LEAKWISE sensors use a patented, high-frequency Electromagnetic Absorption Technique to perform hydrocarbons layer measurement on water. Each floating sensor houses a high-frequency electromagnetic energy transmitter and a receiving antenna which continuously monitor the liquid surface. Since water absorbs more electromagnetic energy than hydrocarbons, changes in the absorption rate of water indicate the presence or buildup of hydrocarbons.
The LEAKWISE sensors not only enable reliable detection of hydrocarbons, but also measure the thickness of the hydrocarbon layers and the percent of water in oily emulsions.
LEAKWISE sensors can also be used to detect the interface between any two immiscible liquids with different absorption rates. No other hydrocarbon leak detection or alert system does this.
Hydrocarbon leak alert
The need for hydrocarbons leak alert is particularly acute for petrochemical facilities, both refineries and storage sites.
