Nationwide Leak Detection and Repair
What is LDAR?
Leak Detection and Repair, or LDAR, is a work practice to identify equipment leaking hazardous pollutants. Through a good LDAR program, dangerous emissions can be reduced through repairs. A component subject to LDAR requirements must be monitored at specified, regular intervals to determine whether or not it is leaking. Any leaking part must be repaired or replaced within an established time frame.
LDAR programs reduce product losses, increase workers’ safety, decrease the surrounding community’s exposure, reduce emissions fees, and help facilities avoid enforcement actions.

How Are Emissions From Equipment Leaks Reduced?
Emissions from equipment can be effectively minimized or completely eliminated through the implementation of a Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) program or the installation of specialized technology designed to prevent leaks. In fact, many equipment leak regulations permit a combination of both control methods to achieve optimal results.
Methods such as Method 21 and Optical Gas Imaging have demonstrated their effectiveness in reducing thousands of tons of volatile air pollutants and organic hazardous air pollutants annually. Compliance with these methods is often a legal requirement for many programs. With decades of experience in comprehending and applying federal and state regulations, we possess a deep understanding of the most effective equipment, software, and practices needed to ensure your program not only meets but also surpasses the stringent scrutiny imposed by the EPA and other state agencies.
