LeakHawk™ Detects Pump Leaks to Help Stop Fugitive Emissions

WELKER > News > LeakHawk™ Detects Pump Leaks to Help Stop Fugitive Emissions

Meet ESG Targets With Welker’s Newest Instrumentation Product

Sugar Land, Texas – 14 December 2021 – Welker, Inc. today announces the addition of the patent-pending LeakHawk™ Leak Detection Manifold to its portfolio of solutions designed to help companies fulfill their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) commitments. The LeakHawk™ is now the third Welker solution designed specifically to help reduce emissions.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the authority to set limits on the release of pollutants under the Clean Air Act (CAA). The CAA requires the routine monitoring for leaks and repair of leaking equipment at refineries and other stationary sources of emissions. According to EPA studies, leaking equipment is the largest source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and volatile hazardous air pollutants (VHAPs) emissions from petroleum refineries and chemical manufacturing facilities, and timely leak detection and repair can reduce fugitive emissions by up to 90%.

The purpose of the LeakHawk™ is to capture such fugitive emissions before they enter the atmosphere. When installed to a pump, the LeakHawk™ provides advanced on-site or remote notification of the need for pump seal maintenance. This allows for a leak to be caught and repaired proactively before a formal compliance inspection, helping to prevent enforcement actions and fees. For this reason, the LeakHawk™ is a simple, cost-effective device that can be used to increase the effectiveness of a Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) program, which has the added benefits of protecting the health and safety of personnel and the surrounding community and reducing product loss.
