This system is designed to detect leaks of liquid lithium from around demountable pipe joints. Demountable pipe joints such as vacuum fittings are likely spots for a leak in any system transporting fluids. Since liquid lithium reacts with air, water, concrete and other common materials, it is important to quickly detect a leak. The system will partially contain the leak and is designed to help the lithium cool down and solidify, thereby lowering reactivity. The leak detector system supports multiple channels, with a digital output for each channel.
