Safety, Leak Detection & Mass Balance

Leak Detection allows a process plant to know if they have any fugitive emissions or if they are unnecessarily losing product.

  • This is accomplished by completing a mass balance around a particular unit operation.
  • The law of conservation of mass states that mass cannot be created or destroyed. Mass into a system has to equal mass out of the system.
  • If these measurements of mass do not equal each other, there is a possible leak or fugitive emission in the system.
