|LDEQ Accident Number
|Point Source(s)||Notes||Amount of Release|
|G-22 relief valve||Cause: During operation of the G-22 unit the South Joy compressor was over pressurized causing a relief valve in the inner cooler portion of the machinery to lift. The relief valve failed to reseat properly causing a realase of 3580 lbs of Chlorodifluoromethane (G-22).|
|pressure transmitter||Cause: The plant was in the process of repairing a pressure transmitter. When the transmitter was isolated for repair, this inadvertently caused an over pressure of the system.|
Notes: DUring the over pressure, the relief valves on the system opened as designed. The relief valves vented through the low pressure scrubber system and then to the air.
