Refinery Leaks

Hi -
I am trying to estimate the amount of fugitive emissions from domestic petrochem plants,
especially leaks from in-service process piping.
Would anyone be able to assist me ?
Thanks much,
David

Re: Refinery Leaks
Part of our core business. We assist people in moving towards zero flareing and provide the only fully quantitative leak detection system on the market.
You need to be very specific about what you want to do:
Statistically most losses are through leaking valves into the flare system. 5-10% of valves leak and 2-3% of valves are responsible for 70% of the losses in a refinery.
We have over 200 facilities worldwide using the VPAC 5131 system which uses software developed by BP and exclusively sold under licence.
We also provide airborne leak detection equipment.
Low frequency detection equipment for high sensitivity loss surveys on piping.
Permanent monitoring sensors and alram systems which can be fed into your DCS systems.
Send me more details on what you want to achieve and we can forward litreature or arrange demonstrations.
