General Details

Slick Sleuth™ systems are used in a wide variety of industrial and environmental applications for real-time detection of oil leaks and spills. Should a leak or spill occur, Slick Sleuth provides instant detection and notification; enabling users to contain the spill and avoid environmental damage, costly cleanup, fines and regulatory penalties.

Patented non-contact scanning optic and detection processor provide high sensitivity and user-adjustable alarm thresholds for detection of small (micron-level) sheens or oils slicks in real time. Slick Sleuth’s output signals can be used to activate local and remote alarms, as inputs to central monitoring and control systems (SCADA, PLC, etc.) and/or to actuate valves, shut off pumps and initiate other corrective measures.
