TraceTek TT5000 Fuel Sensing Cable

TraceTek TT5000

The TraceTek TT5000 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 cable is available in outdoor (above ground), underground and indoor versions.


Distributed sensing

TT5000 sensing cable provides distributed leak detection and location for a wide range of applications. The cable is available in a variety of lengths to provide as much coverage as needed.


Design flexibility


TT5000 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.
TT5000 zone sensing cable—which comes with a factoryinstalled, heat-shrink end termination—is also available for small area coverage.



Advanced technology


TraceTek uses radiation-crosslinking and conductivepolymer technology to make TT5000 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.



Product characteristics
