M Squared Packing Leak Detector

The Packing Leak Detector (PLD) helps reduce leak rates to near zero. Methane leaks from compressor packing glands are common and result in lost revenue and can lead to environmental penalties. The PLD provides mechanical or digital notification of a leak allowing for early intervention and remedy.

Description

Save Gas | Save Money | Increase the Bottom Line

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that packing leaks in over 200,000 cylinders release 65 billion cubic feet of natural gas annually to the atmosphere. Compressor packing leaks result in $91 billion in methane energy loss.


Minimize Leak Impacts

The Packing Leak Detector (PLD) helps reduce leak rates to near zero. Methane leaks from compressor packing glands are common and result in lost revenue and can lead to environmental penalties. The PLD provides mechanical or digital notification of a leak allowing for early intervention and remedy.

As packing rings wear, gas migrates along piston rods to packing case vent cups. Gas flows through vent lines to connected PLDs. As leaking pressure achieves specified thresholds, PLDs provide mechanical visual leak indications and send electronic signals via transmitters to PLD Human Machine Interface (HMI) monitor panels.

Packing Leak Detectors Can Help Determine

  • Over-lubrication
  • Packing gland health
  • Improper packing material
  • Incorrect packing installation
  • Piston rod hardness/smoothness

Benefits

  • Low maintenance
  • Simple installation
  • 24 X 7 local monitoring
  • Multiple service compressors usability
  • Engineered for different gases & varying rates
  • Establish ZERO leak baseline for your equipment
  • Costs less than 0.25% of the annual lost methane revenue
  • Monitor panels remotely access temperature/pressure data
