Ammonia Leak Detection Requirements


Thread Starter

Ron Wensley

The site I am at has an aqueous ammonia storage tank inside of a concrete containment. There are no leak detectors installed. If there is a code requirement for this I need a reference.

I did a controls job in an anhydrous plant and had this power point slide given to me. Don't know if it will help or hinder . .
