Fuel Leak Detection
sensing cable detects the presence of liquid organic solvents at any point along its length, yet it does not react to the presence of water. Installed with a TraceTek Sensor Interface Module and TraceTek Alarm Panel, the cable senses solvent liquid, triggers an alarm and pinpoints the location of the leak within one meter.
TT5000-HS sensing cables are primarily intended for use in underground (fuel or solvent) pipeline applications. These cables ignore water but will detect and locate (fuel or solvent) spills and leaks.
When used to monitor underground fuel pipelines, TT5000-HS sensing cables are typically installed within slotted conduit that is routed alongside the main pipeline. TT5000-HS sensing cable is designed for use within slotted PVC conduit and is constructed with an outer layer of polyethylene fibers to provide extra pulling strength and low friction during the installation process. The sensor cable core is standard TT5000 (for fuel) or TT5001 (for solvent) with well documented response times, numerous third-party qualifications and years of successful applications.

Distinctive appearance and ready for pipeline projects
TT5000-HS sensing cable has a glossy white outer layer of rope fibers. The polyethylene rope outer layer is fabricated with a number of individual filaments that collectively increase the pulling force limit to greater than 100 kg (220 lb). At the same time, the outer rope layer dramatically reduces frictional drag between the cable and the PVC conduit, thereby facilitating long distances between pull boxes. In many cases four lengths of TT5000-HS will be joined to form a single TraceTek circuit of 1000 meters. Multiple circuits can be monitored from a single location, thus permitting pipeline applications from a few hundred meters to many kilometers.
