TraceTek TT5000HUV Fuel Sensing Cable
The TraceTek TT5000-HUV is a fuel sensing cable that can detect and locate spills of gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, crude oil and similar hydrocarbon liquids. It will not detect or react to water. The TT5000-HUV cable is designed for use on aboveground pipe, around pump pads or valves where cable will be exposed to sunlight and weather
during its service life.
TraceTek TT5000-HUV sensing cable detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels at any point along its length, yet it does not react to the presence of water. Installed with a TraceTek Sensor Interface Module and TraceTek Alarm Panel, the cable senses the hydrocarbon liquid, triggers an alarm and pinpoints the location of the leak within one meter.
Designed for aboveground leak detection
TT5000-HUV sensing cable is designed for use on aboveground pipe, around pump pads or valves where the cable will be exposed to sunlight and weather during its service life. The sensor cable core is standard TT5000 with well documented response times, numerous third party qualifications and years of successful applications. The 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 or custom cut lengths with connectors attached in the factory. The cable is designed to be attached to the bottom of horizontal piping, spiraled around vertical pipe, or placed on flat surfaces below or around pumps and valves and other applications where surface level fuel leaks and spills can be anticipated.
Distinctive appearance and ready for refinery, tank farm and terminal applications
TT5000-HUV sensing cable has a matte black rope outer layer with a red tracer stripe. The rope outer layer is fabricated with thousands of individual filaments that add strength and excellent protection from the damaging effects of direct sunlight exposure. Additionally, this rope layer makes the sensor cable resistant to kinks and pliable, yet rugged enough for installation and long service life in pipe applications.
The sensor cable can have connectors wherever necessary; can be branched as needed and in general can be tailored to match the piping network. Circuits up to 1000 meters can be constructed by connecting individual segments. Multiple circuits can be monitored from a single control room location.
TraceTek uses radiation cross-linking and conductive-polymer technology to make TT5000-HUV cable. The combination of water and chemically resistant cable core coupled with the enhanced UV protection provided by the rope outer layer yield a product well suited for aboveground leak detection. The cable is able to withstand the rigors of installation and long years of service with exposure to rain, snow, sunlight and similar weather stresses.
