1) EQUIPMENTS AIM :
To detect the presence of combustible gas in the air or the presence of layers of liquid hydrocarbons.

2) STANDARDS OF INSTALLATION :
GS-AMO-SL-029 and STD-AMO-SL-354.

3) CONCERNED INSTALLATIONS :
All liquid hydrocarbon tanks with a storage temperature higher than the flash-point and with
3
operational capacity up to 100 m .
All liquid hydrocarbon tanks with a storage temperature lower than the flash-point and with operational
3
capacity up to than 5.000 m .
All separators of liquid hydrocarbon depots whatever are their capacities.

4) TIMELINE OF EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION:


Mandatory for new depots.
All existing depots must be equipped before the end of 2017.

5) DESCRIPTION OF THE EQUIPMENT:

Vapour HC optic detector « HCV » with


infrared absorption (type OLDHAM OLCT IR
Version E)

Liquid HC detector « HCL » consists of 1


sensor connected to a float. It uses the
density difference between water and
hydrocarbons for detection (LARCO HK1H
type) – 2 sensors for separator (LARCO
HK2H type)

Sensors are failsafe connected: in case of failure they have to indicate the defect (loss of current,
break in the cable…). Information acquisition could be managed by automate or by a dedicated
station. The minimal action will be audible and visual alarm activation. This equipment will be protected
with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

7) MAINTENANCE OF THE EQUIPMENT :


HCL DETECTOR – LARCO type
Frequency Control Actor
Check the cleanness of the pit where the detector is installed –
Daily Depot collaborator
clean it if needed.
Check if the float slides without constraints on its rail.
Test the operation of the detector by immersing it in water to
Quarterly check the transmission of the visual and sound alarm to the Depot collaborator
control panel and the linked actions.
Clean the detector.
HCV DETECTOR – OLDHAM type
Monthly Check if the detector is in good condition. Depot collaborator
Calibrate the detector with a standard gas (be careful: the
standard gas cylinders have a best before date) and realize a
Quarterly functional test. Depot collaborator
Check the transmission of the alarm to the detection system
(visual and sound).
After each vapour Check the good functioning of the detector and the absence of
Depot collaborator
detection drift.
HC DETECTION SYSTEM – CONTROL PANEL
Check the absence of detection and alarm and that all LED of
Daily Depot collaborator
detectors are green.
Use the TEST button to check the good functioning of the LED
Weekly Depot collaborator
and buzzer (sound alarm).

Every intervention has to be recorded on the life-sheet of the equipment.
