Nearly 100 participants joined ILTA for the Third Annual Terminal Operating Practices Symposium on September 24 via the Zoom virtual meeting platform.

Eight member-company representatives gave 13 presentations throughout the day. Topics included:

  • LPG coupler failure
  • Marine loading arm incidents and their related failure causes
  • Pump maintenance and pump and valve failures
  • Microbial management in product storage tanks
  • Internal floating roof incidents
  • Turbine meters and the use of dual pulse signals
  • Hydrogen Sulfide exposure reduction strategies for off-loading asphalt

The TOPS event remains one of ILTA’s most popular educational offerings. Presentations approved by presenter’s employers are available for sharing with other terminal operating companies.
