Oil Tank Precision Tightness Testing

"The people in the office were friendly and very helpful answering all of my questions. I was impressed with the tester who came to the house"

The EZY 3 Locator Plus precision test involves creating a slight vacuum (negative pressure) within the tank and associated piping (system). The vacuum is created by first closing the far ends of the lines that are attached to the tank (e.g., fill, vent, supply and return lines), then gently drawing the air out from within the system using a pump. At no time does the vacuum applied to the tank exceed the normal operating levels of the tank system. If a hole or crack in the system is present, it will cause the vacuum to degrade which is then detected by both a very sensitive acoustic probe and signal processor, and a pressure monitoring device. The probe is installed in the “dry” portion of the tank – the area containing no oil – and is used to determine if the leak is above or below the liquid level. Leak(s) above the liquid level (called a dry leak) are detected as a “hissing” sound, while leak(s) below the liquid level (wet leak) are detected as a “bubbling” sound. A tank system fails a test when either of these sounds are detected as there is no “degree” of failure associated with this testing method.
