Syscor Sensor Transducers

What they do

Syscor’s stainless steel sensor transducers are designed to detect the presence of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons (C3 and heavier) as well as temperature, acceleration/vibration, and water level.


  • Syscor's sensor transducers use innovative polymer absorption (PA) sensor technology for reliable and accurate hydrocarbon detection without the risk of methane-triggered false alarms.
  • The sensor transducers can be configured with up to three separate PA sensors of any formulation as required by the application.
  • Both sensor transducer models have a stainless steel housing and are easy to install in the field.

Syscor, in close co-operation with the petroleum industry, has developed three proven, patent-pending PA sensor formulations:

  • Vapour Sensor: Best at detecting gaseous hydrocarbons in dry or humid air
  • Water Immersion Sensor: Best at detecting liquid or gaseous hydrocarbons when fully submerged in water or encased in ice for extended periods of time
  • Interface Sensor: Best at detecting liquid or gaseous hydrocarbons when sensor will be in air or temporarily submerged in water
