Leakage collection reservoir


The EagleBurgmann leakage control systems of the LSA6000 range in accordance with API Plan 65A consist of a leakage collection tank with integrated orifice and overflow pipe. The level can be monitored with the differential pressure transmitter which is supplied together with a five-way manifold valve.


  • Seal failure detection
  • Safe discarding of excessive seal leakage
  • To ensure durability, all components are corrosion resistant.

Standards and approvals

  • API 682 / ISO 21049
  • API 682 4th ed. Cat. 2/3 - 1CW-FL
  • API 682 4th ed. Cat. 1 - 1CW-FX

Functional description

In accordance with API Plan 65A, the LSA6000 leakage control system is used to discharge leakage from single seals. The outboard leakage is collected in an external tank; the leakage volume is monitored (level in the tank).
