Original test date.. Tank retested at------- (psig) on..

(b) All tank outlets and inlets, except safety relief valves, shall be marked to designate whether they communicate with vapor or liquid when the tank is filled to the maximum permitted filling density.
