HYDROCARBON SENSOR. System can report oil spills
to a remote location via satellite, giving exact location of spill. (Using
GPS) This system has already been proven using the sensors. It is the only
sensor available that can perform in this
application. It is maintenance free device. It is not a capacitive
The sensor can be used in small portable hand held units to detect ground
water contamination. The sensor can be placed in waste water sewage systems
to detect fuel/oil contaminations.
The following is a brief overview of the offered technology, and
various applications in which it would be practical.
Electronic state of the art sensor which can distinguish the difference
between oil/fuels and water. It can also distinguish the various grades
of oily fluids/fuels, and detect various levels (PPM) of water in emulsified
unctuous fluids. It is the only sensor known that will detect distilled
water. Because of its unique capabilities, the sensor cannot be fouled
by heavy grease or oil deposits, thus, it is maintenance free device. It
is not a capacitive type sensor, and therefore, is not affected by any
metal. It is a high quality device that can be completely encased in
a PVC or plastic enclosure. The sensor operates on voltage of 8.5 to 16.0
VDC and current drain is approxiamately 300 milliamps. Physical size
of the sensor is 0.5 x .75 inches. No calibration of the sensor is required
in the detection process.
The sensor is protected by four U.S. Patents with continuous application.
Foreign registration of the patents are in progress. A trademark
name for marine bilge applications is also owned.It is the intent of the
owner to sell outright, all letters of patents
and trademark or to license the technology to world marketing industries.
World wide applications include the following markets:
1. Marine bilge applications. (Any size vessel) A trademark was
created for this application.
2. Fuel/oil storage applications. Including elevated water
storage tanks, reservoirs and standpipes, horizontal tanks, chemical storage
Bilge Pump (AC/DC) control unit
The sensor and solid state control circuits can be used to turn on/off
any size pump that is used in bilge operations. The sensor will allow only
the water to be pumped overboard and not the oil or fuel normally found
in the bilge area. (EPA Req)
Bilge flood alarms.
A simple application of the sensor allows the bridge personnel of a vessel
to be alerted when bilge pumps fail and a compartment is flooding.
Fuel spill alarms.
The sensor can detect the presence of fuel oil, gasoline or engine oil
in the bilge area and signal the bridge crew.
Storage tank fill/overflow alarms.
Water level detection.
Percentage of water in emulsified oil/fuel.
Fuel tank leakage and ground contamination.
Small portable hand held units can be built to facilitate fuel/water storage
4. Home applications.
Aircraft holding tank overflow alarm.
Aircraft fuel tank water detection/alarm.
Mobile or underground fuel tank water detection/alarm.
5. Environmental applications.
Basement sump pump control.
The sensor can be used to control and monitor basement sump pumps. A unique
system of control would operate the pump periodically to insure that the
pump maintains its operating status. Should the pump fail, an alarm signal
could be remote to the occupants. The sensor will detect any type of contaminated
liquid and would not foul as a result of dirty conditions normally found
6. Concrete Stress
Placed on coast guard type buoys to detect oil spills. Can detect oil spills
when attached to tethered or untethered buoys.
Disposable device to determine the cure rate of high stress concrete. Buried
at certain location within the poured concrete, its small size makes for
an ideal way for engineers to determine the strength of the concrete vs.
the time it takes to dry at various points.Many other special applications
are under consideration.
