Leakwise sensors offer the best possible solution for the early detection of both types of oil spills. They are highly sensitive, capable of detecting as little as 0.3mm of hydrocarbon in the water. Nor is there any lag time – as soon as the oil makes contact with the sensor, the data is processed and sent to controller, in accordance with the adjustable sensitivity setting he decided upon. Furthermore, certain leakwise setting can detect soil, as well as water, contamination, increasing the versatility of their deployment. The Leakwise sensor interfaces with the control center via relay contact, enabling the user to monitor for oil spills and control the sensor settings from afar, granting access to even the most logistically difficult sites.
