HF Acid Storage and Processing


A manufacturing facility utilized hydrofluoric acid and other hazardous materials in their processes.  Because of the hazards of the HF acid, a special leak detection and emergency response system was proposed.

Project Results

Ino-Tek provided a HF acid vapor leak detection system and installation drawings.  The system was installed by the owner and started up by Ino-Tek.  The system worked reliably for 10 years with very little site maintenance.  After 10 years of operation, the maintenance staff changed.  Ino-Tek returned to the site, re-calibrated the system and trained the new maintenance staff on the calibration procedures.
