TS-LS300 Series
(Originally listed as Campo/Miller LS300-120 PLUS AL, LS300-120 PLUS AL A/S, LS300-120 PLUS AL LSI)
(for Rigid, Flexible or Hybrid Combination of Rigid and Flexible Pipelines)

AUTOMATIC ELECTRONIC LINE LEAK DETECTOR

Certification

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 = 0%.
*Since leak 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.

Leak Threshold 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.
Applicability Gasoline, diesel, aviation fuels, fuel oil #4, waste oil, kerosene.
Specification System tests pressurized rigid or flexible pipelines for all leak rates.
System tests pressurized hybrid combination of rigid and flexible pipelines for 3.0 gph leak rate only.
Tests are conducted at operating pressure.
Pipeline Capacity For 3.0 gph leak rate test:
  Maximum of 396.6 gallons for rigid pipelines.
  Maximum of 95.5 gallons for flexible pipelines.
  Maximum of 492.1 gallons for hybrid combination of rigid and flexible pipelines.
  (rigid portion cannot exceed 396.6 gallons and flexible portion cannot exceed 95.5 gallons)
For 0.2 leak rate and 0.1 gph leak rate tests:
  Maximum of 163 gallons for rigid pipelines (Example: 350 feet of 3 3/8 inch line).
  Maximum of 39.5 gallons for flexible pipelines (Example: 430 feet of 1 inch line).
Waiting Time None between delivery and testing. 
None between dispensing and testing for leak rate of 3.0 gph. 
Minimum of 3 hours between dispensing and testing for leak rate of 0.2 gph. 
Minimum of 6 hours between dispensing and testing for leak rate of 0.1 gph.
Test Period Response time is 10 minutes for leak rate of 3.0 gph. 
Minimum of 25 minutes for leak rate of 0.2 gph. 
Minimum of 34 minutes for leak rate of 0.1 gph. 
Test data are acquired and recorded by a microprocessor.
System Features

Permanent installation on pipeline. 
Automatic testing of pipeline every 45 minutes for leak rate of 3.0 gph. 
Automatic testing of pipeline when pump has been idle for 3 hours for leak rate of 0.2 gph. 
Automatic testing of pipeline when pump has been idle for 6 hours for leak rate of 0.1 gph. 
Preset threshold.
Triplicate testing to determine if pipeline is leaking. 
Pump shutdown, indicator light and alarm activation if leak is declared.

Pump control, line pressure display, alarm and test logs.

Calibration System must be checked annually and, if necessary, calibrated in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
