The ball joints at this concentrating solar plant (solar trough system) are leaking HTF (dowtherm), causing unmonitored emissions. You can replace leaky, high-maintenance ball joints with flexible braided-metal hoses. In this instance we're replacing 3 ball joints with just 1 hose. The hoses also include a fail-safe so if they rupture they won't leak.
