PEI/RP300-09: Installation and Testing of Vapor Recovery Systems
This 53-page manual provides concise instructions for installation and testing of Stage I and Stage II equipment. The Recommended Practices for Installation and Testing of Vapor Recovery Systems at Vehicle Fueling Sites focuses only on vapor-recovery systems located at vehicle fueling facilities. It has been completely revised, reorganized and expanded to include a chapter on decommissioning Stage II equipment plus the most recent revisions by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to the vapor-recovery testing procedures. RP300-09 supersedes and replaces all previous versions.
The manual contains chapters, drawings and photographs on all phases of proper vapor-recovery equipment installation and testing along with a new chapter of definitions. Included are chapters covering Stage I and Stage II vapor-recovery systems, Stage II vapor-recovery system components, aboveground and underground piping and fittings, pressure decay testing, dynamic backpressure testing, air to liquid volume ratio testing, electrical installation, testing and inspection, and documentation and training. There are also appendices presenting pressure decay test tables, sample forms for recording test data and an appendix of documents used for reference.
