New Acid Leak Detection Sensor Cables

Product Announcement from Pentair Thermal Management

New Acid Leak Detection Sensor Cables-Image

The new TraceTek® TT7000 Sensor Cable from Tyco Thermal Controls provides early warning of leaks resulting from corrosion of fittings, valves, transfer piping and storage tanks through a local, networked or remote digital alarm system, so that you can take action before the damage is done.

TraceTek® TT7000 Sensor Cable detects leaks and spills of strong mineral acids such as sulfuric and nitric acid at any point along the cable length. When used in conjunction with TraceTek monitoring instruments, the cable senses the presence of acid, triggers an alarm and pinpoints the location of the acid contact to within +/- 1 meter accuracy.

Typical applications include:

  • Oil refining
  • Wastewater processing
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Mining
  • Ore processing and smelting
  • Plating facilities
  • Fertilizer manufacturing

TT7000 Sensor Cable provides distributed leak detection and location along the entire run of cable. Cable can be installed around localized sources of acid leakage (e.g. valves, pumps and tanks) as well as along pipelines carrying acid.

Individual circuit lengths up to 1000 m can be monitored from a single sensor interface module (SIM). Multiple SIMs can be easily networked to provide extended coverage in chemical complexes or along pipelines. Alarm and control panels with capacity for up to 127 SIMs are standard. TraceTek Supervisor (for Windows PC) is available for stand alone installations, or the SIM units can be directly connected to the facility alarm and control systems.
