Automotive R & D Test Lab: Flammable Gas Leak Investigation
Background & Problem
A global automotive manufacturer’s R & D center has an extensive gas detection system. In one of the fueling rooms, a flammable gas sensor kept routinely alarming. The site contracted Ino-Tek to determine the cause of the leak and to resolve the alarm.
Consulting Scope of Work
The facility’s hired Ino-Tek to provide a project manager and a gas detection system expert to evaluate the fueling room. Ino-Tek brought a portable flammable gas detection system on-site.
Ino-Tek worked with the facility team to recreate the normal activities conducted in the fueling room. Working with the facility team, they were able to locate a small leak in a fueling system. This leak created a flammable condition only under certain conditions. By working together, the team was able to repair the leak and eliminate a potentially flammable situation.
Many new construction projects require gas or liquid leak detection. Many large buildings have chillers that contain refrigerants that must be monitored for leaks. Many industrial facilities have gases stored on site, or processes that create gases, which require leak detection.
If a project you’re working on, or bidding, has a specified gas detection system or liquid leak detection system, Ino-Tek can provide a cost effective solution. Ino-Tek can provide systems at a competitive cost and can meet the most demanding schedules.
If you need a system to detect leaks in an on-going project, we can design a solution that meets your budget and your expectations.
Code Compliance Audit
After a Hazard Analysis is completed, a code compliance audit should be performed. A code compliance audit starts by identifying all standards to which a facility is presently required to comply. These standards generally include building and fire codes. Some facilities are required to comply with various corporate standards. Some companies have policies in addition to engineering standards.
After the relevant laws, standards, and codes are identified, the site is evaluated for compliance with these rules. This is the audit. This audit should include written findings. These findings should numerate the relevant rules and the status of the site’s compliance with each requirement.
After the PHA and the code compliance audit are completed, the outline for a project scope can be developed.
Ino-Tek has completed these services for many clients. Experts on staff can complete these reports quickly, efficiently, and thoroughly.
