Ethanol Leak Detection System

Background

An ethanol refinery had a series of outdoor storage tanks containing ethanol.  The facility wanted a gas detection and emergency alarm system to monitor for leaks around the storage tanks.  They contacted Ino-Tek to survey the area and propose available detection technology.

Project Results

Ino-Tek identified and evaluated different leak detection technology for the refinery.  After reviewing their options, the facility chose to install an open path gas detection system.  This system established a series of paths around the tank farm area.  This technology has proved to be accurate, reliable, and low maintenance.
