CONTINUOUS PRESSURIZED PIPING LEAK DETECTION METHOD
||Leak rate of 0.2 gph at
operating pressure with PD = 99.9% and PFA = <0.1%.
*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.
||0.08 gph for leak rate of 0.2 gph.
Although the system reports a quantitative leak rate internally, it only
reports a pass or fail to the tank system operator.

pressurized rigid, flexible, or combination rigid and flexible pipelines.
Tests are conducted at operating pressure by statistically adding
increments of stable testing until a test has enough data to be completed.

of 4 inch line; 671 feet of 3 3/8 inch line).
Maximum of 95.4 gallons for flexible pipelines

Maximum of 415.8
gallons for combination rigid and flexible pipelines (the capacity of the
flexible component cannot exceed 95.4 gallons).
Maximum of 176 gallons for Franklin Fueling Systems UPP semi-rigid pipeline. (example: 513 feet of 3 inch line; 1892 feet of 1 1/2 inch line).

records may cover 10 days for ST (short term) CPPLDS to 30 days for LT (long
term) CPPLDS dependent on dispensing, with an average of 16.22 days.
The ST array continuously contains 10 days of data, and the LT array
continuously contains 30 days of data that are rolled over as additional
data is acquired.
given to the ALLD test, if present. If not present, it defaults to
SLLD and prints the ST result.
It will only print
the LT report if there is no ST test available for the month.
Test data are
acquired and recorded by a microprocessor.

The SLLD (Statistical Line Leak Detection) is an
added capability for the TS-LS500 and TS-LS500E Automatic Line Leak Detector
(ALLD). The ALLD still performs the 3.0 gph tests, and with enough
quiet time, the 0.2 gph and 0.1 gph tests; the SLLD is only used for 0.2 gph
leak detection if the ALLD did not have enough quiet time to perform that
indicator light and alarm activation if leak is declared for 3.0 gph and
0.2 gph tests.
