Industrial plants can add hydrocarbon leak detection and monitoring to their operations - wirelessly.
Emerson Process Management, Chanhassen, Minn., has introduced the Rosemount 702 wireless discrete transmitter with Tyco Thermal Control's leak detection sensors for detecting liquid hydrocarbon. The integration of Emerson's Smart Wireless technology and Tyco's TraceTek sensors allows the devices to be used in a range of applications from single tanks to large tank farms and pipelines.
The devices help operators comply with government regulations and ensure that valuable hydrocarbons are not wasted. Distant tanks, pipelines and valves can be monitored without the need to run signal wires back to the control room, reducing the overall system cost.
