Fuel Leak Detection
sensing cable detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels 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 the hydrocarbon liquid, triggers an alarm and pinpoints the location of the leak within one meter.
The TT5000-HUV is a fuel sensing cable that can detect and locate spills of gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, crude oil, and similar hydrocarbon liquids. It will not detect or react to water. The TT5000-HUV cable is designed for use on the above-ground pipe, around pump pads or valves where the cable will be exposed to sunlight and weather during its service life.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Early detection of fuel at any point along its length
- Real-time alerts
- Easy to install
- Low maintenance
- Water and chemically resistant cable.
- Can withstand rigor installation and long years of long years of service with exposure to rain, snow, sunlight and similar weather stresses
- Can be monitored by Tracetek Module
Distinctive appearance and ready for refinery, tank farm and terminal applications
TT5000-HUV sensing cable has a matte black rope outer layer with a red tracer stripe. The rope outer layer is fabricated with thousands of individual filaments that add strength and excellent protection from the damaging effects of direct sunlight exposure. Additionally, this rope layer makes the sensor cable resistant to kinks and pliable, yet rugged enough for installation and long service life in pipe applications. The sensor cable can have connectors wherever necessary; can be branched as needed and in general can be tailored to match the piping network. Circuits up to 1000 meters can be constructed by connecting individual segments. Multiple circuits can be monitored from a single control room location.
