Common challenges in gas distribution systems


Properly maintained gas distribution systems are critical to ensuring refineries, research facilities, laboratories, and other industrial sites can operate safely and efficiently. Members of the team, such as lab and reliability managers, engineers, and operations staff, are tasked with ensuring the integrity of those gas distribution systems in support of a productive facility.

Many different factors, from design inefficiencies to malfunctioning components and beyond, can affect overall system performance. But it is not always easy to identify the problems involved in a complex gas distribution system. And if regular, detailed attention is not given to such a system, resulting operational inefficiencies can lead to extra spending and impact your facility’s bottom line.

It is likely opportunities exist to optimise your system to enhance safety and reduce its total operational costs. Those opportunities often include addressing two common issues experienced with gas distribution systems – pressure variances and leaks – as maintaining a properly functioning system can save money. Other opportunities may also arise when you bring in an external advisor to evaluate your system to ensure it is producing at peak performance.
