Sophisticated liquid leak detection systems have the capability to detect and locate strong mineral acids (Sulfuric, Nitric) which have been used in mining, dump leaching and mineral processing applications as well as acetic acid used in phthalate plants.
Specially designed and highly reactive sensing cables, when combined with an advanced alarm and locating module, can detect the presence of conductive liquids at any point along its length. Most acids and bases and even de-ionized water can be sensed and located. When the cable senses the presence of fluid, it triggers an alarm and pinpoints the location. These systems are designed for a variety of applications, including floor surfaces, sub-floors, equipment locations, pipes, storage tanks, and trenches
