Question
Can an Orbisphere LDO sensor be used in an application containing hydrocarbons?
Summary
Suitability of the Orbisphere LDO sensors for use in hydrocarbon applications.
Answer

The Orbisphere LDO sensor, G1x00, K1x00, & M1100, are absolutely NOT compatible with hexane or any other hydrocarbon-based solvent. The spot material contains a styrene binder that will simply dissolve in hydrocarbons. Trace levels of hydrocarbons in water are generally OK, but the LDO sensor will never work in hexane (at least not for more than a few seconds).
