Lokring Technology LLC is pleased to announce that the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) has recognized our patented Elastic Strain Preload (ESP®) technology and pipe and tube fittings as “weld equivalent connectors.” This is a significant achievement and recognition of Lokring Technology as these joints (connectors) are at minimum equivalent to a welded joint, and therefore “exempt from any and all monitoring requirements for purposes of fugitive emissions as specified in LAC 33: Part III. sections 21/21 and 21/22” (attached). Please reference pg.160-169 of The Environmental Regulatory Code (May 2012 revision), LAC33: Part III. Sections 21/21 and 21/22.
We would like to thank Andy Voda, Doc Morris, and Dave Schatz for their involvement in this project. Please refer to attached letter for more information.
