PEI/RP900

Primary tabs

This 52-page document published by the Petroleum Equipment Institute provides a basic reference that consolidates published and unpublished information from equipment manufacturers, service and installation contractors, petroleum marketers as well as regulatory agencies concerning the proper inspection and maintenance of underground storage tank systems. The recommended practice applies to underground storage tanks and associated equipment intended to store and dispense gasolinediesel, and related petroleum products at vehicle-fueling facilities. The equipment covered includes all below-grade, liquid- and vapor-handling components accessible from grade over or near the top of the storage tank and below the emergency shutoff valve at the fuel dispensers.

PEI has written this recommended practice to promote proper inspection, operation, and maintenance of underground storage systems, enhance the longevity and trouble-free performance of underground storage tank equipment, promote fire prevention and storage system safety, promote protection of human health and the environment, promote regulatory compliance and reduce liability associated with the operation of underground storage systems and promote early identification of potential problems with equipment.
