New Pig, the leading brand that helps workplaces manage leaks, drips and spills to create safer, cleaner and more productive environments, has introduced a solution to two critical spill preparedness questions – "what are the risks in my facility?", and, "how exactly can I reduce spill risks?" - with an exclusive, patent pending algorithm. While the data gathering takes only minutes for a facility, the powerful algorithm performs more than 600 physics-driven calculations for each liquid area to help facilities understand their own specific spill risks and the steps necessary to reduce risk. A new analysis shows that 94% of facilities have at least one critical spill risk, and many facilities that believe they are prepared are significantly underprepared for even incidental spills.
The algorithm asks six simple questions per area and takes less than 3 minutes per area to gather data. Questions include type of area (e.g. battery storage, fuel station), volume of the largest liquid container, primary types of liquids stored or used in this area (e.g. water-based, corrosives.) When completed, the worksheet is emailed or texted to New Pig. A comprehensive written report of nine risk factors in each area and potential spill diameters is provided in a few days. Importantly, the report includes a view of spill risks across entire facility and exact steps to take to aid in compliance.
