SAN ANTONIO Leighton O’Brien has launched Compliance Plus, a single-source digital testing platform for line, containment and leak detector testing.

Compliance Plus brings together three technologies, including Sant Antonio-based Leighton O’Brien’s precision integrity tank and line test; Dri-sump, an alternative to hydrostatic containment testing; and the LDT-890D/AF leak detector test, a certified test for all catastrophic leak detectors.

The comprehensive testing platform follows global licensing agreements with Pollok, Texas-based AC’CENT Environmental Services, developers of Dri-sump technology and Vaporless Manufacturing to distribute and market its line leak detector testing system.

The LDT-890D/AF leak detector tester can generate the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-mandated three gallons per hour (gph) at 10 pounds per square inch (psi) leak, and it automatically compensates for different fuel viscosities, thereby setting the correct leak rate adjusted for temperature, fuel viscosity and pump variables.

All three technologies are integrated into Leighton O’Brien’s cloud platformall results are digitally captured and centrally analyzed by an engineer. The technology supports technicians onsite with live volumetric test readings; however, the technician does not make the final call on results.

“Compliance Plus is truly a pivotal development for fuel retailers and c-stores to achieve network compliance. Our solution dramatically increases site uptime, lowers leak risks, and ensures digitally verified compliance with all EPA regulations,” said Reed Leighton, CEO of Leighton O’Brien.

 “We’re pleased to partner with Leighton O’Brien who is a leading global player in the compliance testing space. Our companies share a common vision of setting the digital standard for best-practice certified compliance solutions, providing unmatched accuracy and onsite verification of a leak rate,” said Greg Young, president of Vaporless Manufacturing, based in Prescott Valley, Ariz.

Compliance Plus is being rolled out across 44 states through Leighton O’Brien’s national testing network.
