Optical sensor detects leaks


General DPN

To eliminate the problems associated with fluid leaking from tanks, pumps, vessels, trays and other containers, Baumer has introduced the FODK 23 optical sensor for leak monitoring.

The evaluation electronics for this sensor are housed in a chemically-resistant, IP67-rated sheath made of Teflon PFA. Typically, 1 ml of leaked liquid will make the sensor react. The sensor is screwed or glued onto a dry floor or base panel in the area where leakage might occur. The sensor’s PVC or PFA installation clip allows the device to be snapped into place and removed quickly without requiring tools.
