How The Sniffers can Help You with Your KPI for Tank Emission, Flare & Steam Loss Reduction on Your Tanks

Storage tanks are an integral part of the chemical industry and are confronted with multiple challenges. Safety and protection of the environment are the first priority, which means correct storage is crucial as above-ground storage tanks contain hazardous substances. Furthermore, early leak detection is crucial to prevent maintenance and product- and energy savings need to be realised.

To help you with these challenges, The Sniffers will focus during this webinar on the latest practices and how to achieve results by using quantification of leaks with High Flow Sampling and Optical Gas Imaging, Infrared thermography on tanks, diffusion of VOC’s during loading/unloading and reduction of steam and flare losses on your tanks.

Register today to guarantee a safe work environment, protect the environment, to prevent early maintenance and minimize product loss.
