Oil Leak Detection Cable

  • Oil Leak Detection Cable detects the presence of Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuels at any point along its length, yet does not react to the presence of water.
  • Installed with a locating module, the cable senses the liquid, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location of the leak within one meter.


Distributed Sensing

  • P-LFP6000 Oil Leak Detection Cable provides distributed leak detection and location for a wide range of applications.
  • The cable is available in a variety of length to provide as much coverage as needed.


Design Flexibility

  • P-LFP6000 sensing cable can be purchased in bulk form, cut to length in the field and joined using connector kits,or it can be obtained in standard lengths with connectors attached in the factory.
  • These modular sensing cables may be connected in series to provide distributed monitoring for trenches, subfloors, and double-containment piping,or used individually for double-containment tanks, sumps, and small areas.
  • P-LFP6000 zone sensing cable,which comes with a factory-installed, heat-shrink end termination is also available for small area coverage.

Advanced technology

  • Prosino Group uses radiation-cross linking and conductive-polymer technology to make P-LFP6000 sensing cable mechanically strong and chemically resistant.
  • The core of the cable is constructed of two sensing wires, an alarm signal wire, and a continuity wire.
  • The core is encased in a conductive-polymer jacket and surrounded with a fluoropolymer braid. This rugged construction allows the cable to perform reliably in the most demanding environments.
