TTK patented hydrocarbon detection is via a sensing element which is a coaxially extruded silicone jacket element containing Carbon Black. The black wire swells by quickly absorbing liquid hydrocarbon (lubrication oil or petroleum products). The outer layer of the black sensor wire is a watertight electrical insulator, permeable for liquid hydrocarbon only.

As the conductor swells, an integral microprocessor monitors for resistance. Once that resistance threshold is achieved, a leak response will be transmitted to the controller.
