If you need custom LDAR Tags to work with your LDAR program and asset management system, NB&T’s customizable tags can meet your needs. Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) regulations were put into place by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) because of the amount of volatile organic compounds and volatile hazardous air pollutants being emitted by leaking equipment such as valves and pumps.
Tagging is an important component of any LDAR program because everything needs an ID. Every regulated component (valve/pump/connectors/compressors/etc.) must have a unique identification number, along with an identified location. An LDAR program is the system of procedures a facility uses to locate and repair leaking components. This minimizes the emission of fugitive volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants. Asset management systems that utilize LDAR Tags can help monitor the lifecycles of these components, as well as help perform reliability studies on equipment. Knowing when equipment needs repair or replacing ahead of time reduces time and increases efficiency.
