Most sources of fugitive emissions are from multiple points rather than single point sources. So, open path area or perimeter monitoring provides more meaningful fugitive emissions data than an array of point sensors or a program of grab sampling. Point measurements may underestimate emissions because of missing locations with high gas concentrations, or conversely overestimate because they are located in areas of high concentrations. Grab sampling programs typically check only a small percentage of potential leak locations and extrapolate results to an entire facility. Wide margins of uncertainty are associated with such extrapolations. Open path monitoring provides continuously updated, real-time, integrated emissions across a facility boundary.This provides a complete picture of the fugitive emissions across that boundary,enabling identification of specific operations and times that give rise to higher emissions, and so enabling these emissions to be properly managed and controlled.

Now more than ever, government is feeling the pressure to become more efficient and effective. State regulatory agencies, city transit authorities, and municipalities with vision are turning to Titan in record numbers to take their fuel and environmental management practices to a whole new level. If you want to make a difference in your organization without spinning up another large, costly project that may take years to implement, try subscribing to the Titan cloud. Our software is already built and currently stores all critical compliance data for 60,000 underground storage tanks (USTs), including tanks in every state in the union and many Canadian provinces. It is far-and-away the industry`s leading compliance solution. In addition to compliance management, our state-of-the-art polling engine (co-developed with Veeder-Root) connects tens of thousands of ATGs to poll for inventory, alarm, and sensor data in mere seconds. This advanced technology can be tailored to meet your current fuel, environmental, and UST-facility management objectives, whatever they may be.
