Our Oil Leak Detector (Floating Electrode) from Jola Germany is a great device for installation in waste water holding tanks. The unit can detect floating oil on top of a water tank to a minimum level of 3-4 mm!
As most oils have a specific gravity of less than water, the oil rises to the surface. This oily layer floating on top is detected by Jola Oil Leak Detector and an alarm is generated past the 3-4mm level.
The four floats of this Oil Leak Detector help the unit sit on the surface & bob up & down with the tank level automatically. The sensor doesn’t need to be fixed at a certain level, like some other devices.
A special “ILS” version is also available for tanks which might be completely dry from time to time. Normally, a dry tank will activate the alarm. Various float materials are available including PP & stainless steel.
Also available with European ATEX certification for hazardous installations.
It’s a great device that meets the needs of Sydney Water & the local EPA regulations.
