This smart gearbox detects fugitive emissions

By Chemical Engineering |

This company is developing a smart gearbox designed with an extra function for leak detection. The patent-pending Fugitive Emission Detector Gearbox forms an integral part of the valve operation and is not an external measurement device. It accurately detects leakage within the cavity formed between the valve and valve operator. Live and continuous information is relayed via a wired or wireless network to the desired location. The prompt notification of fugitive emissions to the appropriate personnel facilitates significant reductions in the severity of any leaks and the timely repair or replacement of leaking equipment, says the company. In addition to the direct detection of leaking fluids, the system can be used as a diagnostic tool to minimize the need for preventive maintenance. — Rotork Plc., Bath, U.K.
