Tanknology - NDE
TLD-1 (for Flexible Pipelines)


Certification Leak rate of 0.1 gph with PD = 99.7% and PFA = 0.3%.
Leak Threshold 0.05 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.
Specification System tests flexible pipelines. 
Tests are conducted at 150% operating pressure. 
Mechanical line leak detector must be removed or isolated from pipeline for duration of test.
Pipeline Capacity Maximum of 119.4 gallons.
Waiting Time Testing may begin immediately after system is installed in the line.
Test Period Minimum of 30 minutes. Consistent readings for at least three readings must be obtained for a valid test. The actual test time will depend on line size and temperature conditions at the site. The data from this evaluation suggests that the actual minimum test time is 50 minutes for a line of this capacity.
Test may not be ended until pass/fail criteria set by manufacturer has been met. 
Pipe deflection, vapor pockets, and large temperature differences may produce inconsistent readings. 
Testing must continue until stable conditions are present. 
Test data are acquired and recorded manually.
Comments Enviroflex pipeline wih a bulk modulus* of 8,359 was used during evaluation.
