  • PVR Stage I System Design Requirements

    The system must minimise petrol vapour emissions when the specified number of delivery tanker compartments are discharged at the same time.

    Petrol storage tank vent pipes must be fitted with a pressure vacuum relief valve

    The pressure vacuum relief valve must only open outwards in the vent of a potentially hazardous pressurisation and open inwards to allow air to enter when fuel is being dispensed.

    As an alternative to the pressure relief valve an orifice vent device may be fitted to balance storage tank vapour pressure to atmospheric pressure

1. Operator details

  • Installation name

  • Address

  • Telephone number

  • Permit number

2. General

  • Ensure effective preventative maintenance by following a schedule of maintenance and having spares and consumables available without delay

    Test vent and vapour return lines in accordance with the maintenance schedule

    Pressure vacuum relief valves or other similar devices on the petrol storage tank vents are checked for correct functioning, seating and corrosion AT LEAST once every 3 years

  • Olfactory assessment on site and beyond the boundary

  • Manual ullage check satisfactory

  • Manual ullage check system in use e.g. Veeder Root

  • Tank integrity satisfactory

  • Integrity check details e.g. Who? Frequency?

  • EMIGMA data satisfactory

  • Annual throughput

  • Photographs (if applicable)

3. Training documentation

  • Provide sufficient training and practical instruction for service station staff to enable them to use (or supervise the use of) and maintain the petrol vapour protection controls where required; and also in the actions to take in the event of a petrol vapour leak e.g. Undue petrol odour; chattering pressure vacuum relief valve.
