MCG 8165 Hydrocarbon Sensor

L&J engineering MCG 8165 Hydrocarbon Sensor
  • Parts Per Million Accuracy

  • Certified for Ground Monitoring

  • Senses Hydrocarbon Liquids in Ground Water

  • Senses Hydrocarbon Vapors in Soil Surrounding Underground Tanks


The MCG 8160, MCG 8165 and MCG 8170 are a powerful trio of leak sensors. These three probes can function together as part of a complete leak detection system by sensing for leaks in existing tanks and testing for hydrocarbon liquids in ground water, as well as hydrocarbon vapors in the soil surrounding underground tanks. All three sensors feature L&J's exclusive 4-wire data highway, and can be used to communicate with L&J monitoring computers, such as the MCG 8100, for comprehensive remote tank monitoring.

The MCG 8165 Hydrocarbon Sensor
The MCG 8165 is used primarily in wet wells. It is made up of a float and flexible self bailing cable assemblies. The float keeps the sensing elements of the probe submerged at the very top of ground water. This is where hydrocarbons from a leak will show up first. Optionally, the MCG 8170 vapor sensor can be installed into the MCG 8165 which is a configuration that gives the probe unique hydrocarbon liquid and vapor sensing capabilities.
