Series 8590 DPLLD with 8600 Series System
(for Rigid and/or 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 fuel, ethanol blends up through E100, biodiesel blends B6-B20 meeting ASTM D7467, biodiesel B100 meeting ASTM D6751. 

Specification System tests pressurized rigid, flexible, and combinations of rigid and flexible pipelines.
Tests are conducted at operating pressure.
System will not function with a mechanical line leak detector installed in the pipeline.
Pipeline Capacity

For 3.0 gph (hourly) leak rate test:
Maximum of 425.84 gallons for rigid pipelines.
Maximum of 109.84 gallons for flexible pipelines.
Maximum of 535.68 gallons for hybrid combination of rigid and flexible pipelines.
For 0.2 gph (monthly) and 0.1 gph (annual) leak rate test:
Maximum of 165.08 gallons for rigid pipelines.
Maximum of 109.84 gallons for flexible pipelines.
Maximum of 267.84 gallons for hybrid combination of rigid and flexible pipelines.

Waiting Time None between delivery and testing.
Minimum between dispensing and testing.
Test Period Response time is 1 to 5 minutes for leak rate of 3.0 gph.
Response time is 48 minutes to 270 minutes for leak rate of 0.2 gph.
Response time is 48 minutes to 489 minutes for leak rate of 0.1 gph.
Test data are acquired and recorded by a microprocessor.
Calculations are automatically performed by the microprocessor.
System Features

8600 Series console used in this evaluation with Series 8590 DPLLD.
Permanent installation on pipeline.
Automatic testing of pipeline.
Preset threshold.
Pump shutdown (optional), message display and alarm activation if leak is declared.

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