|The Leakwise ID-225 not only detects oil sheens,
but can measure its thickness.
The Leakwise ID-225 Oil Thickness Sensor measures the thickness and monitors the buildup of hydrocarbons and other organic solvents on water. The ID-225 detects sheens as low as 1.0 mm and measures hydrocarbon thickness from 1-200 mm. Many petroleum and power companies use the ID-225 for early detection, warning, and control of oil leaks and spills in the following applications:
