Description of Pattern
The FE Petro model STP(SAA)150 submersible turbine pump (Figure 1) is intended
for supplying fuel to one or more Commission-approved fuel dispensers operating
with a Veeder-Root model PLLD electronic line leak detection device.
The pump may also incorporate a telescopic type length adjustment to suit a particular
tank diameter range – VL1 designation is for small tank diameter, VL2 is for medium
tank diameter and VL3 is for large tank diameter.
The operation of the pump (STP) is controlled via switchboard equipment which
consists of an FE Petro model STP-DHIB unit, an FE Petro STP-SC unit, or other
compatible units.
1.1 Field of Operation
•
The submersible turbine pump (Figure 1) is designed to supply liquid to a fuel
dispenser at a maximum flow rate of 321 L/min and to detect leakage of fuel.
•
The PLLD electronic leak detector (Figure 2) is designed to automatically check
and detect a leak equivalent to 11.4 L/min after every dispenser delivery. By this
means the system ensures that the STP will be shut off whenever a leak greater
than 11.4 L/min is detected.
•
The submersible turbine pump is for use with fuel dispensers approved for
accuracy class 0.5, metering liquids having a dynamic viscosity in the range 0.5
to 20 mPa.s (at 20oC).
•
For use with fuel dispensers which are Commission-approved for use with
submersible turbine pumps.
•
The piping, the size and the number of pumps are installed such that, for all
possible operating combinations of deliveries, each measurement transducer is
maintained within the approved flow rate range.
•
The submersible turbine pump is installed in a manner such that the metering
system is at all times maintained at a positive pressure.
1.2 Verification/Certification Mark and Sealing Provision
The verification/certification mark is applied to the fuel dispenser in accordance with
the requirements of the approval documentation for the dispenser to which the pattern
approved herein is installed; there is no separate requirement for the application of
the mark to, nor for the sealing of, the pattern.

TEST PROCEDURE
Instruments should be tested in accordance with any tests included in the approval
documentation for the system in which the pattern is fitted, and in accordance with
any relevant tests specified in the Uniform Test Procedures.
Maximum Permissible Errors
The maximum permissible errors applicable are those specified for the flowmetering
system in which the pattern is fitted, as stated in the approval documentation for the
system.
1.
Minimum Flow Rate Test
Note:
This test should be carried out on initial verification. Thereafter, it need not
be done at every verification/certification but should be done periodically at
the discretion of the verifying authority.
The minimum flow rate test is performed by simultaneously running either all hoses
on all fuel dispensers connected to a particular submersible turbine pump (where the
number of hoses is 6 or less) or by simultaneously running between 2/3 and 3/4 of all
such hoses (where the number of hoses is more than 6). For the purpose of this test,
where two or more pumps are connected in parallel, they shall be considered as one
pump. Check that the lowest flow rate is not less than the minimum flow rate specified
in the approval documentation for the dispenser.

Flow Interlock Test
For systems where more than one fuel dispenser (or meter #) is connected to the
same submersible turbine pump check that while an authorised delivery is in progress,
it is not possible to obtain flow through any other unauthorised meter connected to
the same pump.
Begin a delivery from one meter. While this delivery is in progress, attempt to make
a delivery from a 2nd meter (meter 2) connected to the same pump WITHOUT meter
2 first being authorised (either locally or remotely) and WITHOUT the indicator reset
cycle for meter 2 first being initiated; the delivery for meter 2 should not be possible.
(# – in the case of fuel dispensers with more than one meter)
Note:
3.
To maintain a meter in unauthorised mode while attempting the above test,
remove the nozzle from its normal hang-up position while holding down the
nozzle hang-up latch so that the indicator reset cycle is not activated.
Electronic Leak Detector Test
Operation of the electronic leak detection system is tested by the following procedure:
Note:
This Test should be carried out on initial verification. Thereafter, it need not
be done at every verification/certification but should be done periodically at
the discretion of the relevant verifying authority.
This test should only be conducted in the presence of an authorised technician.
All air must be out of the system for the leak detection system to work properly.
All fittings should be tight.
Further instructions and safety information is provided in the installation/
operation manuals for the electronic leak detection system.
3.1 General
(a)
Ensure that the submersible turbine pump is not turned on during this operation
by disabling at the STP control box. Connect a test fixture (pressure gauge and
test valve) to the test port of the impact valve (‘safety shut-off valve’) of the fuel
dispenser.
(b)
Connect power to the pump at the control box.
(c)
Start the test by closing the test valve. The line pressure should be zero (0) as
indicated on the pressure gauge. Start the submersible pump and dispense at
least 15 litres of fuel to remove any air introduced by installing the test fixture.
(d)
Installation is now ready for the leak tests.

3.2 Standard Leak Test
(a)
Close the test valve and reconnect the power to the submersible pump. Make
sure that all the nozzles are closed.
Run the pump from the electronic leak detector control panel by pressing “TEST”,
then the pump number, and then “ENTER”. The pump will now run for
approximately 5 seconds and then stop. During the running of the pump the
pressure on the pressure gauge is approximately 220 kPa; at rest the pressure
should be approximately 80 kPa.
(b)
Open the test valve so that a fine, steady, unbroken stream of fuel is observed
to flow from the test valve. The pressure drop from 80 kPa to 35 kPa should
take between 10 seconds and 30 seconds.
Between approximately 300 ml and 400 ml of fuel should drain from the system.
SIGNIFICANTLY LESS OR MORE INDICATES A SYSTEM FAULT.
(c)
Leave the test valve open. The submersible pump will automatically start and
run briefly (3-5 seconds with the pressure at approximately 220 kPa) and than
stop. The pressure will drop immediately to 80 kPa and steadily drop to 35 kPa.
An audible alarm will sound and “PUMP ALARM PUMP NR...” will appear on the
display of the electronic leak detector control panel. The electronic leak detector
will shut down the respective pump.
(d)
Pump operation after alarm is affected by programming – attempts to deliver
fuel from the nozzle will either be temporarilly or permanently inhibited until the
system is reset to normal operation. The pressure on the gauge should still be
0 kPa. The pump is switched off and should only be restarted by an authorised
technician.
3.3 Catastrophic Leak Test
(a)
Close the test valve and reconnect the power to the submersible pump. Make
sure that all the nozzles are closed.
Run the pump from the electronic leak detector control panel by pressing “TEST”,
then the pump number, and then “ENTER”. The pump will now run for
approximately 5 seconds and then stop. During the running of the pump the
pressure on the pressure gauge is approximately 220 kPa; at rest the pressure
should be approximately 80 kPa.
(b)
Open the test valve quickly so that the pressure drop from 80 kPa to 35 kPa
takes less than 8 seconds.
Between approximately 300 mL and 400 mL of fuel should drain from the system.
SIGNIFICANTLY LESS OR MORE INDICATES A SYSTEM FAULT.

(c)
An audible alarm will sound and “PUMP ALARM PUMP NR...” will appear on the
display of the electronic leak detector control panel. The electronic leak detector
will shut down the respective pump.
(d)
Pump operation after alarm is affected by programming – attempts to deliver
fuel from the nozzle will either be temporarilly or permanently inhibited until the
system is reset to normal operation. The pressure on the gauge should still be
0 kPa. The pump is switched off and should only be restarted by an authorised
technician.
3.4 Further Tests
Repeat tests 3.2 and 3.3 for other submersible turbine pumps.
3.5 At Completion of Electronic Leak Detector Testing
Disable the pump at the control box. Remove the test fixture and replace the plug in
the test port. Enable the pump, and dispense at least 15 L of fuel from the dispenser
to remove any air introduced into the system.
