  • Arid Technologies - Membranes, Molecules and the Science of Permeation
    follows No ORVR and no Stage II uncontrolled stations In this scenario refueling will contribute to significant liquid evaporation as atmospheric air is ingested into the storage tank via the vapor vent or breaches in the vapor piping The air will enter at a volume equivalent to the volume of liquid dispensed and upon re equilibration this air will generate significant emissions Stage II only no ORVR In this scenario atmospheric air and hydrocarbon vapors enter the storage tank when gasoline is pumped to the automobile Some typical vacuum assisted systems obtain high collection efficiencies at the expense of introducing excess air into storage tanks For example if 10 gallons of liquid gasoline are pumped to an automobile the vapor volume returned to the storage tanks may range from 11 to 25 gallons This excess air vapor volume will quickly increase storage tank pressure ORVR only No Stage II While the ORVR system may capture the refueling vapors as designed atmospheric air will enter the storage tank as described in the first scenario above uncontrolled stations ORVR and Stage II As the ORVR system captures vapors displaced from the automobile fuel tank the storage tanks will be back filled with atmospheric air Where vacuum assisted Stage II systems are employed the storage tanks will be backfilled with atmospheric air at a volume greater than the volume of liquid dispensed In these cases the combination of excess gaseous volume and extremely low hydrocarbon concentration will result in rapid storage tank pressurization and subsequent emissions These emissions come through either the vent pipes vent emissions or leaks in the vapor piping fugitive emissions If the vacuum assisted systems are disabled during refueling of ORVR equipped vehicles the resulting storage tank evaporative losses will be equivalent to those generated at uncontrolled dispensing facilities

  • ARID Technologies - Frequently Asked Questions
    tanks In most cases the vapor return stream is directed to the lowest grade fuel storage tank A standard PERMEATOR system has processed vapors from stations pumping over 1 million gallons 4 million litres of gasoline per month 12 What are the typical maintenance items Maintaining oil level in the vacuum pump checked continuously via our oil level sensor and remote data acquisition gear An oil change is recommended annually or after 5 000 hours of operation 13 What is the warranty on the equipment Thirty six months parts and labor 14 Would ARID put on a class for our technical personnel to learn the operation installation and maintenance of the PERMEATOR unit Yes 15 Where does the unit get mounted The PERMEATOR can be placed on the canopy roof at grade or below ground Connections to vent pipes are made for the Feed and rich vapor return lines Ninety perccent of our installations are made at grade with the balance done on canopy roof 16 How much does a standard unit weigh and what are the dimensions A standard unit for a station pumping 150 000 gallons per month V L 1 3 weighs about 750 pounds 340 kg and has dimensions of about 3 ft wide x 3 ft deep x 5 5 ft high 91 cm wide x 91 cm deep x 1 7 m high 17 What are the dimensions of the Control Panel The NEMA 12 Control Panel dimensions are about 20 wide x 9 deep x 16 high 51 cm wide x 23 cm deep x 41 cm high 18 Will the increased proportion of ORVR equipped vehicles take away the need for your system No it will amplify the need As more ORVR vehicles enter the fleet the air ingestion into storage tanks will increase with an associated increase in evaporation 19 Does your system impact the efficiency of Stage I vapor recovery Yes since the storage tank vapors will be at a high equilibrium concentration evaporation losses from the tanker truck during product deliveries will be reduced Also pressure spikes and fugitive losses during deliveries will be reduced In addition the recovery efficiency at the bulk terminal will be increased since the concentration of returned vapors in the bulk tanker will be increased to saturation levels 40 60 by volume 20 Is the system approved for recovery efficiency fire safety by any organization Yes in Europe the German TUV Rheinland has approved the system for recovery efficiency and the German PTB has approved the safety of the unit For North America the vacuum pump uses a UL listed electric motor rated for Class I Div I Group C D environments and the control panel and associated sensors carry a UL 698A approval ARID s proprietary Evaporative Loss Model ELM has been verified time and time again on PERMEATOR installations around the world The magnitude of the savings yield after tax internal rate of return is between 15 and 95 depending on site
