Escaping hot water can be as equally a damaging as spilt oil or chemicals to the environment, plus if unchecked can have a massive impact on energy bills
Every year millions of MW of energy are lost due to spills of hot or boiling process water and if these spills directly into a watercourse the spill can literally cook the aquatic life or lead to a massive explosion in populations of toxin producing blue green alge etc. Further, water containing anti-freeze and corrosion inhibitors can be toxic in its own right.
We have the technology to not only look for spilt chemicals but to spot excessive discharges of hot water or where the water resource is used as a legitimate source of cooling water, proactively watch out for excessive river temperature rise.
Upon detection it is possible to contain a spill of hot water much the same way as a spill of chemicals using one of our DrainstopperTM or FlapstopperTM systems
