Oil Leak Detection System
Why need an oil leak detection kit?
Components of an oil leak detection system.
A robust oil leak detection kit should have highly efficient components. Primarily, it includes a fuel leak detection system, fuel leak sensors, and accessories. The efficiency of such a system depends on the quality of the individual components. CtrlTech uses top-notch material to offer our clients the best sensing and detection services. Our sole goal is to protect users’ assets by delivering the best service.
Oil leak detection alarm.
It is the heart of any liquid leak detector. It takes the signal from the sensor, processes it, and generates notifications by audio, visual, email, and SMS. Leak panels are used to locate the region of the leak. Some panels can notify the exact location of the leak and others the defined zone. Based on it, there are two types of leak detection panels; a Zone and Addressable detection. One can use any oil leak detection system depending on the application and industry requirements.
Addressable fuel leak detection panel. (Distance read).
Zone oil leak detection (Nonlocating panel).
Unlike the locating oil leakage detection panel, this system detects a zone or an area where the oil leakage occurs. This system comes in two variants; one is single-zone detection, where there is only one terminal connected to the sensor. It is ideal for small areas like the oil trench around the tank.
A multi-zone leak detection system also has multiple terminals connected with the sensor. These multi-zone leak detection panels can be used when a large area with different sections. It is used in fuel oil tanks park, fuel feed pipelines, boiler houses, & plant rooms. Also, we can connect Zone-based systems with wire, probe, pot, or point oil leak detection sensors. It is the most cost-effective solution.
Oil leak sensor.
Oil leak sensors employ different detection methods to sense and raise the alarm regarding the oil leak. Either sensing cable or Spot detector can be used for the system, depending on what are the industry requirements.
Digital oil leak detection cable.
Oil leak detection system needs top-quality sensing cables that are non-responsive to moisture and are reusable. Amongst all, cable fuel sensors possess the highest probability of leakage detection. These oil leakage sensor wires are susceptible to Hydrocarbon and can detect even a minor oil spill. These cables consist of multiple conductor plates. The current flows in these conductors continuously. When the oil comes in contact with these cables, the circuit is shorted, and the alarm is triggered. Due to digital leak addressing, it can sense multiple leaks and the distance of these leaks simultaneously.
Spot oil leak detector.
As the name suggests, these oil detection sensors sense the leakage at any particular point. It is not congenial with a distance measuring oil leak detection kit. Probe sensors have two open terminals facing toward the ground. There is a facility to adjust the height of the terminal from the bottom to increase or decrease sensitivity. Oil leakage will only get detected when leaked oil comes under this probe and touches its terminals. Ans, when these Hydrocarbon sensitive terminals contact the oil, the circuit completes, triggering an alarm in the system.
Accessories of oil leak detectors.
Installation and commissioning of oil leak detection units need many accessories other than a panel and sensors. These accessories include some item that helps fix and some to enhance system features.
An oil leak detection kit is supplied with adhesive clips, name tags, leader cable, screws to mount panel, power adaptor, etc. As an option, users can buy additional items like an SMS kit, IP65 encloser box, and POE box.
These clips are used to lay down wire leak sensors on the ground. It has a strong adhesive on one side to hold the cable firm. For large spaces, these clips help to arrange oil leak detector cable as per drawing to detect leakages as quickly as possible.
The SMS module sends alarm alerts about the oil detection system to the user’s phone number in the form of SMSs. Based on the license, users can configure two to three mobile numbers for the notification. This system is recommended for remote sites.
