Vapor Identification

New technology is being implemented across the tank farms. These technologies include instruments that help detect and monitor vapors and gases, and provide the data needed to evaluate potential risk in a given area.

Washington River Protection Solutions is conducting a series of pilot-scale tests at Hanford’s tank farms. In order to prove the systems can monitor and detect potentially hazardous conditions, the instruments need to detect released vapors, transmit the data to the data acquisition system, and provide real-time meteorological conditions within a specified area.
