SS300 – Slick Sleuth

General Details

The Slick Sleuth™ SS300 is used in a wide variety of industrial and environmental applications for remote detection of oil leaks and spills. The Slick Sleuth SS300 provides real-time detection and alarm notification, enabling users to contain the leak or spill, thereby averting environmental damages, costly cleanup, fines, regulatory penalties and negative publicity.

The Slick Sleuth SS300’s optical sensor detects small (micron-level) amount of oil in real-time and can send signals to automatically activate or deactivate pumps, open or close valves, activate audio/visual alarms and send alarms to remote locations over wireless communications (radio telemetry or cellular networks). The Slick Sleuth SS300 can also be interfaced to the facility’s central monitoring and control system (SCADA, PLC, etc.).
