Tired of giving away your revenue?
PS&C offers you a program of high flow meter calibration that will:
– Save you money by not allowing overages/shortages during dispensing of fuel
– PS&C utilizes 100 gallon, 60 gallon and 50gallon provers
– Check for leaks, weeps and seeps under dispensers
– Replace bad parts that keep your pump operational and customers returning; increasing your bottom line.
Our certified technicians calibrate each meter and repeat the process until meeting the standard of quality and regulation.
PS&C specializes in testing of either:
– Impressed Current Systems
– Galvanic (Sacrificial Anode) Systems
State & Federal regulations require both types of systems to be tested on a triennial basis. With our UST-Comp system; you will never have to worry about tracking that triennial date again. We will do this for you!!

“I have had the pleasure of working with PS&C for several years and in my experience they are the best in the business. They have never missed a testing deadline and always notify us prior to being on site. If they find mechanical issues, they do everything they can to resolve the issue and conduct the test during that site visit. When we have a problem with one of our UST systems they are always quick to respond, keep us updated with the progress, and stay on-site until they have identified the problem. I whole heartily recommend them to be your next compliance tester.”
– Southeast Environmental Manager, GPM Southeast

Containment sumps are one of your first protective defenses for pumps, piping and tank tops. These containments consist for UDC(s) & STP(s).
Containment sumps should be water tight, free of breaches and holes, making them durable against allowing product to enter the ground and environment should a leak occur.
Containment sumps serve a variety of functions:
– Containing leaks from submersible turbine pumps and piping components within the sump.
– Collecting and containing leakage from double-walled piping that enters the sumps.
– Containing spills that may occur during maintenance activities associated with components within the sumps.
– Keeping groundwater away from the components with the sumps in areas of high water tables.
– Isolating components from corrosive effects of subsurface moisture and soil.
According to the PEI/RP 900-08 manual there is a checklist that should be performed for containment sumps.
1. Any water or product removed properly
2. Sump is free of cracks, holes, bulges & other defects
3. Penetration fittings are intact and secured
PS&C can perform this check list for you. Our UST-Comp standard operating procedures performs both the visual inspection, as well as, the hydrostatic test for your sumps.
With the new Federal rules containment sump must be tested every three years if you are doing interstitial monitoring on the site.
PS&C has a fleet of small pump trucks to aid in this testing and giving you a cost savings.
This switch is an important inspection area for your station(s). This switch has the ability to disconnect all power to the submersible pumps, dispensers and all electrical components.
PS&C technicians can test the emergency shut off switches at your site for you. We will make sure they are working properly and also provide a description of the location and number of E-stop buttons on site.
Don’t wait until the crisis occurs to realize the switch does not work!
PS&C technicians can “pin-point” the problem saving you thousands of $$$ in excavation cost. This helps you in securing fast repairs and saves you down time and expense.
Our helium testers can speed up the process of your repairs by pinpointing the location of the leak.
We utilize the Mark Model Helium tester allowing us to trace and find leaks in underground storage tanks and fuel lines.
A method of leak detection where the area between the inner and outer walls of a double wall tank or piping is checked for the presence of liquid or a vacuum to determine if there is a leak.
PS&C technicians test interstitial space of your tanks or lines in accordance with the manufacturer’s regulations/recommendations and in accordance with the PEI/RP100.

Whether you have MLLD(s) or PLLD(s), PS&C technicians are certified to complete your annual testing requirement.
PS&C utilizes the Estabrooks EZY CHEK LEAK DETECTOR TESTER.
The leak detector tester is connected into the emergency valve under the dispenser. Pressure and leak rate adjustments are made to determine if the in-line leak detector and functional element are operating to the manufacturer’s specifications.
MLLD(s) and/or PLLD(s) are tested to ensure that the LD passes a 3.0 gallon per hour (GPH) test.
Leak Detector testing can be conducted in conjunction with a tank or line test eliminating additional cost for a returned trip charge!!
PS&C technicians specialize in testing your pressure or suction lines, utilizing the Estabrooks EZY CHEK PRODUCT LINE TESTER.
In addition to these generalized requirements, testing must be conducted in accordance with the manufacturer’s requirements.
EZY-Chek Manual Line Leak Detector (for Rigid Pipelines) — Certification: Leak rate of 0.1 gph with PD = 98.0% and PFA = 1%.
Leak Threshold: 0.05 pgh. A pipeline system should not be declared tight if the test result indicates a loss that equals or exceeds this threshold.

The problem of water in tanks is a constant issue. Where did it come from? How did it get into my tank?
Leaving the water can contribute to the harmful growth of bacteria and corrosion that can damage the tanks; but the fuel itself is “DIRTY” can selling to your customers can cause issues.
If your tanks have sediment, ATG probes are “gunked” up and customers complaining of DIRTY fuel; allow our certified and experienced technicians to come out, pull a tank sample and show you what our fuel treatment service can do.
The proof is in the pictures!
With this service, we remove the water from the tank and treat the diesel/gas with cleaning additives. These additives bring all of the sludge/debris to the bottom and our technician will then pump from the bottom of the tank. While on site we also inspect all tank top openings for potential points of water intrusions and make repairs if they are equipped to do so. Below is an example of what a dirty tank looks like before and after our fuel treatment.
For 25+ years, TotalSIR has been helping tank owners comply with monthly leak detection regulations. TotalSIR consistently ranks #1 in customer service and believes monthly UST compliance should be simple and affordable.

From 1988 through 1998 hundreds of thousands of steel tanks were upgraded with corrosion protection. Many millions were invested by tank owners to extend the useful life of these tanks. The question is; “How well are you protecting your investment?”
Maintaining regulatory compliance is expensive. However, the failure to do so can be financially devastating. Ongoing compliance requires vigilance, detailed record-keeping, and occasional maintenance.
The staff at Protective Technologies has provided corrosion protection services and consulting for nearly 30 years and has a thorough understanding of the rules to help you to avoid regulatory and financial difficulty.
