Early detection of leaks and spills that are a threat to safety, property or personnel is the key benefit of installing an acid or aqueous chemical leak detection system. In many applications hazardous fluids must be transported or stored in areas where inadvertent human contact or leaks to the environment are possible. Leak detection sensors are installed to minimize the potential for damage to people, plant, or property.

Knowing when a leak of this type of fluid has occurred and where to go to take corrective action is the major benefit for chemical leak detection monitoring in this type of application.
