AUTOMATIC ELECTRONIC LINE LEAK
Leak rate of 3.0 gph at 10 psi* with PD = 100% and PFA = 0%.
Leak rate of 0.2 gph at operating pressure with PD = 100% and PFA = 0%.
Leak rate of 0.1 gph at 1.5 times operating pressure* with PD = 100% and PFA
rate varies as a function of pressure, this leak rate and pressure
were certified using an equivalent leak rate and pressure, in
accordance with an acceptable protocol.
||1.5 gph for leak
rate of 3.0 gph.
0.1 gph for leak rate of 0.2 gph.
0.05 gph for leak rate of 0.1 gph.
A pipeline system should not be declared tight if the test result
indicates a loss that equals or exceeds this threshold.

None between dispensing and testing for leak rate of 3.0 gph and 0.2
Minimum of 8 hours between dispensing and testing for leak rate of 0.1
||Response time is
3 minutes for leak rate of 3.0 gph.
Response time is 2 hours, 21 minutes for leak rate of 0.2 gph.
Response time is 50 minutes for leak rate of 0.1 gph.
Test data are acquired and recorded by a microprocessor.
Calculations are automatically performed by the microprocessor.

Automatic testing of pipeline.
Preset threshold. Single test to determine if pipeline is leaking.
Pump shutdown, numerical "fail" code display and LED alarm light
activation if leak is declared.
||System must be
checked annually and, if necessary, calibrated in accordance with
||For test using
leak rate of 0.2 gph only:
After 28 days have elapsed since the last passing monthly line leak
test, system shuts off the submersible pump.
System display will flash number of days since the last passing
Operator may reset button to enable dispensing for a 24 hour period.
This procedure may be used for a maximum of 4 days.
After 32 days have elapsed since last monthly test, system will disable
dispensing and automatically initiate a test, and system will not
authorize dispensing until a test is passed or system is serviced.
