Rebellion systems perform wide scans of storage tanks to check for gas collecting around thief hatches, piping, and venting areas. Real-time images can detect faulty equipment and uncover poor maintenance practices, which often lead to excessive gas emissions and result in potential shutdowns, economic loss, environmental damage, regulatory fines, and compromised plant and public safety.
Detecting unknown leaks allows for better preventive maintenance planning and repair, thus significantly reducing overall tank emissions and the amount of VOCs entering the atmosphere from a variety of over a thousand potential leak points.
With continual monitoring of all tank farms, leak detection can be centrally fed to a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for quick and responsive operational decisions. Real-time detection is critical with slow leaks from tanks as time can act as an enemy, ultimately causing more costs and out-of-service time.
