LDAR – Leak Detection and Repair – is a work practice designed to identify leaking equipment, such as pumps or valves, so that emissions can be reduced through repairs. Leak detection systems help locate and identify emissions. The several types of leak detection systems (LDS), for example acoustic, chemical and pressure. In this newssection you can find news related to LDAR.
