LEAK DETECTION & REPAIR (LDAR)
Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR)
Reduce your VOC and methane emissions and save on operating costs with our Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) Program.
A comprehensive LDAR program will help you to reduce emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from your facility, helping you on your journey to Net Zero.
During an LDAR program we identify and repair leaking components, such as valves, pumps, and connectors, allowing you to minimise product loss, improve plant safety and comply with environmental regulations.
What are the benefits of LDAR?
- Save Money
- Comply with Legislation
- Increase Plant Safety Levels
- Improve Process Efficiency
- Screen Plant Emissions in Accordance to US EPA Method 21 & BS EN 15446
A Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) program helps you to identify and repair any unintended or fugitive emissions from equipment. This consequently means you will reduce your impact on the environment, enhance worker safety and improve process efficiency, saving you money.
Detecting leaks in your plant helps you to reduce your environmental impact by minimising the release of airborne pollution and contaminants.
Detecting and minimising leaking of VOCs from your plant will provide a healthier working environment for you and your employees. It will also reduce the health impact on surrounding communities.
A reduction in lost product (which would have been otherwise leaked to the environment) will result in financial benefits.
What is the Process?
An LDAR program is a structured process, it involves:
- Identifying process lines, valves and components
- Tagging valves in line with P&ID numbers and modify the line if necessary
- Recording emissions in the database, correlate values to plant leakage and report findings
- Repairing, replacing, overhauling
- Re-screening and auditing then measuring the emissions readings
OGI (Optimal Gas Imaging) cameras help us to survey and identify common industry leak sources quickly and from a safe distance.
These cameras are very sensitive and enable us to visualise gas emissions from leaking components within an installation.
OGI cameras are compliant with BS EN 15446 and US EPA Method 21.
