Factory engineers need to pay attention to different methods and instruments to detect leaks

All the points where the leakage occurs can be detected by using different methods and instrumentation which a plant engineer need to note. The critical points where leakage occurs include the flanged gasket joints as well as the pump/valve gland packing, etc. Nowadays, most of the process industries are moving towards the use of safer technology so as to enhance the environmental protection and it has become a duty for the engineers to design plants which will helps in limiting the damage which occur in the environment by the prevention of leakage of oil, gases and other forms of toxic chemicals. The leakage from the stuffing box and valve glands is a major concern for the plant or maintenance engineer, this is because the leakage will result to atmospheric pollution, loss of materials and it is also dangerous for employees of the company. For instance, if there is a steam leaking through the valve gland, a space of 0.001″ via the gland will result to a rate of 25 lb/hour; this will result to a loss of about 1,100 per year. in addition to that, a tiny drop of 0.4mm diameter per second will result to a waste of about 200 liters per year of costly solvent, gas or oil.
