Specificity Results:
Activated:  Evaluator claims that this sensor will respond to any material that is capable of dissolving the hydrocarbon-sensitive wax.
Not Activated:  Water.

Comments:
Sensor is activated when hydrocarbon-sensitive wax is dissolved, releasing a spring that activates an alarm.
Sensor is not reusable, and must be replaced after contact with hydrocarbons.
Liquid level was set at 1 inch (2.54 cm) during test.

The detector is not reusable and must be replaced after contact with hydrocarbons. California regulations require sensors to be tested annually to verify proper operation. This sensor is a self-destruct type and therefore cannot be used in California.
