pressure. The leak check should be performed with an inert gas, and care should be taken not to over pressurize any components of the system. If the . system is not rated for full cylinder pressure, a pressure-reducing regulator must be used and the system should be protected with a pressure-relief device. Leak-check the system at its working pressure.
Campus Emergency Planning and Procedure - Natural gas leak
Accidents happen. It's just a fact of life. Boilers are incredibly complex machines, with hundreds of intricate parts working together under enormous operating stress. It's inevitable that things will sometimes go wrong. When there is a boiler emergency, it is always helpful to have a contingency plan. Don't get caught unprepared.
Natural Gas Leaks. View Emergency Action Plan as a PDF. Natural gas is a staple of many of building heating/hot water systems, and gas metering devices external to most facilities are equipped with pressure equalization controls that intentionally but periodically "burp.". Further, natural gas is laden with mercaptans, which is a chemical added to the fuel to easily permit its detection by odor.
