Rayten Engineering Solutions conduct LDAR programs throughout Southern Africa and globally in accordance with US EPA Method 21. The petroleum, tar and organic chemical industries are required to conduct LDAR programs as per the legislated listed activities.
The aim of LDAR surveys is to detect and notify the customer of any leaking equipment; including valves, pumps and connectors, in order to reduce the emissions of fugitive volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). It is the most effective method of controlling fugitive emissions on site.
Rayten Engineering uses approved leak detection methods and equipment (FID & PID monitors and gas detection cameras) to determine the concentrations in parts per million (ppm) of any leaking equipment.
The LDAR Process:
- Identify process lines and components with the Client and P&IDs;
- Tagging components;
- Record emissions on a database;
- Reporting findings;
- Repair, replace and overhaul leaking components (Client scope);
- Re-measure to ensure leak free.
