The Vapor Pressure Sensor
The Veeder-Root PMC system requires one Vapor Pressure Sensor per GDF installed
into one of the dispensers located closest to the tanks (If a row of dispensers are equal
distance from the tank pad and within 10’ of each other, any dispenser can be used) in
accordance with the applicable ARB Approved IOM Manual. For vapor vent stack
installation, determine which vapor vent stack line is closest to the tank being monitored.
Select this line for the addition of the pressure sensor. The connection must be BELOW
the Veeder-Root Carbon Canister if equipped in accordance with the applicable section
of the ARB Approved IOM Manual.
Caution: Installation of the pressure sensor on the vapor vent stack is only allowed at
facilities equipped with a Veeder-Root Vapor Polisher or VST Green Machine or VST
Membrane processors.. The Vapor Pressure Sensor is an intrinsically safe sensor that
is wired to the TLS Console Smart Sensor Module via a conduit dedicated to TLS
Console low-voltage sensors. Figure 2B-9 shows a typical image of the vapor pressure
sensor and optional dryer tube. Figure 2B-10 shows a typical image of the optional
wireless components. Figure 2B-11 shows a typical wired sensor dispenser installation
configuration. Figure 2B-12 shows a typical wired sensor vapor vent stack installation
configuration. Figure 2B-13 shows the wireless vapor pressure sensor dispenser
installation configuration.
RF Wireless Components
The Veeder-Root wireless components must be installed in accordance with Section 19: TLS
RF Wireless 2 System (W2) Installation and Maintenance Guide of the ARB Approved
IOM. The wireless system consists of the following devices (Figure 2B-11):

e.
TLS RF Console-2 Box
RF Transmitter-2
RF Transmitter Battery Pack
RF Repeater-2
RF Receiver-2
The transmitter automatically identifies the type of sensor (e.g. Carbon Canister or Flow Meter)
connected to it and polls it periodically. The collected data is converted to radio format and
transmitted through air to receiver. The TLS RF provides this data to TLS Console on next poll
by TLS Console. To prevent adjacent GDF with wireless equipment from interfering with each
others transmissions, dip switches on the Transmitter and Receiver are used to configure a site
ID. The Repeater is not required, but may be installed as needed to provide a second path for
the wireless signal traveling from Transmitter to Receiver.

Liquid Removal Test Procedure
Definitions common to all certification and test procedures are in:
D-200
Definitions for Vapor Recovery Procedures
For the purpose of this procedure, the term "ARB" refers to the California Air Resources Board,
and the term "Executive Officer" refers to the ARB Executive Officer or his or her authorized
representative or designate.
1.
PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
1.1
2.
This procedure is used to quantify the removal rate of liquid from the vapor passage
of a Phase II balance system hose equipped with a liquid removal device. This
procedure provides a method to determine compliance with the liquid removal
requirements specified in ARB Executive Orders VR-203 and VR-204 and any
subsequent amendments or revisions.
PRINCIPLE AND SUMMARY OF TEST PROCEDURE
2.1
This test procedure provides two options to determine the compliance of liquid
removal devices. Under option 1 (short version), liquid in the vapor path of a coaxial
hose is drained and measured. If the volume of liquid drained equals or exceeds 25
ml, a liquid removal test is conducted. For those hoses with less than 25 ml drained,
no further testing is required. Under option 2 (long version), all hoses are evaluated
regardless of the volume of liquid drained. Option 2 includes a prewetting and wall
adhesion step. Both options test the liquid removal device by introducing gasoline
into the vapor path of the coaxial hose through the nozzle bellows. After 7.5 gallons
of gasoline is dispensed, the amount of gasoline remaining in the hose is measured
and the liquid removal rate is determined. The district shall specify which testing
option is to be used.
Caution: When draining gasoline from the vapor side of the hose, make
sure the dispenser is not activated. Gasoline is drained from
the vapor side of the hose by compressing the bellows and
engaging the fuel lever (note the nozzle vapor valve is on the
same stem as the fuel valve). If the dispenser is activated,
gasoline in the fuel hose may be pressurized when engaging
the fuel lever.
3.
BIASES AND INTERFERENCES
3.1. Slits or tears in the hose or nozzle vapor path may bias the results towards compliance.
3.2. This test shall not be conducted on any fueling point where the hanging hardware is
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 5 – VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-2defective as identified in Exhibit 2.
3.3. Any spillage of gasoline invalidates the test for any volumes that are required to be
measured or recorded.
3.4. A breach of the inner product hose may introduce additional gasoline into the outer
vapor path resulting in a larger volume drained than introduced.
3.5. Not having the liquid extraction device (indicated by the mark on the outside of the
house) at the bottom of the hose loop during liquid removal testing, as shown in Figure
1, will bias the results towards failure.
3.6. If testing a fueling point with a VST Model VST-EVR-NB nozzle, the test procedure
requires the use of VST’s nozzle spout plug, P/N VST-STP-100 as shown in Figure 2.
If testing a fueling point with a EMCO Model A4005EVR nozzle, the test procedure
requires the use of EMCO’s nozzle spout plug, P/N 494635EVR as shown in Figure
3. This tool is used to plug the spout when draining liquid from the vapor side of the
hose. Not plugging the spout may bias the results towards failure. Nicks, cuts, or
tears in the plug o-rings will bias the results towards failure.
3.7. Dispensing rates not between 6.0 and 10.0 gallons per minute (GPM) invalidates the
test.
4.
5.
SENSITIVITY, RANGE, AND PRECISION
4.1
The range of measurement of the liquid removal rate is dependent upon the range of
the graduated cylinder used for testing.
4.2
To ensure precision, graduated cylinder readings shall be measured at the liquid
level meniscus.
EQUIPMENT
5.1. Nozzle Spout Plug: If testing a fueling point with a VST Model VST-EVR-NB nozzle,
use VST’s spout plug, P/N VST-STP-100 (Figure 2). If testing a fueling point with a
EMCO Model A4005EVR nozzle, use EMCO’s nozzle spout plug, P/N 494635EVR as
shown in Figure 3.
5.2. Stopwatch. Use a stopwatch accurate to within 0.2 seconds.
5.3. Funnels. Large and small gasoline compatible, non-breakable, funnels with
dimensions similar to those as shown in Figure 4, or equivalent.
5.4. Graduated Cylinders. Gasoline compatible, non-breakable 0-25ml, 0-100ml, 0-250
ml, and 0-500 ml graduated cylinders with stable base plates. The 25ml cylinder may
be necessary to quantify volumes of liquid less than 20 ml.
5.5. Gasoline Test Tank. (Optional) A portable tank, meeting fire safety requirements for
use with gasoline, may be used to receive the gasoline dispensed during testing.
The tank shall have sufficient volume so that at least 10.0 gallons may be dispensed
prior to activating the primary shutoff mechanism of the nozzle. When using a
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 5 – VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-3gasoline test tank, ensure that a ground strap is used and that it is properly
connected to an acceptable ground. To minimize testing-related emissions,
vehicle refueling events should be used for this procedure whenever feasible.
5.6. Traffic Cones. Use traffic cones to encircle the area where testing is conducted.
5.7. Field Data Sheet. Use the appropriate data sheet to record liquid removal test
information. Forms 1 and 2 serve as examples; districts may require modified
versions.
5.8. Gasoline Container. Use a portable fuel container equipped with a tight fitting cap, of at
least 1.0 gallon capacity.
NOTE: THIS TEST PROCEDURE PROVIDES TWO OPTIONS TO DETERMINE
COMPLIANCE OF LIQUID REMOVAL DEVICES. THE DISTRICT SHALL SPECIFY WHICH
TESTING OPTION IS TO BE USED
6.
OPTION 1 (SHORT VERSION)
PRE-TEST PROCEDURE
6.1
Verify that the 500 ml graduated cylinder is empty. Position the large funnel into the
graduated cylinder.
6.2
Remove the nozzle from the dispenser. Do not activate dispenser! If testing a
fueling point with a VST Model VST-EVR-NB nozzle, install VST’s spout plug, P/N
VST-STP-100 in the tip of the spout (Figure 2). If testing a fueling point with an
EMCO Model A4005EVR nozzle, install EMCO’s nozzle spout plug, P/N 494635EVR
in the tip of the spout (Figure 3). Carefully tilt the spout into the funnel/graduated
cylinder assembly.
6.3
Lower the nozzle and funnel/graduated cylinder assembly as close to the ground as
possible. “Walk out” the hose while keeping the nozzle lowered and hose fully
extended. The hose shall slope downward from the dispenser toward the nozzle.
6.4
Do not activate dispenser! Open the nozzle’s vapor check valve by compressing
the bellows and engaging the fuel lever. Allow 20 seconds for all liquid to drain. Use
caution to avoid spillage.
6.5
Remove VST’s or EMCO’s spout plug and return the nozzle to the dispenser and
measure the volume of liquid drained. If the volume drained is less than 200 ml,
transfer the liquid into an appropriately sized graduated cylinder. For example, if 40
ml of liquid was drained, use the 100 ml graduated cylinder to take the measurement.
6.6
Record the amount of liquid drained on Form 1 (“PRE-TEST”).
6.7
If the volume drained is greater than or equal to 25 ml, proceed to Section 6.8 of the
procedure. Hoses with greater than 25 ml drained are considered to be pre-wetted. If
the amount drained is less than 25 ml, proceed to the next nozzle/hose to be
evaluated and repeat Section 6.1-6.6
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 5 – VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-4TEST PROCEDURE (FOR HOSES WITH GREATER THAN 25 ML DRAINED)
6.8
Pour 150 ml to 175 ml of gasoline into the 250 ml graduated cylinder. Measure and
record this volume on Form 1 (VI).
6.9
Remove the nozzle from the dispenser and position the nozzle upright so that the

Nozzle Bag Test Procedure
Verification of the integrity of the VST or EMCO EVR nozzle vapor valve shall be
performed on installed nozzles by use of the following test.
1. If there is little or no pressure or vacuum in the headspace of the underground
storage tank(s), a defective nozzle vapor valve may not be evident. Therefore, it
is recommended that this test be conducted while the pressure in the
underground storage tanks in not equal to zero, preferably greater than positive
one inch of water column (+1.0”WC) or less than negative one inch of water
column (-1.0”WC) vacuum.
2. Seal nozzle(s) at the gasoline dispensing facility (GDF) in a plastic bag, using
tape or other means to secure the bag around the base of the nozzle (see Figure
1). Any plastic bag large enough to enclose the nozzle and having a thickness of
no greater than 2 mils can be used.
2. Observe the bagged nozzle(s) for 30 seconds.
3. Any nozzle where the bag can be seen visually expanding or collapsing has a
defective vapor valve and is not in compliance with Exhibit 2.
4. Record the test results on the “Nozzle Bag Test Results” form provided in this
Exhibit. Districts may require use of an alternate form, provided that the alternate
form includes the same minimum parameters.
5. Remove the bags from all the nozzles and return the nozzles to the dispenser
holsters.

Equipment, Range and Accuracy
4.1
Digital Manometer (Electronic Pressure Measuring Device)
A digital (electronic) manometer with 0.01 inches WC, or better resolution. The
sensor must have a minimum measuring range of +/- 10 inches WC. The sensor
must also be accurate to 0.05 inches WC for any pressure measurement made
during the prescribed tests. For a manometer with a +/- 10 inches WC
measurement range, this requires a 0.25% basic accuracy.
4.2
Oral Syringe (used in determining processor activation pressure)
Use a 3 cubic centimeter (cc) or 6cc oral syringe or equivalent that is capable of
introducing air pressure at approximately 0.1 inches WC increments up to a
maximum pressure of 0.5 inches WC (see Figure 1).

Calibration Requirements
5.1
A copy of the most current calibration of the electronic pressure measuring
device shall be kept with the equipment.
5.2
All electronic pressure measuring devices shall be bench tested for accuracy
using a reference gauge, incline manometer or National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) traceable standard at least once every 180 consecutive
days. Accuracy checks shall be performed, with nitrogen, at a minimum of three
(3) points (e.g., 20, 50 and 80 percent of full scale) each for both positive and
negative pressure readings. Accuracy shall meet the requirements of Section 4.
Pre-Test Procedure
6.1
Turn on digital manometer and allow instrument to warm up for five minutes.
6.2
Zero out digital manometer using adjustment pod on top of instrument in
accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. Drift may be minimized by
re-zeroing immediately after use by venting both pressure ports to atmosphere
until the display reads exactly zero.
6.3
Prepare test assembly as shown in Figure 1. Lubricate seal of oral syringe
plunger with petroleum jelly (or other lubricant). Use Tygon tubing (or equivalent)
from the oral syringe (or equivalent) to the pressure sensor and to the digital
manometer as shown in Figure 1. Plug or cap the end of the Tygon tubing (used
to connect to the tee on the pressure sensor) and pressurize test assembly to
approximately 2.0-5.0 inches WC for at least 5 seconds. There shall be no
indications of vapor leaks when using liquid leak detection solution.

-36.4
7
Remove the cap from the ambient reference port of the Vapor Pressure Sensor
valve and connect the Tygon tubing (or equivalent) of the test assembly to the
tee on the Vapor Pressure Sensor Valve as shown in Figure 1.
Test Procedure
7.1
Close the ball valve located at the tee to the vapor pressure sensor to isolate the
vapor pressure sensor from the UST ullage (see Atmospheric Valve Position in
Figure 2).
7.2
Slowly press the oral syringe (or equivalent) until a pressure of 0.10 inches WC is
obtained. Maintain this pressure for at least 5 seconds. Does the VST processor
activate? If the processor does not activate, continue increasing pressure at 0.1
inches WC intervals and hold for at least 5 seconds per interval or until the
processor activates, up to a maximum pressure of 0.5 inches WC.
If the GDF is equipped with a wireless vapor pressure sensor (Veeder Root part
number 861190-201), the pressure sensor value observed at the TLS console is
refreshed on a less frequent basis relative to conventional “wired” vapor pressure
sensors due to communication through the wireless components. For wireless
vapor pressure sensors, the technician should hold the desired pressure for
approximately 60 seconds between every 0.1 inch WC interval.
NOTE: Listen for audible indication that the processor activated (or turned on).

7.3
Record the VST processor activation pressure on Form 1, Data Form for VST
Processor Activation Pressure Test.
7.4
Verify that the processor activation pressure value is less than or equal to 0.4
inches WC. If the pressure value is not less than or equal to 0.4 inches WC, the
VST processor is not in compliance with the activation pressure requirements of
Exhibit 2.
7.5
Replace the cap on the ambient reference port of the Vapor Pressure Sensor
valve. Restore the Vapor Pressure Sensor valve by turning it 90 degrees so that
the flow arrows point to both the Vapor Pressure Sensor sensing port and the
UST vapor space sensing line (see Normal Valve Position in Figure 2).

Purpose and Applicability
1.1
2.
The purpose of this test procedure is to determine if the Veeder-Root Vapor
Pressure Sensor (listed in Exhibit 1) is operating in accordance with the pressure
sensor requirements of Exhibit 2. This procedure is used:
1.1.1
To determine the measured ullage pressure in underground gasoline
storage tanks (USTs) and compare to the Veeder-Root Vapor Pressure
Sensor (Vapor Pressure Sensor) reading at the TLS console.
1.1.2
To determine whether the Vapor Pressure Sensor complies with the

Principle and Summary of Test Procedure
Determining UST Pressure –
If the Vapor Pressure Sensor is installed on the vapor return line of a dispenser closest
to the USTs, the pressure of the USTs is determined at the Phase I vapor recovery
adaptor (dry break assembly) with a vapor coupler test assembly as shown in Figures 2
and 3 of TP-201.3 (Determination of 2 Inch WC Static Pressure Performance of Vapor
Recovery Systems of Dispensing Facilities) or a modified dust cap test assembly as
shown in Figures 10-1 and 10-2 of this exhibit. The modified dust cap test assembly is
equipped with a center probe, which opens the dry break, and a quick connect fitting that
is connected to an electronic pressure measuring device or digital manometer. The
modified dust cap test assembly should open the dry break with minimal venting of the
USTs. This test can be performed while product is being dispensed into motor vehicles.
If the Vapor Pressure Sensor is installed on the vent stack, the pressure of the USTs is
determined at the vent stack test port as shown in Figure 10-6. The vent stack test port
is equipped with a quick connect fitting that is connected to an electronic pressure
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 10 – VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-2measuring device or digital manometer. This test can be performed while product is
being dispensed into motor vehicles.
Determining Ambient Pressure - The Vapor Pressure Sensor is subjected to ambient
pressure by turning the Vapor Pressure Sensor valve, which is located on the vent stack
or in the dispenser closest to the tanks, to the atmospheric valve position as shown in
Figure 10-3. This test can be performed while product is being dispensed into motor
vehicles.

The range of the Vapor Pressure Sensor is between positive (+5.0) and negative
five (-5.0) inches water column. If the headspace of the underground storage
tank is under a vacuum of greater than negative five inches water column (i.e.-6,
-7, -8, etc.), the results of section 8.4 could be biased toward non compliance.
Under such condition, the vacuum level should be relieved to a value between
negative five and negative two inches water column by depressing the poppet of
the Phase I vapor adaptor. Once an adequate amount of air has been ingested
into the headspace, the remaining vacuum must be allowed to stabilize for a
minimum of fifteen (15) minutes before taking a reading.
3.4
If the Vapor Pressure Sensor is located at the vapor return line of the dispenser,
the UST pressure must be determined at the Phase I vapor adaptor as shown in
Figures 10-1 and 10-2 of this exhibit.
3.5
If the Vapor Pressure Sensor is located at the vent stack, the UST pressure must
be determined at the vent stack test port as shown in Figure 10-6.

For the purpose of this procedure, the term "ARB" refers to the California Air Resources
Board, and the term "ARB Executive Officer" refers to the Executive Officer of the ARB
or his or her authorized representative or designate.
1.
PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
This test verifies the pressure integrity of the vapor polisher, confirms that the
operating pressure is within certification parameters at a known flow rate, and
verifies the readings of the various thermometer elements and atmospheric pressure
sensor. Proper function of the valve is confirmed during the leakage and flow tests.
The pressure integrity test will identify leaks that can be caused by valve or seal
failure, loose fittings, cracking or structural damage. The flow test identifies any
restrictions that can be caused by dirty filters, clogged passageways, contaminated
carbon or any other restriction or collapse of flow passages. The thermometer test
will identify a failed sensor element that could lead to reduced performance in vapor
containment or pressure management. The atmospheric pressure sensor test
verifies the accuracy of that sensor.
The station may remain open (normal fuel dispensing, deliveries, etc.) while
conducting this procedure.

PRINCIPLE AND SUMMARY OF TEST PROCEDURE
2.1
Pressure Integrity Test
This test confirms that the vapor polisher is capable of maintaining system
pressures within certification limits. The leak tightness of the polisher is
checked at 8 inches water column (WC). Proper closure of the vapor valve is
verified during this test.
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 11 - VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-2-
2.2
Flow Test
This test confirms flow characteristics through the vapor polisher are
maintained within certification limits. The back-pressure across the polisher
is checked at a flow rate of 18.0 standard cubic feet per hour (scfh). Proper
opening of the vapor valve is verified during this test.
2.3
Thermometer Test
This test verifies that the temperature sensing elements are functioning
correctly and indicating valid temperature readings within acceptable ranges.
Thermometers are checked against each other as an indication of valid
readings. If criteria are not met, accuracy of the thermometers is checked
against a calibrated reference thermometer.
2.4
Atmospheric Pressure Sensor Test
This test verifies that the atmospheric pressure sensing element is
functioning correctly and indicating valid readings within an acceptable range.
The sensor is checked against a local independent source (e.g., U.S.
Weather Service, airports, Districts etc.)
3.
BIASES AND INTERFERENCES
3.1
The pressure integrity test should not be conducted within 2 hours of Vapor
Polisher loading or purging to minimize affects of thermal decay in the carbon
bed. Thermal conditions created by heavy loading of the vapor polisher can
cause the test pressure to collapse as it cools.
3.2
The thermometer test should not be conducted within 2 hours after a delivery
into any tank that is connected to the vapor recovery system. This allows
sufficient time for the fuel and ullage temperatures to equalize in the event
that fuel is dropped into the tank at significantly different temperatures from
the ambient UST temperature.
3.3
If Veeder-Root’s “Maintenance Tracker” is installed and enabled, access to
the “diagnostic mode” and “set-up mode” of the TLS Console is prohibited
unless a Maintenance Tracker Technician Key or personal computer
equipped with Veeder-Root’s ISD Setup Tool Software Version 1.09 or higher
is made available. Maintenance Tracker is an optional security device
designed to prevent unauthorized tampering and clearing of Veeder-Root
tank monitoring and ISD alarms. Maintenance Tracker resides within the TLS
console and when enabled, a message will appear on the two line display of
the TLS console. For additional instructions on how to access the desired
parameters to complete this test procedure, see Exhibit 18; “Accessing PMC
and ISD Parameters at Gasoline Dispensing Facilities (GDFs) with VeederRoot’s “Maintenance Tracker” Security Feature Installed & Enabled”.

positive and negative pressure readings. Accuracy shall meet the
requirements of Section 4.
5.4
Thermometer calibration shall be checked at least once every 180
consecutive days using an ice bath, ambient air, and boiling water. This
accuracy check shall be conducted by comparison to a NIST traceable
measurement device. Accuracy shall meet the requirements of Section 4.
6. PRE-TEST REQUIREMENTS
Install all required testing apparatus as illustrated in Figure 1. Connect the digital
manometer using a tee to the Vapor Polisher inlet test port. Be sure the connection
is made in-line with the 3-way valve. Connect the nitrogen tank via the flow control
valve and meter to the tee at the polisher inlet test port. Be sure the connection is
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 11 - VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-4made at right angles to the 3-way valve connection so that flow must go through at a
90 degree corner.
7. TEST PROCEDURE
7.1
Pressure Integrity Test: At the TLS console in the GDF kiosk, confirm if the
valve has been closed for two hours by checking the date and time when the
valve was closed in the IV8000 RS232 command (see example below and
VR-203 IOM Section 15, Viewing PMC Reports via RS-232 Connection or
VR-204 IOM Section 12, Viewing ISD Reports via RS-232 Connection).
Manually close the vapor valve in the PMC Diagnostic menu (VR-203 IOM
Section 15, PMC Diagnostic Menus, or VR-204 IOM Section 12, PMC
Diagnostic Menus). If the valve had not already been closed for at least two
(2) hours then wait two hours before beginning the Pressure Integrity Test.
Connect the test apparatus to the vapor polisher inlet by moving the inlet 3way valve to the test position. Start the nitrogen flow, at 15 to18 scfh, to
pressurize the closed polisher system to 8± 0.10 inches WC, then shut off the
flow control valve. Wait for at least 1 minute before recording first reading.
After 1 minute, record the starting pressure in inches of water column to 2
decimal places and wait for 60 seconds. Record the final pressure 60
seconds after the starting pressure. Record all results on Form 1.

RESULTS
8.1
Pressure Integrity Test
Verify that the end pressure is greater than 7.0 inches WC and that the
decrease (see Form 1) between the start and end pressures is less than
0.5 inches WC. If not the polisher is not in compliance with the Exhibit 2
leakage requirements. This is equivalent to a leakage of about 0.01 CFH
at 2 inches WC. If the decrease in pressure is greater than 0.5 inches
WC, then retest (once) to be sure it is not due to thermal loss during the
test. Correct valve function (closure and sealing) is confirmed if the
pressure decrease between the start and end of the test are less than 0.5
inches WC.
8.2
Flow Test
Verify that the pressure drop across the polisher at 18.0 scfh flow is
between 1.69 inches WC and 2.25 inches WC. If not the polisher is not in
compliance with the Exhibit 2 back pressure requirements.

Veeder-Root Vapor Polisher
Hydrocarbon Emissions Verification Test Procedure
Definitions common to all certification and test procedures are in:
D-200 Definitions for Vapor Recovery Procedures
For the purpose of this procedure, the term "ARB" refers to the California Air Resources
Board, and the term "ARB Executive Officer" refers to the Executive Officer of the ARB
or his or her authorized representative or designate.
1.
PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
This test procedure is used to verify the proper performance of the Veeder-Root Vapor
Polisher. The test determines hydrocarbon (HC) emissions under iso-butane vapor
loading conditions.
The station may remain open (normal fuel dispensing, deliveries, etc.) while conducting
this procedure.
The term “TLS Console” used throughout this Exhibit includes but is not limited to TLS350, TLS-350 Plus, TLS-350R, Red Jacket ProMax, Gilbarco EMC consoles which are
also referenced in Exhibit 1.
2.
PRINCIPLE AND SUMMARY OF TEST PROCEDURE
This procedure is used to verify proper performance of the Veeder-Root Vapor Polisher
in meeting the hydrocarbon (HC) emission specification listed in Exhibit 2. A 10% isobutane compressed gas standard is used as the inlet test gas (i.e., to provide HC flow at
the Vapor Polisher inlet) while monitoring HC emissions from the Vapor Polisher exhaust
using a portable non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) analyzer calibrated to iso-butane. The
flow through the Vapor Polisher and HC monitoring is maintained for six (6) minutes.
3.
BIASES AND INTERFERENCES
3.1
This test shall not be conducted if the Vapor Polisher percent load is greater than
80% (VR-203 IOM Section 15, PMC Diagnostic Menu, or VR-204 IOM Section
12, PMC Diagnostic Menu). If load is greater than 80% then conduct the manual
purge procedure in Appendix A.
3.2
Exhibit 11 (Vapor Polisher operability tests) must be conducted prior to
conducting the Exhibit 12 test to assure valid results.
3.3
Catalytic bead HC sensors shall not be used for this test due to the absence of
air in the inlet test gas.

PRE-TEST REQUIREMENTS
6.1
Follow the HC analyzer manufacturer’s procedure for instrument start-up and
warm-up.
6.2
Check the zero reading of the HC analyzer using ambient air. If the result is
greater than 1,000 ppm (0.1% by volume) then re-zero the analyzer per the
manufacturer’s recommended procedures. Record results on Form 1.
6.3
Check the calibration of the HC analyzer by running the 9,000 ppm (0.9% by
volume) calibration check gas following the manufacturer’s procedures. The
reading must be between 8,000 and 10,000 ppm (0.8% and 1.0% by volume).
Record results on Form 1. If the result is outside of the required range then the
analyzer shall be recalibrated per manufacturer’s specifications prior to
conducting this test.
6.4
Assemble the inlet test gas cylinder, regulator, flow meter and flow control valve,
and transfer line as shown in Figure 1. Attach the HC analyzer sampling line to
the outlet test port ¼ inch NPT fitting on the top of the polisher as shown in
Figure 1.
6.5
Visually check to ensure the inlet 3-way valve (see Figure 1) to the Vapor
Polisher is in the closed test position so the flow is coming from the inlet test gas
to the inlet of the Vapor Polisher.

TEST PROCEDURE
7.1
Set the inlet test gas flow rate to 15 scfh. Adjust the flow rate as necessary
during the test to maintain the flow rate of 14 to 16 scfh. Start the stopwatch.
Record the start and end flow rates on Form 1.
7.2
Record the first HC reading three (3) minutes after starting the stopwatch. Take
three (3) more readings one (1) minute apart for a total test time of 6 minutes.
7.3
Record the HC concentration for each minute from minute 3 to 6 on Form 1, with
other required information. All results less than 9,000 ppm shall be recorded as
“< 9000 ppm”. All results greater than or equal to 9,000 ppm shall be recorded
as “> 9000 ppm”.
7.4
Alternative to Form 1: Districts may require the use of an alternate Form,
provided it includes the same minimum parameters identified in Form 1.
7.5
Remove test equipment. Re-install the outlet test port cap by applying Teflon™
tape to the threads and tighten the cap ¼ inch turn past snug. Ensure that the
3-way inlet valve is in the normal operating (“open”) position. At the TLS console
re-set the Vapor Valve to the automatic mode.
8.
RESULTS
If the emission concentration is ≥ 9000 ppm (0.9% by volume during any part of
the test, then the Vapor Polisher is not in compliance with the Exhibit 2 HC
emission requirements.
9.
ALTERNATIVE TEST PROCEDURES
This procedure shall be conducted as specified. Modifications to this test
procedure shall not be used to determine compliance unless prior written

Appendix A: Partial Manual Purge Procedure
The purpose of this procedure is to purge a fully or mostly loaded canister to
ensure that the HC load is less than 80% so that a Hydrocarbon Emissions
Verification Test (Exhibit 12) can be performed.
1. Use the TLS Console PMC Diagnostic menus to manually close the canister
vapor valve to be sure nitrogen supply gas will flow through the carbon and
not out the exhaust vent.
2. Refer to Figure 2. Temporarily move the manual inlet test port three way
valve to the test port position to disconnect the canister from the UST vent
stack.
3. Connect a nitrogen gas supply with regulator and flow meter to the outlet test
port.
4. Return the manual test port three way valve back to the normal operating
position to reconnect the canister to the UST vent stack.
5. Open the nitrogen gas supply valve and set a flow rate of 18 CFH. This
starts the purging process.
6. After 35 minutes of flow, which provides approximately 10 cubic feet of purge
volume, close the nitrogen gas supply valve. The load on the carbon will
now be less than 80% so that a normal Vapor Emission Operability Test can
be performed after finishing this procedure. Note that the PMC Diagnostic
Load % does not change as a result of this procedure because the canister
vapor valve was manually closed in Step1.
7. Temporarily move the manual inlet test port three way valve to the test port
position to disconnect the canister from the UST vent stack.
8. Disconnect the nitrogen gas supply from the canister outlet test port and
replace the test port plug using fuel resistant sealing compound to seal off
the port.
9. Return the manual test port three way valve back to the normal operating
position to reconnect the canister to the UST vent stack.
10. Using the TLS Console PMC Diagnostic menus, return control of the canister
vapor valve to automatic mode.
A Hydrocarbon Emissions Verification Test can now be performed.

PRINCIPLE AND SUMMARY OF TEST PROCEDURE
2.1
The Clean Air Separator, while isolated from the vapor recovery system, is
evaluated for vapor integrity using a vacuum decay procedure. The vacuum
decay after 5 minutes is compared with an allowable value. The allowable
value is based upon the initial vacuum level when conducting the test using the
table provided in this test procedure.
2.2
A positive pressure decay procedure is included that conducts the same
evaluation as the vacuum decay but with positive pressure. This test is
conducted if there is insufficient vacuum (not greater than – 2.00” wc) to
conduct the vacuum decay. Districts have the authority to specify in the permit
conditions that this positive pressure test is to be conducted even if the
vacuum test has been conducted.
RANGE
3.1
4
This test procedure is used to quantify the vapor tightness of the Healy Clean Air
Separator (CAS) pressure management system installed as part of a gasoline
dispensing facility (GDF) under Executive Order VR-203 and VR-204.
The full-scale range of the electronic measuring device shall not exceed 020.00” wc with a minimum accuracy of not less than 0.25 percent of full-scale.
INTERFERENCES
4.1
Leaks in the piping for the Clean Air Separator could bias the test results
toward non-compliance.
4.2
Introduction of gaseous nitrogen into the system at flow rates exceeding 4
CFM (240 CFH) may bias the results of the test toward non-compliance. Only
gaseous nitrogen shall be used to conduct this test.
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 14 – VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-2-
4.3
Pressurizing the Clean Air Separator bladder greater than 14.00” wc could
damage the bladder, biasing the test toward non-compliance.
4.4
Thermal Bias for Electronic Manometers
Electronic manometers shall have a warm-up period of at least 15 minutes followed
by a drift check of 5 minutes. If the drift exceeds 0.01” wc, the instrument should
not be used.
5
APPARATUS
5.1
Nitrogen
Use commercial grade gaseous nitrogen in a high pressure cylinder, equipped
with a two-stage pressure regulator.
5.2

A digital (electronic) manometer with 0.01 inches WC, or better resolution.
The sensor must have a minimum measuring range of +/- 10 inches WC. The
sensor must also be accurate to 0.05 inches WC for any pressure
measurement made during the prescribed tests. For a manometer with a +/- 10
inches WC measurement range, this requires a 0.25% basic accuracy.
5.3
Test Port Assembly
Use a test port assembly constructed similar to the one in Figure A. The
assembly should have an 8 oz. Pressure Relief valve, to ensure that the Clean
Air Separator is not over pressurized. The Model 9968 Clean Air Separator Test
Port Assembly can be purchased from Healy Systems, Inc.

PRE-TEST PROCEDURES
6.1
The following safety precautions shall be followed:
6.1.1
Only gaseous nitrogen shall be used to pressurize the system.
6.1.2
An 8 oz. pressure relieve valve shall be installed on the Test Port
Assembly to prevent the possible over-pressurizing of the Clean Air
Separator.
6.1.3
A ground strap should be employed during the introduction of nitrogen
into the system.
6.2
There shall be no Phase I bulk product deliveries into or out of the gasoline
storage tank(s) within the three (3) hours prior to the test or during the
performance of this test procedure.
6.3
A copy of the most current calibration shall be kept with all equipment. All
electronic pressure measuring devices shall be bench tested for accuracy
using a reference gauge, incline manometer or National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST) traceable standard at least once every 180
consecutive days. Accuracy checks shall be performed at a minimum of three
(3) points (e.g., 20, 50 and 80 percent of full scale) each for both positive and
negative pressure readings. Accuracy shall meet the requirements of Section
4.
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 14 – VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-4-
6.4
Use the flow meter to determine the nitrogen regulator delivery pressures that
correspond to nitrogen flow rates of 2.0 CFM (120 CFH) and 4.0 CFM (240
CFH). These pressures define the allowable range of delivery pressures
acceptable for this test procedure. The flow meter shall be connected in-line
between the nitrogen supply regulator and the Test Port Assembly during
pressurization. The flow meter may be connected in-line between the nitrogen
supply regulator and the Test Port Assembly during the test.
6.5
The electronic pressure measurement device shall be subject to warm-up and
drift check before use; see Section 4.5.
6.6
The four ball valves used in the installation of the Clean Air Separator are
lockable and shall be locked in the position shown in Figure 1 or Figure 1H of
this Exhibit during normal operation. Figure 1 applies to vertical CAS
installations and Figure 1H applies to horizontal CAS installations. The four
padlocks provided by Healy Systems, Inc. in their installation kit are keyed the
same. However, it is possible that one or more of the padlocks on the Clean Air
Separator could have been replaced (seizing, damage, broken key, etc.).
Conducting this test will require a set of keys necessary to unlock all padlocks.
6.7
Verify that the Clean Air Separator is in its normal operating configuration by
confirming that all components are as indicated (See Figure 1 or Figure 1H):

Installing the Test Port Assembly
6.8.1
Open the ball valve marked “B”, shown in Figure 1 or Figure 1H. This
ensures that if there is any condensate in the primary connection line to
the Clean Air Separator it will drop down into the lower section of the
piping configuration, so that it can be measured. Close the valve after
approximately 30 seconds.
6.8.2
Position the condensate collection vessel below plug “E” prior to removing
it. Remove the 1” plugs from locations “E” and “F” from Figure 1 or Figure
1H. Transfer the collected condensate into the graduated cylinder. If there
is more than 16 oz. (473 mL) of liquid condensate, the bladder and vapor
processor vessel must be drained. Conduct the bladder and vessel
draining procedures from the Clean Air Separator section of the ARB
Approved Installation, Operation and Maintenance Manual.
Note: Depending upon the size of the graduated cylinder and the amount
of condensate, it may take multiple transfers from the condensate
collection vessel to get the total condensate measurement.
6.8.3
Install the Test Port Assembly to the Clean Air Separator at location “E”.
See Figure 2 or Figure 2H. Figure 2 applies to vertical CAS installations
and Figure 2H applies to horizontal CAS installations.
6.8.4
Connect the gaseous nitrogen supply to the Test Port Assembly. See
Figure 2 or Figure 2H.
6.8.5
Check the test equipment and piping isolated from normal Clean Air
Separator operation by the ball valves “B, C and D” by pressurizing with
nitrogen to a pressure of 4” wc ± 1” wc and closing the ball valve on the
Test Port Assembly. Use leak detection solution. Tighten as necessary.
The test equipment shall have no leaks.
6.8.6
Open the needle valve on the Test Port Assembly to bleed the pressure
off the equipment. Keep ball valve on Test Port Assembly closed.

TESTING
7.1
Open the ball valve marked “B” from Figure 2 or Figure 2H. The pressure
measurement device installed on the Test Port Assembly should now be
reading UST and Clean Air Separator ullage pressure (or vacuum).
7.2
If the station vacuum is greater than (more negative) than -2.00” wc, then
proceed to Section 7.2.1. If less than –2.00” wc, then proceed to Section 7.3:
7.2.1
Close the ball valves marked “A” and “B” from Figure 2.
7.2.2
Open the ball valve marked “C” from Figure 2 and wait one minute.
7.2.3
If necessary, use the needle valve on the Test Port Assembly to bleed air
into the bladder until the vacuum level reaches as close to a whole
number on the pressure measurement device as the accuracy of the
device will provide (ie. -2.00, -3.00, -4.00, -5.00, -6.00, -7.00, -8.00). Make
sure the needle valve is closed. Record this vacuum and start the stop
watch to begin a 5 minute decay.
7.2.4
Record the vacuum at one-minute increments up to 5 minutes.
7.2.5
Using the information from Table 1, verify that the vacuum after 5 minutes
is equal to or greater than the allowable minimum for the initial vacuum
recorded from Section 7.2.3.
7.2.6
If the vacuum is greater than the allowable minimum, the Clean Air
Separator passed the test.
7.2.7
If the vacuum is less than the allowable minimum, the Clean Air
Separator failed the test.

If the station vacuum is less than –2.00” wc (from Section 7.2), or at the
direction of district (refer to Section 2.2), conduct the following:
7.3.1
Close the ball valves marked “A” and “B” from Figure 2.
7.3.2
Open the ball valve marked “C” from Figure 2.
7.3.3
Open the ball valve of the Test Port Assembly and flow nitrogen into the
Clean Air Separator bladder at a flow rate between 2 and 4 CFM until the
pressure in the bladder reaches 2.20” wc.
7.3.3.1
Depending upon the nitrogen flow rate used, the bladder could take
up to 30 minutes to fill completely.
7.3.3.2
Because of the close proximity of the pressure measurement device
to the nitrogen inlet of the Test Port Assembly, the pressure
measurement device may read a higher pressure when nitrogen is
flowing. The pressure measurement device is usually steady, but will
start to increase rapidly when the bladder is getting full. Periodically
stopping nitrogen flow will provide an accurate reading of the pressure
in the bladder.
7.3.4
Once the pressure reaches 2.20” wc, shut off the flow of nitrogen to the
Clean Air Separator bladder and close the ball valve of the Test Port
Assembly.
7.3.5
Wait 5 minutes or until pressure stabilizes above 2.00” wc. If the pressure
does not stabilize, repeat steps 7.3.3 and 7.3.4.
7.3.6
Use the needle valve on the Test Port Assembly to bleed off the nitrogen
until the pressure reaches 2.00” wc. Make sure the needle valve is
closed. Record the pressure.
7.3.7
Start the stop watch to begin a 5 minute decay.
7.3.8
Record the pressure in one-minute increments up to 5 minutes.
7.3.9
If the pressure in the bladder is greater than 1.77” wc at the end of 5
minutes, then the Clean Air Separator passed the test.
7.3.10
If the pressure in the bladder is less than 1.77” wc at the end of 5
minutes, then the Clean Air Separator failed the test.
7.4
If the bladder was evaluated using the vacuum procedure (Section 7.2), close
the ball valve “C” to keep it in a vacuum condition. If the bladder was evaluated
using the pressure procedure (Section 7.3), open the needle valve on the Test
Port Assembly to bleed off all pressure from the bladder.
7.5
Close the ball valve marked “C”, if not already done.

1)
2)
PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
1.1
This procedure will assess the performance of the VST Green Machine by
determining the concentration of hydrocarbons (HCs) being emitted from the
processor and the Green Machine’s capability to control Underground Storage
Tank (UST) pressure. This test will be referred to as the “GM Bag Test”.
1.2
This test will also assure that the Green Machine’s continuous monitoring function
is working properly. This test is known as the “Continuous Monitoring Test”.
1.3
This procedure is applicable for compliance testing but should not commence
within 3 hours after a fuel delivery or within an hour after the Green Machine has
been operating.
1.4
This procedure may be conducted while the station is operating.
PRINCIPLE AND SUMMARY OF TEST PROCEDURE
For the “GM Bag Test”, the NOVA portable HC Analyzer “zero” and “span” will need to
be set. Once the analyzer is set, the Tedlar bags will be purged with Nitrogen prior to
use in the compliance test. Finally, the GM Bag Test will be run and the results
compared to the required maximum level of HCs as measured by the NOVA.
The Continuous Monitoring Test uses the VST Green Machine Controller to test the
amperage for the Vacuum/Motor Pump. This test will simulate a motor fault. If there is
no current sensed, a “Fuel Alarm LX” will show on the Veeder Root TLS-350 display.

Liquid Condensate Trap Compliance Test Procedure
Definitions common to all certification and test procedures are in:
D-200
Definitions for Vapor Recovery Procedures
For the purpose of this procedure the term “ARB” refers to the California Air Resources Board,
and the term “Executive Officer” refers to the ARB Executive Officer or his or her authorized
representative or designate.
1. PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
This procedure is used to verify the automatic evacuation of the Liquid Condensate Trap
(LCT), the Liquid Sensor Alarm, as well as Visual and Audible Alarm. This procedure
provides a method to determine compliance with the LCT requirements specified in ARB
Executive Orders VR-203 and VR-204 and any subsequent amendments or revisions.
2. PRINCIPLE AND SUMMARY OF TEST PROCEDURE
This test procedure provides a method to determine the compliance of LCTs. Gasoline is
added to the LCT until the Liquid Sensor activates an alarm. The gasoline in the LCT is
then allowed to be evacuated until the Liquid Sensor Alarm has cleared.
3. BIASES AND INTERFERENCES
3.1. There can be no Phase I deliveries to the gasoline underground storage tank (UST)
while performing this test.
3.2. To ensure that the gasoline level is below the vapor tube on the side of the Turbine
Pump the gasoline level in the UST (connected to the LCT) must be below its
90 percent capacity level.
4. EQUIPMENT
4.1. Five (5) gallon gasoline container and funnel or other method of pouring gasoline into
the LCT.
5. PRETEST PROCEDURE
5.1. Notify the Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) prior to conducting this test
procedure. A list of CUPAs can be found at
www.calepa.ca.gov/CUPA/Directory/default.aspx.
5.2. No dispensing is allowed to any vehicle for the duration of the test.
5.3. Prior to testing, turn off the 87 grade turbine pump that is connected to the LCT suction
line. (This is to keep from evacuating the LCT when adding gasoline for testing.)
Balance Phase II EVR Systems, Exhibit 16 – VR-203-N and VR-204-N
-- 2 --
5.4. Record LCT capacity in Form 1. A metal tag specifying LCT capacity is installed above
the Fuel Entry Point (See Figures 1 and 2). If LCT capacity tag is not installed, the LCT
is not in compliance with Exhibit 2 specifications.
6. TEST PROCEDURE:
6.1. Remove plug or cap on Fuel Entry Point installed at the suction riser of the LCT. Add
gasoline through the open Fuel Entry Point (see Figures 1, 2 and 3). Note: Gasoline
may be added at one of the dispenser risers in lieu of the LCT Fuel Entry Port.
For a typically sized LCT (9.9 gallons) this will be approximately 2 to 3 gallons of
gasoline because the Liquid Sensor is installed at 2 inches from the bottom of the LCT
(See Figure 4). For larger LCTs do not introduce more gasoline than 10 percent
capacity of the LCT.
6.2. Verify the Liquid Sensor activates an Audible and Visual Alarm at the tank monitoring
system control panel (control panel) and obtain a printout of the alarm/sensor status
(see attached Appendix A for instructions on printing out the sensor alarm report for the
Veeder-Root and INCON tank monitoring systems). Record results on Form 1 and
attach printout of sensor status. After verification you may silence the Alarm.
If there is No Audible and Visual Alarm at the control panel within five (5) minutes, the
LCT is not in compliance with Exhibit 2 specifications.
6.3. Verify Liquid Evacuation: Turn on the turbine pump that is connected to the LCT.
Maintain this turbine pump operation (running) until the Liquid Sensor Alarm has
cleared (i.e. turned off). Record results on Form 1 and attach printout of sensor status
(see attached Appendix A for instructions on printing out the sensor alarm report for the
Veeder-Root and INCON tank monitoring systems).
Note: To keep this turbine pump running you may need to authorize more than one
fueling point during the testing period. For a typical LCT capacity of 10 gallons, it will
take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to evacuate 3 gallons of gasoline.
If the Liquid Sensor Alarm does not clear, (gasoline is not being evacuated), the LCT is
not in compliance with Exhibit 2 specifications.
7. POST TEST PROCEDURE:
If plug or cap on the LCT Fuel Entry Point was removed, reinstall using pipe thread
sealant (e.g. pipe dope) and gasoline compatible PTFE tape (e.g. Teflon® tape,
plumber’s tape, or tape dope). If gasoline was introduced at one of the dispenser risers,
reconnect the dispenser vapor piping to the riser.
8. REPORTING RESULTS
Record all alarms and evacuation test results, as well as any failures on Form 1. Ensure
all printouts from control panel are attached to Form 1. Districts may require the use of
alternate forms provided that the alternate forms include the same parameters as
identified in Form 1.

Veeder Root LCT Liquid Sensor Alarm Report
There are many manufacturers of UST tank monitoring systems. The following are steps to
print the Liquid Sensor Alarm History Report from the UST tank monitoring console for the
Veeder-Root TLS-350 Tank Monitoring System.
Note: When the LCT liquid sensors were originally programmed into the Tank Monitoring
System the title given to those sensors included “LCT” in the name (for example if Liquid
Sensor 10 is the High Level Liquid Sensor for the LCT it could have been named “L10
LCT High Liquid”.)

Accessing PMC and ISD Parameters at Gasoline Dispensing Facilities (GDFs) with
Veeder-Root “Maintenance Tracker” Security Feature Installed & Enabled
Definitions common to all certification and test procedures are in:
D-200
Definitions for Vapor Recovery Procedures
For the purpose of this procedure the term “ARB” refers to the California Air Resources Board,
and the term “Executive Officer” refers to the ARB Executive Officer or his or her authorized
representative or designate.
1. PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY
The Maintenance Tracker is an optional security device produced and marketed by Veeder
Root (VR) as a means to control and record access to their tank monitoring and ISD
systems. Unless a specialized “technician key” is made available, the Maintenance Tracker
prevents unauthorized personnel from gaining access to tank monitoring system diagnostic
and setup modes which are necessary to clear system alarms. The technician key is a
physical chip device, similar to a flash memory stick, which plugs into a companion RS232
card installed on the TLS Console.
Because the Veeder-Root In-Station Diagnostics (ISD) system resides within the TLS
Console, the Maintenance Tracker also restricts access to PMC and ISD related parameters
such as vapor pressure sensor values and the ability to turn on or turn off the vapor
processor. When Maintenance Tracker is installed and enabled, the parameters listed in
Table 1 (see below) are not accessible through the TLS Console unless a technician key is
made available. An alternative way to access these parameters without a technician key is
available through the RS232 interface by using a software program developed by VeederRoot called “ISD Setup Tool” Version 1.09 or higher.
The purpose of this procedure is to provide instructions on how to access PMC and ISD
parameters specified in Table 1 when Maintenance Tracker is installed and enabled. This
procedure only applies to GDFs equipped with Veeder-Root PMC and ISD systems. This
procedure shall be used in conjunction with the appropriate or applicable procedure listed in
Table 1.
The term “TLS Console” used throughout this Exhibit includes but is not limited to TLS-350,
TLS-350 Plus, TLS-350-R, Red Jacket ProMax, and Gilbarco EMC consoles, which are also
referenced in Exhibit 1.

2. PRINCIPLE AND SUMMARY OF PROCEDURE
As indicated in section one, there are two ways to access PMC and ISD parameters when
Maintenance Tracker is installed and enabled; directly from the TLS Console using a key or
indirectly through the RS232 interface using a specialized software program developed by
Veeder-Root. This procedure provides access instructions for both methods. Option 1
provides instructions on how access the ISD and PMC parameters directly from the TLS
Console when a Maintenance Tracker key is available. Option 2 provides instructions on
how to access the ISD and PMC parameters through the RS232 interface by using the
software program called “ISD Setup Tool Version 1.09” (or higher).
