In recent years, the PetroSense® hydrocarbon monitoring systems have become the technology of choice for in-situ monitoring of process water, produced water and waste water applications. In industrial installations, on shipboard, and in municipal installations, they have the ability to:
- Detect and quantify total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) presence in both vapor and dissolved form
- Remotely access and control the system and its settings, including alarm levels and sample timing
- Operate for extended periods without operator attention
- Interface with most commercial loggers, PLCs and samplers
The detection and measurement of total petroleum hydrocarbons was historically achieved by sampling followed by field or lab analysis. With the advent of PetroSense DHP probes, the world's first patented fiber optic chemical sensor built into a smart probe, it is now possible to measure ppm levels of TPH dissolved in water or as vapor in-situ. That is to say, in the field and in real time. Typical applications for PetroSentry are hydrocarbon breakthrough monitoring, leak detection at aboveground and underground storage tank sites and pipelines, as well as monitoring, remediation, wastewater, process water, storm water, aquifers, rivers and harbors.
cms-4000 Continuous monitoring system
The CMS-4000 is a simple, reliable tool to measure and monitor total petroleum hydrocarbons in water. With no moving parts and corrosion protected components, the system can be utilized in many different applications.
The CMS-4000 logger with the Fiber Optic Chemical Sensor (FOCS®) detects the presence of petroleum hydrocarbons in water.
The FOCS probe takes advantage of the interaction between the light traveling through a fiber and a water solution containing petroleum hydrocarbons. As the concentration of hydrocarbons increases, the light scattered from the proprietary probe fiber increases in a quantitative relationship. The probe output is monitored by a controller that has 0-5 volt or 4-20 mA output and remote access capability. The system can monitor up to four (4) probes. The probe is intrinsically safe* and designed to be remotely mounted in hazardous locations.

cms-100 web logger
Continuous monitoring system
The CMS-100 System has the capability of connecting up to twenty (20) DHP-485 hydrocarbons sensors. The data transmitted from the sensors is stored both in the logger and on our propriety PetroSense Website. The CMS-100 will display alarms on the web. It also has the capacity to send alarm notices via e-mail, up to five (5) addresses.

DHP - Digital Hydrocarbon Probe
The detection and measurement of petroleum hydrocarbons was historically achieved by sampling followed by field or lab analysis. With the advent of PetroSense® DHP probes, the world’s first patented fiber optic chemical sensor built into a smart probe, it is now possible to measure ppm levels of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) dissolved in water or as vapor in-situ. That is to say, in the field and in real time.
PetroSense DHP probes combine FCI's fiber optic chemical sensor (FOCS®) technology with digital electronics and an advanced microprocessor to make these products unique in the marketplace. FOCS technology is based on modulation of the transmitted light intensity when the sensor is exposed to hydrocarbons.
The FOCS sensor is designed with a proprietary chemical coating which responds reversibly to increasing or decreasing levels of hydrocarbons. The DHP probe is RS-485 compatible making it capable of being interfaced with many commercial data loggers, PLCs and samplers.
