VALVE INSTALLATION: Best Practices for Fugitive Emissions Service
10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon
This training will focus on identifying best practices in regards to valve packing installation as outlined by the FSA. The best valve packing installed incorrectly will not ensure compliance to LDAR requirements. It is imperative that a plant have a serious, focused, approach to this important subject. One way to improve this is by creating a continuous improvement process regarding valve packing that is fact based and focusing on identifying and classifying root causes of packing performance.
FLANGE SEALING INSTALLATION: Best Practices
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Flange leakage in emissions service can result in lost production and money. If a plant is going to reduce emissions at a plant, one important step that is often overlooked is procedures of flange sealing. This training will focus on the FSA’s best practices for successful flange sealing, including gasket seating stresses, torque calculations, and gasket selection.
