40 CFR Appendix Table 1 to Subpart CCCCCC of Part 63, Applicability Criteria and Management Practices for Gasoline Dispensing Facilities With Monthly Throughput of 100,000 Gallons of Gasoline or More 1

Table 1 to Subpart CCCCCC of Part 63 - Applicability Criteria and Management Practices for Gasoline Dispensing Facilities With Monthly Throughput of 100,000 Gallons of Gasoline or More 1
If you own or operate Then you must
1. A new, reconstructed, or existing GDF subject to § 63.11118 Install and operate a vapor balance system on your gasoline storage tanks that meets the design criteria in paragraphs (a) through (h).
(a) All vapor connections and lines on the storage tank shall be equipped with closures that seal upon disconnect.
(b) The vapor line from the gasoline storage tank to the gasoline cargo tank shall be vapor-tight, as defined in § 63.11132 .
(c) The vapor balance system shall be designed such that the pressure in the tank truck does not exceed 18 inches water pressure or 5.9 inches water vacuum during product transfer.
(d) The vapor recovery and product adaptors, and the method of connection with the delivery elbow, shall be designed so as to prevent the over-tightening or loosening of fittings during normal delivery operations.
(e) If a gauge well separate from the fill tube is used, it shall be provided with a submerged drop tube that extends the same distance from the bottom of the storage tank as specified in § 63.11117(b) .
(f) Liquid fill connections for all systems shall be equipped with vapor-tight caps.
(g) Pressure/vacuum (PV) vent valves shall be installed on the storage tank vent pipes. The pressure specifications for PV vent valves shall be: a positive pressure setting of 2.5 to 6.0 inches of water and a negative pressure setting of 6.0 to 10.0 inches of water. The total leak rate of all PV vent valves at an affected facility, including connections, shall not exceed 0.17 cubic foot per hour at a pressure of 2.0 inches of water and 0.63 cubic foot per hour at a vacuum of 4 inches of water.
(h) The vapor balance system shall be capable of meeting the static pressure performance requirement of the following equation:
Pf = 2e−500.887/v
Where:
Pf = Minimum allowable final pressure, inches of water.
v = Total ullage affected by the test, gallons.
e = Dimensionless constant equal to approximately 2.718.
2 = The initial pressure, inches water.
2. A new or reconstructed GDF, or any storage tank(s) constructed after November 9, 2006, at an existing affected facility subject to § 63.11118 Equip your gasoline storage tanks with a dual-point vapor balance system, as defined in § 63.11132 , and comply with the requirements of item 1 in this Table.

1 The management practices specified in this Table are not applicable if you are complying with the requirements in § 63.11118(b)(2), except that if you are complying with the requirements in § 63.11118(b)(2)(i)(B), you must operate using management practices at least as stringent as those listed in this Table.
