The state-of-the-art analog equipment used by All Boro Tank Testing is regularly evaluated by the National Work Group on Leak Detection Evaluations (NWGLDE) as well as by a third party evaluator. All Boro Tank Testings equipment is certified to test tanks up to 30,000 gallons (digital testing equipment is not).
Furthermore, many states have not yet certified the digital testing methods. In fact, the majority of testing companies prefer to use the analog method because of the accuracy and dependability of the results. All Boro's tank test can detect and locate air leaks within 3 minutes. Unlike our competitor's equipment, exterior temperature and interior tank vapor pockets do not affect our tests. All Boro can test your underground tank in various weather conditions, whether your tank is completely empty or up to 99% full. The equipment used by All Boro Tank Testing is the Estabrook EZY 3 Locator Plus tank testing system. Due to the large demand in today's market, tank testing is becoming a necessity.
The EZY 3 Locator Plus consists of a microphone placed in the ullage portion of the underground tank. The microphone is connected to an acoustic signal processor and to a headset enabling the technician to listen to the acoustic sounds in the tank. Using the motor/blower assembly a slight vacuum is applied to the tank system, air will be drawn into the tank if a leak exists.
Acoustic Signal Processor, Microphone, & Headset:
The frequency response curve of this instrumentation allows it to discriminate easily between bubbles, leaks, leak types, and mechanical vibration. This equipment gives true "live" sound, which is easily recognizable for the technician.
The EZY 3 Locator Plus tests the entire tank system, including the product lines. When testing, the tank can be empty to 99% full. A blower is used to reduce the positive pressure inside the tank and bring it below atmospheric pressure. This is usually referred to as a vacuum test, not a pressure test.
If a tank system leaks and the leaks are above the liquid level, air will intrude into the tank, which causes a hissing sound; this will fail the tank system test. If a tank system leaks and the leaks are below the liquid level this will cause a bubbling or gurgling sound, which will also result in a tank system failure. The technician can distinguish between the different sounds and can determine immediately whether the leak is in the ullage (dry) or the wetted portion of the tank, if a leak exists
