EN 13160-1:2016 (E) 3 European foreword This document (EN 13160-1:2016) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 393 “Equipment for storage tanks and for service stations”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by January 2017, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by January 2017. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document supersedes EN 13160-1:2003. According to edition 2003 the following fundamental changes are given: — new definitions for the Class IV C added; — requirements concerning electromagnetic compatibility added; — requirements for the different classes shifted to the part of the appropriate class. This European Standard Leak detection systems consists of 7 parts: — Part 1: General principles — Part 2: Requirements and test/assessment methods for pressure and vacuum kits — Part 3: Requirements and test/assessment methods for liquid systems for tanks — Part 4: Requirements and test/assessment methods for sensor based leak detection systems — Part 5: Requirements and test/assessment methods for in-tank gauge systems and pressurized pipework systems — Part 6: Sensors in monitoring wells — Part 7: Requirements and test/assessment methods for interstitial spaces, leak detection linings and leak detection jackets According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

EN 13160-1:2016 (E) 5 3.3 operating pressure fluid pressure occurring during specified operating conditions 3.4 leak detection system includes all equipment required to indicate a leak Note 1 to entry: Main components could include the interstitial space, leak protecting linings, leak protecting jacket, leak indicating device, leak detector, system pipework, leak detecting media, monitoring wells or sensors. 3.5 interstitial space space between the walls of double-skin systems. It provides the passage for fluids which may enter the interstitial space 3.6 double-skin tank tank constructed with an inner and outer wall with an interstitial space where the maximum filling level of the tank does not exceed the height of the interstitial space 3.7 single-skin tank tank constructed with a single wall 3.8 leak detection lining internal layer which solely or in conjunction with the tank wall produces a suitable interstitial space 3.9 leak detection jacket external layer which solely or in conjunction with an intermediate material and the tank wall produces a suitable interstitial space 3.10 intermediate layer material used to separate the inner and outer surfaces, it ensures the creation of an interstitial space 3.11 double-skin pipework pipework constructed with an inner and outer wall with an interstitial space 3.12 single-skin pipework pipework constructed with a single wall 3.13 vacuum leak detector detects a leak using air as the leak detection medium, an alarm is triggered by a rise in pressure in the interstitial space in the event of a leak 3.14 pressure leak detector detects a leak using air or inert gas as the leak detection medium; an alarm is triggered by a drop in pressure within the interstitial space in the event of a leak SIST EN 13160-1:2016
