Oil Spill Monitoring

Detect and contain oil leaks and spills using InterOcean's Slick Sleuth line of oil spill monitors. Mitigate risk, reduces costs associated with potential spills, and protect the environment

Slick Sleuth is an automated, optical, non-contact, oil-on-water sensor system used to remotely alert users to the presence of oil as an early warning device. Our spill monitoring systems are designed and fabricated for deployment in rugged industrial and marine environments for detection of sheen or slicks on water wet/dry surfaces.  In addition to real-time alerts, the detector’s outputs are commonly used to actuate valves, pumps and skimmers, enabling automated containment in remote locations for 24/7/365 protection.
