MCG 8170 Hydrocarbon Vapor Sensor

L&J engineering MCG 8170 Hydrocarbon Vapor 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.

MCG 8170 Hydrocarbon Vapor Sensor
The MCG 8170 is a solid state vapor absorption device constructed of a special porous material that is extremely sensitive to hydrocarbons. When properly installed (in a dry monitoring well, for example), the MCG 8170 selectively and accurately senses hydrocarbon vapors leaching into the soil or ground water from leaking petroleum products. And, unlike many vapor sensors, the MCG 8170 is reusable and never has to be reset.
