Reduce Fugitive Emissions And Improve Safety

June 26, 2020
The key to maintaining leak-free systems in an empowered workforce.

Most consumers do not stop to think about the complexities that go into the production of everyday necessities. But industrial professionals involved in the making of plastics, gasoline, and all manner of other petrochemicals know these products are the result of critical, complicated processes, often involving the use of a variety of volatile and unstable chemicals.

It is critically important that all systems responsible for containing and transporting process gases like hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen sulfide, and other harmful substances operate free of leaks. When these sorts of chemicals do escape a critical system – commonly referred to as a fugitive emission – the health and safety of both employees and the broader community is placed at risk.

So, how can plants maintain leak-free systems? It comes down to their operational teams and how well trained they are in understanding and proactively addressing fugitive emission leaks.
