Fast & Repeatable Detection
By using a method that is derived from the principle of total internal reflection to detect the presence or not of liquid.
Once the leak has been attended to, the SIALD9000 can be dried and re-installed.
The Leak Detection unit incorporates an electronic trigger which provides a digital output that denotes the presence or absence of liquid (leak).
The sensor and associated electronics are housed within a capture vessel which is connected to the chamber between the two seals of the Legacy Chemical Injection Pump such that any leakage past the high pressure plunger seal is captured in the vessel that contains the sensor unit.
When no liquid is present (no leak) no output is received but when liquid covers the sensor the output switches indicating a presence of liquid (leak).
