The KP 315 is a pressure and vacuum free system that uses gravitation for detection of leakage. Up to five double walled pipes can be connected to the manifold and leak detection unit that is placed in the tank sump. If there is need for surveillance of more pipes, another manifold can be added for surveillance of up to 9 double wall pipes in total. Up to six leak detection units can be connected to one alarm unit.
In case of a leak into the interstitial space of the pipes, the liquid (hydrocarbons, methanol, ethanol or water) will flow into the leak detection unit and trigger an alarm signal to the alarm unit.
The KP 315 can be connected to existing tank gauging systems using a standard I/O interface.
