Leakwise Oil-on-water Leak Detection

Leakwise ID-227 WL

The Leakwise ID-227WL Sensor is designed for installation at offshore oil tanker buoy terminals, jetties, and piers to detect floating oil sheens resulting from spills or leaks occurring during the loading and offloading process. Additional applications include detecting and monitoring floating hydrocarbons in lagoons, lakes, rivers, open channels, large retention ponds, and near offshore oil rigs.


  • The ID-227 System consists of a wave rider float incorporating:
  • An oil detection sensor
  • An integrated wireless controller
  • Wireless communication antennas
  • A solar panel with battery

    The wave rider float is designed to maintain the position of the detecting antenna at the liquid/air interface, despite fluctuations in the water level due to waves and tide. It has two field adjustable alarm points:

    • Low oil alarm — Detection of a predefined layer of hydrocarbons
    • High oil alarm — Detection of a hydrocarbon layer at a second predefined thickness

    The WSP-220 Digital Wireless Sensor Controller is built into the ID-227WL.
