ID-227 Data-sheet

ID-227 for Marine Applications

The LEAKWISE ID-227 Oil Sheen Sensor is designed for installation at offshore oil tanker buoy terminals, jetties, and piers to detect floating oil sheens resulting from oil spills or leaks occurring during the loading and offloading process. Additional applications include detecting and monitoring floating hydrocarbons in lagoons, lakes, rivers, open channels, large retention ponds, and near offshore oil rigs.
The ID-227 System consists of a:
  • Sensor with a high frequency transmitter mounted on a wave rider float
  • Separate controller
  • Cable connecting the sensor and controller (wired model only)
The wave rider float is designed to maintain the position of the detecting antenna at the liquid/air interface, despite fluctuations in the water level due to waves and tide. 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
