Title
(EN) ENHANCED VAPOR CONTAINMENT AND MONITORING
(FR) CONFINEMENT ET MONITORAGE AMELIORES DES VAPEURS
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus and method for ensuring effective vehicle vapor recovery performance, storage tank system (1) integrity relative to both vapor and liquid containment and for reducing the probability that inaccurate information causes companies to undertake unnecessary, expensive and wasteful loss investigations at gasoline dispensing facilities. A fuel storage (5) and delivery system is transformed from an 'open system' communicating directly with the environment to a 'closed system' which ensures capture, containment and accurate accounting of both hydrocarbon vapors and liquid phase product.
(FR)
Appareil et procédé destinés à assurer l'efficacité des performances en matière de récupération des vapeurs de véhicules et l'intégrité du système de réservoirs de stockage (1) destinés au confinement des liquides et des vapeurs et à réduire la probabilité d'investigations inutiles, coûteuses et source de gaspillage dans des installations de distribution d'essence. Un système de stockage (5) et de distribution de carburant est transformé d'un 'système ouvert' communiquant directement avec l'environnement en un 'système fermé' qui assure le captage, le confinement et la comptabilisation précise des vapeurs d'hydrocarbures tout comme des produits en phase liquide.
