AUTOMATIC TANK GAUGING METHOD
||Leak rate of 0.2
gph with PD = 97.8% and PFA = 2.2% for 30 minute test.
Leak rate of 0.2 gph with PD = 98.7% and PFA = 1.3% for 1 hour test.
Leak rate of 0.2 gph with PD = 99.2% and PFA = 0.8% for 2 hour test.
Leak rate of 0.2 gph with PD = 99.5% and PFA = 0.5% for 3 hour test.
Leak rate of 0.1 gph with PD = 96.9% and PFA = 1.9% for 2 hour test.
Leak rate of 0.1 gph with PD = 98.2% and PFA = 1.0% for 3 hour test.
||0.1 gph for leak
rate of 0.2 gph.
0.053 gph for leak rate of 0.1 gph.
A tank system should not be declared tight if the test result indicates a
loss or gain that equals or exceeds this threshold.
||Maximum of 20,000
Tank must be minimum 14% full for leak rate of 0.2 gph.
Minimum product level required based on 14% full tank and tank diameter is
48" dia/min 9.5";
120" dia/min 24.7".
For other tank diameters, consult manufacturer.
Tank must be minimum 90% full for leak rate of 0.1 gph.
||Minimum of 8
hours between delivery and testing for leak rate of 0.2 gph.
Minimum of 12 hours between delivery and testing for leak rate of 0.1
There must be no delivery during waiting time.
Minimum of 30 minutes between dispensing and testing.
Minimum of 30 minutes, 1, 2 or 3 hours for leak rate of 0.2 gph and
minimum of 2 or 3 hours for leak rate of 0.1 gph.
Test data are acquired and recorded by system's computer.
Leak rate is calculated as the difference between the first and last data
There must be no dispensing or delivery during test.
product is determined by a probe containing 5 thermistors with the lowest
thermistor located at the 10% tank volume level above the bottom of the
||Must be used to
detect water ingress.
Minimum detectable water level in the tank is 0.848 inch.
Minimum detectable change in water level is 0.043 inch.
probe must be checked and, if necessary, calibrated in accordance with
using manifolded tank systems. Therefore, this certification is only
applicable when there is a probe used in each tank and the siphon is broken
Tests only portion of tank containing product.
As product level is lowered, leak rate in a leaking tank decreases (due to
lower head pressure).
Consistent testing at low levels could allow a leak to remain
EPA leak detection regulations require testing of the portion of the tank
system which routinely contains product.
Site Sentinel models 2 and 3 were formerly models II and III respectively.
Model 924A Magnetostrictive Probe was formerly model 924.
Model 924B Magnetostrictive Probe is a newer probe that was not originally
listed under Petro Vend, Inc.
