    Waste oil desposal tank inside of a shipping container

    Does anyone know if a Waste Oil recycle storage tank and Oil Filter Crusher , located inside of a Shipping Container , where a person walks in and dumps used oil into a tank would be considered a Classified Location ? Studied NFPA , NEC understand gasoline and other flammables , can't find Oil , other than it has a higher flash point as a combustible not sure about its classification or wiring methods . Help would be greatly appreciated . Thanks !

    It does not give off easily ignitable gases under normal temp and pressure conditions like gasoline does, those gases are what causes the classification.

        In your particular case it doesn't matter whether it is Class II or Class IIIB. See NFPA 497, Section 4.2.7. If you still have a concern, consult with a relevant MSDS.
