|The Leakwise ID-223 operates in dry and
wet sumps, open channels, and catch basins.
The Leakwise® ID-223 Sensor is installed in dry and wet sumps to detect oil leaks from above-ground oil storage, transformer wastewater discharge monitoring after treatment. Additional applications include detecting and monitoring floating hydrocarbons in sewer systems, waste water treatment systems, oil/water separators, cooling water trenches and canals, storm water run-offs, retention ponds and sumps, and boiler condensate tanks. The ID-223 has three different models with range of detection from 40 to 2500 mm (ID-223/500, ID-223/2000, ID-223/2500).
The ID-223 can detect as little as 0.3 mm layer of oil on water reliably, repeatedly, and without false alarms. It can also monitor on-line changes in oil layer thickness. The signal processor relays can initiate both local and remote alarms, as well as control. Continuous built-in diagnostics monitor sensor operations.
The ID-223's high frequency transmitter is mounted on a patented float built in a guiding cage, which maintains its position precisely at the liquid/air interface, despite fluctuations in the liquid level. It has two field adjustable alarm points:
A stilling well is recommended for all ID-223 installations.
|The ID-233 comes in three models which measure
water level fluctuations up to 500 mm (19.7 in),
2000 mm (6.6 ft), or 2500 mm (8.2 ft).
The ID-223 floating sensor is capable of monitoring hydrocarbons and other organic solvents on flowing water and in wet and dry sumps. Specifications include:
