Flow Switches for Oil/Gas Refinery Water Treatment
applications that range from pump protection to valve leak detection. In selecting a flow switch for refinery water applications, the first step is choosing the appropriate flow switch technology. There are numerous flow switch sensing technologies available from multiple manufacturers. They all have
Detection of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) with a Spectrally Filtered Cooled Mid-Wave Infrared Camera
The world's petrochemical industry is constantly seeking methods for the detection of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) such as benzene, propane and methane. Leaks of such materials all too often lead to catastrophic equipment damage and loss of life. EPA regulations require reduction
The detection of Total Organic Chloride and/or Hydrogen Chloride
Halogenated hydrocarbons and hydro halogenated compounds are found in a wide variety of chemical, petrochemical and refinery processes. Interest in detecting the total of these types of compounds arises in monitoring ambient air for leaks, spills or personnel protection and in. monitoring feed
Methods for Checking/Auditing Pipe Flanges, Pressurized Connections and Other Critical Fastened Joints
The Clean Air Act requires refineries to develop and implement a Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) program to control fugitive emissions. Fugitive emissions occur from valves, pumps, compressors, pressure relief valves, flanges, connectors and other piping components. A study conducted
Protecting the First Responders
for that reason. Emergency response to a refinery fire, overturned tanker, terrorist alert or chemical leak must include the use of atmospheric monitors for protection of the first responders investigating the incident. Firefighters, hazardous materials (HazMat) teams and law enforcement personnel should
