Fuel Leak Detection
sensing cable detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels at any point along its length, yet does not react to the presence of water. Installed with a TraceTek alarm and locating module, the cable senses the liquid, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location of the leak within one meter.
TraceTek uses radiation-crosslinking and conductive polymer technology to make TT5000 sensing cable mechanically strong and chemically resistant. The core of the cable is constructed of two sensing wires, an alarm signal wire, and a continuity wire. The core is encased in a conductive-polymer jacket and surrounded with a fluoropolymer braid. This rugged construction allows the cable to perform reliably in the most demanding environments.
