5 Measurement and test methods for the assessment of petrol vapour
recovery systems at service stations
5.1 General test conditions

It shall be verified that the test equipment and the vapour recovery system under test are free from leaks.

During the measurements, the following parameters and boundary conditions shall be maintained:

a) petrol according to Table 1 of EN 228:2012;
b) petrol temperature (15 ± 5) °C measured at the nozzle outlet;

c) petrol vapour pressure shall be measured before the first test and after the last test. The vapour pressure

shall not change by more than ± 10 % from the first measurement;
d) maximum back pressure ± 10 %;
e) ambient air temperature (20 ± 5) °C;
f) test tanks according to Annex A;
-1 -1

g) gas volume meter capable of operating at flow rates of between 10 l min and 50 l min , having an

accuracy of ± 2 %.
5.2 Efficiency test
5.2.1 General

The basis for the calculation of the efficiency shall be the determination of the basic emission and the residual

emission. The basic emission shall be measured with the petrol vapour recovery system switched off and the

residual emission with the petrol vapour recovery system switched on. The residual emission shall be

determined for each test tank in two orientations of the nozzle on the filler neck.

a) Normal position (nozzle trigger guard in the vertical position); and

b) position of the nozzle rotated 45° with respect to the normal position with bottom of the handle pointing to

the rear of the car.

The test shall be performed with the maximum back pressure of the vapour recovery system stated by the

applicant.

The measurement shall be carried out with a petrol volume flow rate of (38,0 ± 1,0) l·min . It shall be carried

out twice on each test tank.

If, on an individual test tank, the two test results for the efficiency in % differ by no more than 1,5 %, the

average of these results shall be recorded.

If, on an individual test tank, the two test results for the efficiency in % differ by more than 1,5 % a third

measurement shall be carried out. If the third result differs by no more than 1,5 % from the second

measurement, then the average of the second and third measurement shall be recorded.

If, on an individual test tank, the third result differs by more than 1,5 % from the second measurement, but

differs by less than 1,5 % from the first measurement, then the average of the first and third measurement

shall be recorded.
---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------
SIST EN 16321-1:2013
EN 16321-1:2013 (E)

If the third result differs by more than 1,5 % from both the second measurement and the first measurement,

then the test has failed.

The efficiency of the vapour recovery system shall be calculated using the average result for each test tank

according to 5.2.6.

The basic emission and the residual emission shall be determined by absorption of the emitted hydrocarbons

on activated carbon and gravimetric analysis. The hydrocarbons shall be captured at the filler neck, where the

emissions occur, using a collecting device (boot), see Figure 1. Before new test equipment is used for testing

petrol vapour recovery systems, the performance of the test equipment including a test tank shall be verified

by comparative measurements in a SHED chamber.
