Mechanical Integrity of Small Diameter Tubing

Graham Marshall - Saturday, May 19, 2012

Enclosed here is this months Process Safety Beacon with an interesting feature regarding the mechanical integrity of small-bore tubing.

The beacon highlights that the proper installation, maintenance, and inspection of metal tubing is important in preventing fires and toxic material releases in major hazard facilities.

It warns that you shouldn't forget about tubing just because it is of a small diameter.

Even a small leak from tubing can cause a fire which can grow much larger, and small releases of toxic materials also can be dangerous.
