Ecomap™

“Environmental Compliance Maintenance Program”

VSP is positioned to assist its customers with its environmental needs as they relate to fluid sealing issues. Ecomap™ was designed to incorporate specific, environmentally sound practices as a part of our customers’ sustainable performances. It is especially useful for customers who are aiming for air quality-related consent order compliance, addressing restricted emissions allowances, or otherwise desiring to achieve Best Available Control Technology (BACT) standards. Specific Ecomap™ features include:

  • Assistance with establishing sustainable fluid sealing process management protocols
  • Training on gasket selection, low-E valve packing, flange assembly, and more for site personnel
  • Extensive database of chemical compatibility, min/max sealing stress, ROTT data, gasket performance capabilities/limitations, and thermal performance for an array of gaskets materials, brands, and styles
  • In-house testing capabilities concerning creep/relaxation analysis, seal-ability tests, load/deflection testing, and temperature limit confirmation
  • Support from VSP’s senior environmental engineer in providing technical support such as document review, gasket emission comparisons, toxic release inventory calculations, and assistance with regulatory agency and other meetings
  • VSP’s Gasket Leakage Calculator™(GLC™) developed to provide relative emission rates for gasket materials being considered in a particular application based on numerous factors specific to the relevant plant or operating/processing area. The GLC™ is being used to identify lowest emission gaskets — a helpful tool for meeting BACT requirements.
