Fire wall definition
'A fire wall is a means of shielding a fuel tank from the thermal radiation from a fire. For LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) tanks, it also ensures that gas accidentally leaking from the tank or fittings must travel by a longer path and therefore disperse safely, before reaching a hazard such as an opening in a building, a boundary or other potential ignition source.'
