When oil separators in such facilities fail to manage large amounts of water, then water pollution might rapidly follow. If no hydrocarbons leak alert system is installed, however, it may be some time before the leak is detected. That is why an on-line hydrocarbons leak detection system is so critical.
The LEAKWISE hydrocarbon leak detection sensors combine several features which improve leak detection reliability including digital sensing, increased sensitivity and alarm filtering – adjustment of the alarm threshold to reduce the incidence of false positives. In addition to these features the LEAKWISE hydrocarbon leak detection sensors are robust, enjoying a long lifetime and continued performance even following persistent contact with hydrocarbon polluted water.
The Leakwise hydrocarbon leak detection sensor is applicable to a variety of environments including but not limited to petrochemical facilities, power generation and distribution plants, transportation centers and thoroughfares, manufacturing, water treatment and offshore sites.
