Certification Leak rate of 0.1 gph with PD = 99.0% and PFA = 1%.
"If a method meets the requirement for detecting a leak rate of 0.1 gph, it will meet the requirement for 0.2 gph.", according to "Standard Test Procedures for Evaluating Leak Detection Methods: Statistical Inventory Reconciliation Methods", EPA/530/UST-90/007, June 1990, Section 7.2.3, page 30.
Leak Threshold If the absolute value of the calculated leak rate (gain or loss) is less than the leak threshold and the minimum detectable leak rate is less than or equal to 0.1 gph (0.2 gph for the 0.2 gph test), the test result is "pass." If the absolute value of the calculated leak rate is greater than or equal to the leak threshold, the result is "fail." If the minimum detectable leak rate exceeds 0.1 gph (0.2 gph for the 0.2 gph test) and the absolute value of the calculated leak rate is less than the leak threshold, the test result is "inconclusive."
Applicability Gasoline, diesel.
Other more viscous liquids may be tested after consultation with the vendor.
Tank Capacity Maximum of 18,000 gallons.
Data Requirement Minimum of 90 days of product level and flow through data are required before making the first evaluation.
Following the first evaluation, subsequent evaluations are made based on minimum of 30 days of data.
Comments Not evaluated using manifolded tank systems.
Of 41 data sets submitted for evaluation, 5 were inconclusive.
Median monthly throughput of tanks evaluated was 14,600 gallons.
Leak rates of 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2 gph were evaluated.
Data sets evaluated were supplied by vendor.
