Caldwell Systems Corp.

Tank Manager Monitoring Systems with CITLDS
(Ultrasonic Probe)


Certification Leak rate of 0.2 gph with PD = 100% and PFA = 0%.
Leak Threshold Not applicable for qualitative methods.
Method is qualitative and reports a result of “pass” or “fail”.
Applicability Gasoline, diesel, aviation fuel, solvents, waste oil, fuel oil #4, water.
Other liquids with known coefficients of expansion and density may be tested after consultation with the manufacturer.
Tank Capacity Maximum of 18,000 gallons for single tanks
Maximum of 54,000 gallons cumulative capacity for manifolded tank systems.
Minimum product level required to conduct a test is 20 inches.
Throughput Monthly maximum of 147,136 gallons.
Waiting Time Minimum of 4 hours stabilization time is allowed between delivery and data collection.
Test Period Data collection time ranges from 3 to 27 days.
Data sampling frequency is every 1 minute.
System collects data at naturally occurring product levels without interfering with normal tank operation, and discards data from unstable periods when system performs test.
Temperature Average for product is determined by a minimum of 5 sensors.
Water Sensor Must be used to detect water ingress.
Minimum detectable water level in the tank is 0.736 inch.
Minimum detectable change in water level is 0.031 inch.
Calibration Probe must be checked annually and, if necessary, calibrated in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
Comments Evaluated using both single and manifolded tank systems with probes in each tank.
For valid monthly testing, a conclusive test report must be produced for each tank every month. System warns operator if there are no “ passing” tests completed during the month. For very active tanks, a tank shut down may become necessary in order for the system to collect enough quiet-time data for a test.
Constant and variable leaks were mathematically induced into tight tank test records, which were collected by systems installed at various active tank sites.
The database for evaluation of the system included sites with vapor recovery and blending dispensers. Tanks used in this evaluation contained gasoline and diesel.
