Rivertrace Engineering (RTE) SMART Bilge 15PPM

Rivertrace Engineering (RTE) SMART Bilge 15PPM

The Rivertrace Smart Bilge 15PPM Oil Content Monitor utilizes the innovative “Smart Cell” Detector Array Technology, developed by Rivertrace, to simultaneously analyze all three oil types (HFO, Diesel, and Emulsions) without the need for re-calibration. This advanced technology ensures accurate readings and eliminates the risk of monitor malfunction or incorrect measurements caused by optical cell fouling, a common issue. The monitor includes a manual cell cleaning device as a standard feature, enabling easy routine maintenance and keeping the “Smart Cell” in optimal operating condition. For calibration verification, replacement calibrated measuring cells can be purchased for convenient onboard changeover, and calibration verification kits allow the crew to demonstrate compliance with factory calibration to PSC Surveyors.

The Smart Bilge 15PPM Oil Content Monitor is also available in a 5ppm version if required and can be tailor-made for Hazardous Environments (Zone 1 & 2) as an Exd system with Auto Clean, housed within an explosion-proof cabinet. An AntiMagnetic version is also offered, specifically designed for submarines and minesweepers. The monitor finds application in various scenarios including Bilge Water Discharge, Rig Slop Tank Discharge, Air Cooler Drains Overboard Discharge, and Oily Water Separator Discharge. With a measurement range of 0-40 ppm and accuracy within +/- 5ppm up to 30 ppm, the monitor provides reliable oil and solids detection. It features adjustable oil alarm setpoints, response times of less than 5 seconds, and various input/output options including analog output and switch inputs for separator and flow status.
