Innovation driven by safety

HC-Tracker™ Leak Detection & Facility Integrity Monitoring


Developed in close cooperation with the petroleum industry, the WirelessHART HC-Tracker safety system is an end-to-end solution designed to quickly and accurately detect and provide notification of hydrocarbon leaks, temperature change, and acceleration/vibration events.

HC-Tracker is deployed in North America and uses the standards-based WirelessHART radio protocol, which is seamlessly integrated into 40 million+ devices. Modular system components offer application and maintenance flexibility. HC-Tracker also complies with US EPA guidelines on Design and Installation of Monitoring Wells.

The solution includes Syscor’s PCU-X01 Sensor Hub and HCD and/or HCDW Probe(s). Syscor’s PCU-X00 Repeater can assist where distance or obstructions hinder RF communication.

Leak Detection in Water Bodies

Water Body Monitoring
HCD Hydrocarbon Detectors can be partially or entirely submerged in water to detect hydrocarbons on or in the water. Stackable Monitoring Well tubing is recommended to protect the sensor probes. HCDW Hydrocarbon Detectors with Water Level may also be used if measurement of water level is needed.

Facility Integrity Monitoring

Facility Integrity Monitoring
PCU-X01 Sensor Hubs and HCD and/or HCDW Hydrocarbon Detector Probes may be installed on or near facility infrastructure using one of many mounting options. The system senses vibration, hydrocarbon release, and water level depending on configuration.
