Red Jacket PPM 4000, RLM 9000



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 2.0 gph for leak rate of 3.0 gph. 
0.1 gph for leak rate of 0.2 gph. 
0.047 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, methanol and methanol blends, ethanol blends up through E100, biodiesel blends B6-B20 meeting ASTM D7467, biodiesel B100 meeting ASTM D6751. 
Specification System tests pressurized fiberglass and steel pipelines. 
Tests are conducted at operating pressure.
Pipeline Capacity Maximum of 55.1 gallons.
Waiting Time None between delivery and testing. 
None between dispensing and testing.
Test Period Response time is 2 minutes for leak rate of 3.0 gph. 
Response time is 10 minutes to 3 hours for leak rate of 0.2 gph. 
Response time is 2 hours, 30 minutes to 3 hours 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 Permanent installation on pipeline. 
Automatic testing of pipeline. Preset threshold. 
Single test to determine if pipeline is leaking. 
Recording and display of day, date, and time of conclusive test. 
Pump shutdown, 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.
Comments PPM 4000 is a stand alone automatic electronic line leak detector. RLM 9000 is a combination of RLM 5000 automatic tank gauge and PPM 4000 automatic electronic line leak detector.
