Ultra-Low Cost Sensor for Hydrocarbon Leak Detection

The hydrocarbon leakages from oil and natural gas manufacture, transportation and refinery units could be catastrophic, yet their leak detections are costly. We have developed a compact and ultra-low cost HC sensor that could be easily installed at valves and pipes to detect the HC leak.

Advantages of Our Technologies

  • Low-cost and miniature design
  • Low power and networked with RF frequency
  • Based on C-Black Film Technology
  • Utilizing MEMS Micro-Fluidic design
