Our LeakTrap™ hydrocarbon detectors take the guesswork out of leak detection. While other measurements using oxidant demand or oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) can indicate a leak may be present, our clear, bell-jar devices actually capture hydrocarbon liquid or vapors even at very low ppm. This enables you to confirm a leak visually. Early detection means you can avoid escalating chemical, equipment, and maintenance costs from leaks caused by increased microbial growth, corrosion, and fouling.
Avoid production losses from reduced heat exchange capacity
Since hydrocarbons are food for microorganisms, a leak can increase microbial growth, including surface biofilms. Along with increased metal corrosion and fouling, increased biofilm growth can dramatically reduce heat exchange capacity, hampering plant production. LeakTrap hydrocarbon detectors protect you against such dire circumstances.
Detect the leak quickly and save money
Every minute a leak goes undetected means more potential operational impact. Our LeakTrap devices can be installed permanently on a cooling tower or can be used as a portable unit. This gives you maximum measurement flexibility so you can detect a leak quickly, saving time and money.
