ID-223 Data-sheet

ID-223 Overview

The LEAKWISE® ID-223 Sensor is installed in dry and wet sumps to detect oil leaks from above-ground oil storage, transformer wastewater discharge monitoring after treatment. Additional applications include detecting and monitoring floating hydrocarbons in sewer systems, waste water treatment systems, oil/water separators, cooling water trenches and canals, storm water run-offs, retention ponds and sumps, and boiler condensate tanks. The ID-223 has three different models with range of detection from 40 to 2500 mm (ID-223/500, ID-223/2000, ID-223/2500).
The ID-223 can detect as little as 0.3 mm layer of oil on water reliably, repeatedly, and without false alarms. It can also monitor on-line changes in oil layer thickness. The signal processor relays can initiate both local and remote alarms, as well as control. Continuous built-in diagnostics monitor sensor operations.
The ID-223's high frequency transmitter is mounted on a patented float built in a guiding cage, which maintains its position precisely at the liquid/air interface, despite fluctuations in the liquid level. It has two field adjustable alarm points:
  • Low oil alarm — Detection of a predefined layer of hydrocarbons
  • High oil alarm — Detection of a hydrocarbon layer at a second predefined thickness
A stilling well is recommended for all ID-223 installations.
