Water Leaks in Injection Molding Systems

Water leaks are common in the molding business. As much as 40% of downtime can be attributed to dealing with water leaks. These unscheduled mold stops cost injection molders thousands of dollars per year in lost hours, product, and missed deadlines.

Early Detection and Prevention of Water Leaks

Many injection molding processes run unattended for long periods. Continual leakage monitoring with our equipment systems allows you to be alerted to leaks as they occur. When water leaks occur the leak needs to be isolated while the molder determines where it is coming from. Often these leaks occur around static seals or failed O-rings, but not always. The best way to do that is likely with a combination of Water Alert® industrial water leak detectors.

Water Alert® SS-1 & Water Alert® SS-4

Our Model SS-1 and Model SS-4 water leak detectors are both excellent choices for single-spot detectors. Choosing between them depends on your specific needs.

  • Model SS-1 provides local and remote alarms. The local alarm also makes it a great choice for noisy areas.
  • Model SS-4 is used in situations where a local water leak detector is needed, but a local audible alarm is not.

Water Alert® Water Leak Sensor Cable

These water leak sensor cables are unique accessories that further expand the capabilities of a Water Alert® equipment system. These multi-conductor wires act as extensions of the sensing probes contained within our standard detectors, with gold-plated sensors every 3 feet along the cable. One or two sensor cables can be connected to any Water Alert® standard detector to detect liquid leakage that includes both solutions of water and ethylene glycol.

All of our commercial and industrial water leak equipment systems can be designed specifically for your particular setup and needs.
